Nintendo officially revealed the next fighter in their flagship fighting game series Super Smash Bros Ultimate

Terry Bogard from SNK’s Fatal Fury is set to join the cast of characters from across video game history.

The reveal came during a September 4 Nintendo Direct filled with surprises including Overwatch coming to Switch.

The announcement came in the wake of an SNK copyright appearing on the game’s Challenger Pack 4 on Nintendo’s UK website, leading many to believe the next DLC would in fact be from an SNK title.

Prominent leaker Vergeben had hinted earlier that Terry Bogard would be next up in a GameFAQs post on September 2.

The Smash Direct indicated that Terry would be arriving in November and even more DLC fighters were coming in the future. 

Banjo-Kazooie is coming to Smash on September 4

N64 era Nintendo fans will finally be able to get their hands on Banjo-Kazooie in Super Smash Bros Ultimate.

Catching many fans off guard, it was announced that the Microsoft-owned duo would be making their way to the game later on in the day.

Banjo-Kazooie were first revealed to be coming to Smash back at E3 2019 along with Dragon Quest’s Hero who has since entered the game, albeit not without controversy due to the fighter’s reliance on RNG.

More about Banjo’s moveset is set to be revealed after the direct.

NintendoThe bird-and-bear duo are the next DLC fighters for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

The release window for Banjo was first hinted by 7/11 stores in Japan with a pop-up display featuring the newest fighter. The displays were intended to stay up until September 15, 2019.

The last time 7/11 displays were put up, they advertised Hero’s imminent release back in July. In that case, the displays went up July 24 and Hero was released on July 30.

Animal Crossing player’s crazy Smash Ultimate tournament venue goes viral

An Animal Crossing New Horizons player designed a brilliant Smash Ultimate tournament venue in-game, and many fans are absolutely loving it.

The global health crisis really hurt LAN events for Smash Ultimate and other fighting games in 2020. Many venues that thrived off hosting events suffered immensely, and while players have been missing in-person competitions, that didn’t stop one player from recreating a tournament venue within Animal Crossing.

Animal Crossing is chock full of materials and objects that work well to design a fighting game venue, and Redditor ‘timshady11’ made good use of them for their creation.

Anyone who has ever been to a weekly tournament at a bar, restaurant or arcade is familiar with the general layout. You have the front desk for signups and registration, numerous setups for people to compete and a spot designated for streaming high-profile matchups.

The Smash scene got a bit beaten up.

In this case, timshady11 included all of those things and then some. As you can see in the video, there is a desk area by the entrance with a laptop and Smash Ultimate book to keep track of tournament entrees.

Moving on from there, the venue has all sorts of desks with two chairs, a monitor and a Nintendo Switch. In total, we count six of these non-featured setups, which is a respectable number for a weekly event.

The venue also has numerous arcade cabinets, vending machines, booths, couches, and of course, a stream setup. That section is pretty well-made with cameras, a computer, and three couches in the vicinity for observers.

Users on Reddit were certainty impressed with the creation. “Awesome! The aesthetic is cozy and cool, really like the vibe overall,” one complimented.

“This is amazing! It made me really nostalgic for IRL tournaments tho,” another remarked with a frowny face emoji.

If you want to visit the island for yourself, timshady11 revealed it as: DA-3428-2657-9989.

While Smash tournaments have been forced to move online, hopefully, players will get the opportunity to return to their venues in the foreseeable future and duke it out in person once again. Until then, at least there’s always the Animal Crossing island to tide us over.
