Terry Bogard is officially on his way to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and the first footage of the next character released by Nintendo shows that two iconic moves are coming to the franchise.

Nintendo’s latest Direct brought some huge announcements for the Switch console, confirming that Overwatch was heading to the handheld console in October, while announcing the long-awaited arrival of Banjo-Kazooie is finally here, with the bird and bear duo available on Smash right now.

Terry Bogard was also revealed as the next DLC fighter to be added to the game, and with hype already building for SNK’s legendary character to join the Smash ranks, Nintendo Europe gave fans a sneak peek at him in-game, and some of the moves he’ll have on arrival.

NintendoFatal Fury’s Terry Bogard is coming to Smash.

Terry Bogard is the lead character from SNK’s Fatal Fury game, a 1991 Neo Geo title. Described by SNK as “macho” and “stand-out”, Bogard is finally coming to Super Smash Bros. 28 years after his first appearance in a game, and bringing with him two legendary moves from his past.

Anyone who has played a Fatal Fury title will be aware of his Power Wave move, which sees him slam his fist into the ground, releasing a wave of energy towards his opponent that knocks them back and deals damage.

On top of that, Burn Knuckle, where Terry leaps towards his opponent and strikes them with his fist surrounded by energy will also be in Smash, giving retro gamers the opportunity to use the moves against some of Nintendo’s most popular figures.

Bogard was the iconic frontman of Japanese company SNK’s entry into fighting games, appearing in Fatal Fury games up until 1999, when 1st Contact was released.

For fans, the opportunity to see the character use his legendary moves in the world of Super Smash Bros. is finally on its way, but they’ll have to wait just a couple more months before they can get their hands on him, and start dishing out Power Waves to everyone in sight.

Smash Ultimate fans wanting to send an iconic invitation to a friend or family member can now get their chance as physical envelopes can now be shipped through My Nintendo.

A common motif in Smash is characters receiving an “invitation” with the game’s logo to indicate they had been chosen to join the star-studded fighting game.

This has been seen in many DLC fighter announcements such as Terry Bogard’s and Min Min’s trailers where multiple characters fight over the invitation with whoever receives it being added to the roster.

As such, the invitations have become an iconic piece of Smash and video game history, which is saying a lot considering they’re just pieces of paper.

The Smash invitation has become a series icon.

Be that as it may, fans can now earn these invitations through My Nintendo for 400 Platinum Points. Each set contains three white, green and blue cards, envelopes and stickers with the Smash logo.

In order to get the invitations, you’ll have to follow these steps:

1) Sign in to your Nintendo Account.
2) Redeem your Platinum Points for the item you’d like to get. You will receive a promo code.
3) Select “Access Now” to visit store.nintendo.com.
4) Select “Add to cart.”
5) Enter the code that you received in the pop-up.
6) Complete your transaction and your item will be shipped to you!

The cards come in white, blue and green.

Keep in mind, however, that this is a limited-time item so be sure to grab it while you can. Interestingly, the reward code will expire on March 8, 2021.

The expiry is note-worthy as it could be yet another sign pointing towards the release of DLC fighter 9. As Dexerto has previously reported, there are plenty of indicators so far suggesting that the next character will be released in March.

The next wave of amiibo consisting of Byletyh, Terry and Banjo is scheduled for March and in the past, all amiibo releases have coincided with a DLC fighter reveal.

Who could the final three fighters be?

March is also when the Tales Of Festival will begin, and signs have pointed to a Tales of Symphonia representative potentially being the next DLC fighter, so this is just one other thing to keep in mind.

In any case, be sure to pick up your own Smash invitations so you can invite whoever you want to the game while you still can.
