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.

Super Smash Bros Melee introduced many playable fan-favorite stages such as Final Destination and Battlefield, though none may be more infamous than Hyrule Temple. Now, a fan has recreated the Zelda stage within Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2.

Hyrule Temple is an absolute blast to play in a casual setting as it’s one of the largest stages in the game and has five sections for players to battle in – three on the upper area, and two on the lower.

Due to the stage’s layout and Smash’s casual scene consisting of items and multi-player brawls, it’s really the perfect battleground for chaos to ensue.

As it turns out, Hyrule Temple isn’t just a good Zelda-inspired Smash stage. It also makes for a pretty unique map in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater.

Hyrule Temple has appeared in other Smash games since Melee.

Redditor Skramblez took to the popular site to share their recreation with the world. In a post titled “I recreated Hyrule Temple in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2,” the gamer showed off the map in a video accompanied by Zelda music.

As you can see in the video, the stage’s sections are split into their own variants of a skate park. Some of the smaller paths are replaced by rails for skaters to grind on, and there’s plenty of gaps to clear.

The edges of the stage are replaced with ramps, so you shouldn’t be flying off the stage like you’ve still taken a Ganondorf F-Smash at a high percentage.

As a nice touch, and sticking with the Zelda lore, Skramblez even made the character look a bit like Link – at least the most Link-like the skateboarding game could allow for.

Instead of a green tunic, the player has a green hoodie. Instead of the green cap, it’s a beanie. However, the character does have long blonde hair, just like the Hero of Time.

According to Skramblez, it took fifteen hours to make the map. “The park editor’s not the most intuitive, but you can do a lot once you get used to it,” they explained.
