Trademark reveals release date for Smash Ultimate’s 4th DLC fighter Terry Bogard

The release date for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s fourth DLC character Terry Bogard, hailing from the SNK series Fatal Fury and King of Fighters, may have been revealed thanks to a trademark leak. 

UPDATE – November 1 at 1:30 PM EST

Nintendo has indicated that there will be maintenance on servers from Wednesday, November 6 at 4:50 PM PST until 7:30 PM. It’s possible that Terry may arrive during this window. This would line up with how other fighters have been released.

The original story follows:

As pointed out on Twitter by NanaKarobi, a SNK Corporation trademark has been added to the upcoming event Smash by the Sword.  This trademark was not present in the previous event, Rise of the Tetriminos. 

The event kicks off on November 1, leading many to believe that the SNK fighter will make his debut that day, or soon thereafter. 

The Spirit of the Sword event runs from November 1st through November 4th. This means that Terry Bogard could make his debut on any of these days. The new DLC fighter will be available through the Fighters Pass for $24.99, as well as individually for $5.99. 

His stage, the King of Fighters arena, as well as a selection of tracks from the Fatal Fury and King of Fighters series, will be included with purchase. 

The discovery of Terry’s release date through trademark is somewhat fitting, given that’s how it was discovered that he would be joining the roster in the first place. Before he was announced, SNK Corporation’s name was discovered at the bottom of the UK description for Fighter Pass 4, before being taken down from the site. 

This ramped up the speculation engine leading up to Terry’s announcement, with his inclusion being the frontrunner ahead of other SNK fighting game alumni. 

GameeXplainSNK has joined the ranks of companies trademarked at the bottom of events.

Terry’s full move set has yet to be revealed for Super Smash Bros Ultimate, but so far we know that the iconic Buster Wolf and Power Wave will make an appearance. 

Other speculation has pointed at Rising Tackle being his Up+B special, among other special moves from Fatal Fury and King of Fighters.

Smash’s DLC has so far been met with mostly wide critical acclaim, with the exception of Dragon Quest representative Hero. He has drawn some critique for having too much RNG in his kit, something Terry is unlikely to mirror.

With Terry debuting on or around the start of November, he should be tournament legal for upcoming events, including the Super Smash Bros Ultimate Online Open ran by Nintendo on November 9-10, and Genesis 7 on January 24.


xQc responds to Hungrybox’s Super Smash Bros challenge

Twitch star Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel has responded to Smash Bros pro Juan ‘Hungrybox’ Debiedma’s challenge of a game after the streamer had a few issues with the iconic Nintendo title. 

Just like plenty of Twitch’s other top streamers, xQc isn’t tied to one game. Sure, his fans would love to see him grinding Overwatch again, but the Canadian likes to dabble in other titles during his streams. 

Most recently, some fans got their wish as the former Overwatch League star decided to have a go at playing Super Smash Bros Ultimate online against other players. However, it didn’t work out all that well for xQc. 

The Canadian streamer let loose on his opponent, the connection, and how “trash” Smash is after a few issues with lag. However, Hungrybox wants to give him a helping hand and get xQc back playing Smash.

Hungrybox is considered one of the “Five Gods” of Smash.

After xQc started playing Smash during his November 27 stream, Hungrybox quickly floated a challenge out on Twitter. “@xQc let’s play smash this week,” he posted, sparking excitement from fans who wanted to see the pair go head-to-head. 

Though, xQc didn’t respond as quickly as some may have liked, taking a few hours to get back to the Smash star. 

When he did, however, he was seeking Hungrybox’s help rather than hitting him with some trash talk about a potential match. “You better teach me how to not get rolled by bottom 1% players,” the former Overwatch star replied. 

Seeing the pair join forces on one stream will, no doubt, delight fans of both – especially if Hungrybox is able to coach xQc up and turn him into a solid Smash player. 

Who knows, we might even see xQc ultimately take on Tyler1 after he managed to impress a number of Smash players with his performance against Hungrybox’s fellow pro MKLeo.
