Nintendo have finally given Super Smash Bros. Ultimate players their first-look at the game’s newest fighter, Terry Bogard, with a whole host of new details revealed. 

The popular Fatal Fury character has looked set to take the fourth DLC roster slot for quite some time, following a number of leaks and rumors, and now we know he will join the battle on November 6. 

Those who are familiar with Bogard from the SNK series will notice that his aesthetic has been somewhat freshened up in terms of attire, but game director Masahiro Sakurai confirmed that they wanted to keep as much of that trademark 90s look as possible when the fighter was in development.

NintendoNintendo have revealed Terry Bogard’s move list, changes in the 6.0.0 update and more.

Sakurai featured heavily in the character’s first-look video, which was uploaded to Nintendo’s official YouTube channel on the day of his release, walking fans through different things that they can expect from him in-game. 

Bogard has a characteristic that not all of the fighters on the roster possess, too, as the imposing figure will always face the opponent – no matter the direction you choose to travel in. This, the director says, is a sign of focus.

What did we learn? 

A few new details were revealed in the new videom, but let’s start with the move set. Bogard’s moves are all similar to those from the Fatal Fury game series, which are all be listed below. 

Terry Bogard Smash move-set

  • Neutral Attack: Jab, Body Blow and High Kick
  • Dash Attack: Power Charge
  • Tilt Attacks: Middle Kick (Side), Rising Upper (Up) and Under Kick (Down)
  • Side Smash: Backspin Kick
  • Up Smash: Wild Upper
  • Down Smash: Slide Kick
  • Midair Moves: Jump Chop, Jump Kick, Jump Backward Kick and Somersault Kick
  • Down Air: Jump Karate Punch – Meteor Effect
  • Forward and Backwards Throw: Buster Throw
  • Down Throw: Neck Breaker Drop
  • Up Throw: Grasping Upper
  • Dodge Attack: Special, Terry-specific mechanic that allows Terry to counter-attack during a spot dodge. 
  • Specials: Power Wave, Burning Knuckle, Crack Shoot, Rising Tackle and Power Dunk
  • Super Special: Power Geyser and Buster Wolf

NintendoSuper Special moves can be done past 100% or lower than 33HP in Stamina mode. A “GO” Symbol will appear above Terry’s portrait to show when you can do it.

Just to shed some more light on one of his more interesting attacks, the dodge attack can be performed by the character. “Pressing the attack button immediately after a spot dodge performs a counterattack. During a Dodge Attack, your upper body becomes invincible,” the video states. 

Aside from that, Bogard can also use an offensive cancel option to lead into a special. After the first phase of animation for some moves, players can quickly switch into a special for a second shot at the enemy.

New Stage: King of Fighters Arena

Unlike traditional stages, the edges of the Arena are walled off and can only be broken through after characters have taken enough damage. Therefore, it is unlikely to see tournament play, at least for a while.

NintendoSuper Smash Bros. Ultimate’s 6.0.0 update has brought a change to Battle Arenas.

Music list

This one is going to exciting for fans of SNK games, as 50 brand new tracks from their titles are coming to the game. The music list includes: Psycho Soldier (in both the English and Japanese themes), Samurai Showdown, Art of Fighting, King of Fighters, Fatal Fury series and many others.


So, there you have it! A brand new fighter has joined the battle in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, adding to what many people believe to be the most comprehensive roster in fighting game history.

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.
