Fatal Fury's Terry Bogard is joining Super Smash Bros. Ultimate — let's have a look at what we know about his Smash iteration so far

Last week, we were treated to the news that SNK's Terry Bogard will be joining the ever-growing roster of gaming's grandest crossover, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, alongside the announcement that more characters than the initial five promised are currently in development as post-launch content for the title.

For anyone who's into fighting games (so, the vast majority of people who visit this site), Terry Bogard is definitely a familiar face even though he hasn't been part of the Super Smash Bros. series until now. With Ryu and Ken from Street Fighter setting some precedent, we have a fairly good idea of what a character like Terry will probably feel like and play like in Smash, so let's see what we've seen from his limited gameplay footage so far, and what seems likely for him outside of that.

'Making Super Smash Bros. Ultimate was the last mission Iwata gave to me' - Masahiro Sakurai's Game Awards speech pays tribute to late Nintendo boss

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is easily the greatest video game crossover title ever, and its ambition was realized by the hard work of director Masahiro Sakurai and the teams at Sora ltd. and Bandai Namco.

The Japan Game Awards were held earlier this week where all of that effort was recognized as Smash Ultimate was the biggest winner of the night taking home the Grand Award — likely equivalent to the game of the year award — among many others, and Sakurai himself took the stage to give the acceptance speech.

Capcom revealed today that the next crossover costume coming to Street Fighter 5 will be in the form of Vajra Asura for Kage with missions beginning later this month.

Banjo-Kazooie's rapid jab can lock opponents in for massive damage in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and it also works on small characters

We've seen several characters have amazing multi-jabs so far in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Namely, Inkling seems to have the best one in most people's eyes.

I think we can mention Banjo-Kazooie amongst those same fighters now after this video. They are exhibited giving massive damage from their multi-jab and showing the ability to punish people using directional influence the wrong way.

Kazooie stares at the blast zone with a look of absolute terror when Banjo gets launched in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

There's plenty to love and appreciate when it comes to the unlikely bear and bird duo that is Banjo Kazooie, but one of my favorite parts of playing through their first two games on Nintendo 64 was seeing Kazooie's often sassy and sometimes brutally honest personality poke through.

Banjo's relatively carefree nature was wonderfully juxtaposed with Kazooie's more pessimistic and hot-headed reactions, and it seems a hint of that has been sprinkled into their Super Smash Bros. Ultimate appearance.

The Street Fighter 5 community was happy to see yet another new costume en route to the game's Fighting Chance mode yesterday when Capcom showed off No Escape Balrog for the first time... only it wasn't the first time at all.

Some of you may have done a bit of chin-scratching when the still image of Boxer in his trunks with a chain around his neck was revealed. Though he's never been in the game directly, this version of Balrog was shown over two years ago at the 2017 SF5 ELeague event.

We're excited to bring you some Mortal Kombat art from the talented Nick Huddleston as we check out some up-close and often bloody headshots of some of the franchise's most recognizable fighters.

Though these certainly have a cartoon feel about them, the intensity of the expressions and the tasteful smattering of blood in many give these pieces a very tangible creepy component that we just can't shake.

Augmented reality technology is an exciting prospect for the future of video games and entertainment, but we still seem to be in the proof of concept phase before anything has the potential to take off with the wider consumer base.

Tokyo Game Show 2019 is currently going on with all of the latest games in development being shown off, but there's an interesting piece of tech currently floating around the show floor for an already released game. NTT Docomo is allowing attendees to see a special augmented reality version of Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition which can let them view fights from never-before-seen viewing angles and depth.

Infiltration returns to the Capcom Pro Tour soon, how will the community receive him?

It was around this time last year that we first heard reports that one of the top Street Fighter 5 players in the world, Lee "Infiltration" Seon-woo, had been involved in a domestic violence incident with his ex-wife.

This resulted in Lee's taking the rest of 2018 and all of 2019 off from playing in the Capcom Pro Tour, but his self-imposed ban will soon be lifted and Lee will more than likely be re-joining the fighting game community. Not everyone has expressed satisfaction with this.

Essentially, this makes it so that a basic combo string will either stay safe against a blocking opponent or complete its sequence of attacks with successful hits. This can happen without requiring any reaction on the part of the player.
