The latest Super Smash Bros Ultimate DLC fighter is Terry Bogard from the Fatal Fury series. The character comes with all of his iconic special moves as well as some new mechanics that allow the character to use two different side B moves depending on the direction he is facing.

Super Smash Bros Ultimate is the latest entry in the series. The Nintendo Switch exclusive game may not be all that different from Super Smash Bros for Wii U and 3DS, but it's an extremely solid title with a huge character roster and plenty of content.

But you might notice something in this review – a distinct lack of complaints. Well, much of the game is, of course, taken straight from Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, including characters, many animations and effects, but that’s it. It has so much new and changed that it feels completely distinct from that game, and the handheld form factor is another fantastic plus. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate really does include everything Smash of the past has offered and more, but it needs, perhaps, more new stages and costumes. They certainly wouldn’t go amiss.

Super Smash Bros Ultimate is now available on Nintendo Switch in all regions.
