Smash Bros. Ultimate being updated to Version 6.1.0 soon

Getting things in order

As was expected, a considerable update is coming to Smash Bros. Ultimate. This usually happens following the release of a DLC character, as there are bugs to be worked out, and other issues to take care of. While we don't have a specific date, we do know that the Version 6.1.0 should be right around the corner.

Kirby's voice actress details the process of recording lines for 'Kirby Terry' in Smash Bros. Ultimate

It was a secret at first!

Terry Bogard is now available in Smash Bros. Ultimate, which means Kirby has a new transformation. In a new blog post, voice actress Makiko Ohmoto, who performs the voice of Kirby, explained how it all went down. Check out the full blog post below, with translation courtesy of PushDustIn and Ninten89.

So Terry participated in Super Smash Bros. I almost never play fighting games; I only played two of them: Street Fighter 2 and Fatal Fury, when I played it together with my younger brother who really enjoys them.

During the recording, they would always say “This is a character from a certain game” without actually telling me the actual title, but I remember hearing these quotes very much.

So when I asked,
“Is this Fatal Fury?”
“Oops! It got spoiled. That’s right.”
“Is this Terry Bogard?”
“That’s right, that’s right.”

Yaaaay!! It’s Terry! And thus personally, my tension went up so much. I tried to imitate something like native English. Was that how his voice [sounded like] at that time?

Screaming the very famous finisher attack quotes of protagonists from games I played in the past, like SF2, Garou, and also Dragon Quest, is a really pleasant thing.

Recalling those memories is so fun. The people who created them should have had even more fun.

I just watched the video right now. Sakurai-san… he created over 20 models… He also included 50 songs… He always throws the ball with all his might in order to make everyone pleased the most as always, that’s really great indeed!

And Terry is cool~ If I can use him it’s going to be so much fun~ But it might look difficult Dear all veterans, please handle him well.

I also wanted to say ‘Burn Knuckle!’

Playtonic's Ed Bryan on seeing Banjo and Kazooie join Smash Bros. Ultimate, says Playtonic is working on "things you wouldn't believe"

A very RARE interview

Ed Bryan, former RARE dev, is now a part of the Playtonic team. Back in the day, Bryan was responsible for bringing the look of Banjo and Kazooie to life. In an interview with Nintendo Life, Bryan talks about his reaction to seeing the bear and bird pop up in Smash Bros. Ultimate.

That was amazing. Seeing the response online to some characters from a game made 20-odd years ago was exciting and humbling; to think that these characters and the game are even remembered, let alone cherished the way they are is great and weird at the same time.

Banjo and Kazooie being in Smash is old news now, as far as the speed of internet information goes. We want to know about what's next! What is Playtonic cooking up right now? Bryan wouldn't share specifics, but it certainly sounds like some exciting content!

Oh man, I’ve seen so much already, things you wouldn’t believe! I’m settling in and over the last couple of days I’ve been sketching and doodling; trying to visualise the designers ideas so we can crack on with this next thing. It’s very exciting! As for cryptic clues, if I want to last more than 2 weeks here I’d better keep quiet….

A smashing for the ages

Smash Bros. Ultimate glitch with Terry Bogard discovered

Terry, no!

It takes a very specific setup, but it appears that a glitch that ends up freezing characters has been discovered with Terry Bogard. You can see the glitch in action above, which admittedly will only occur with unique circumstances. This is likely to be patched out very soon.

Smash Bros. Ultimate 'Terry Bogard' gameplay round-up

Mai Shiranui will not be joining Super Smash Bros. Ultimate because the game is "for good boys and girls of many different ages"

Mai oh Mai!

In the recent Terry Bogard reveal live-stream from Masahiro Sakurai, many SNK cameo appearances were announced. One major character missing however, was Mai Shiranui. Sakurai gave a reason for her lack of inclusion, as "Smash is for good boys and girls of many different ages." Mai is known for her scandalous clothing and fan-service heavy character design, so it doesn't come as too much of a surprise that her character would not be allowed to join Super Smash Bros. It seems that Bayonetta will be as far as sexiness goes in terms of fighters in the Nintendo published franchise.
