The currently unnamed Fatal Fury stage is an upcoming downloadable stage for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. It will be the home stage of Terry, as part of Challenger Pack 4, and is planned to be released in November 2019. It is a large arena themed around The King of Fighters tournament, which was featured in the Fatal Fury series before branching out into its own series with the same name.

Stage overview[edit]

The stage's layout appears to be a simple flat ring, similar to most stages in the Fatal Fury and King of Fighters series, which appears slightly elevated above the ground. It takes place in a large, arena-like stadium similar to Pokémon Stadium and Boxing Ring. Like those stages, a large jumbotron that records the on-screen action can be seen in the background. Characters such as Ryo Sakazaki make cameos just outside of the ring, similarly to how they do while watching the fight in various The King of Fighters games.

Origin[edit]

The stage is an original design based on the various arenas from The King of Fighters series, deriving primarily from The King of Fighters '96, XII, and XIV. Its overall open-field design, along with the jumbotron bearing the King of Fighters logo, most prominently resembles the Arena Stage from XII. However, the bold green design of this logo is completely original to Smash. The circular design of the main platform appears closest to Kagura Stadium from '96, including the "KOF" logo in the center, which has a Smash logo in place of the "O". The construction of the stands and overall muted metallic tone bears strong resemblance to the Antonov Super Arena from XIV.

"The King of Fighters" is a recurring tournament in SNK's gaming universe. The concept was first introduced in Fatal Fury: King of Fighters, although canonically, the first time a King of Fighters tournament was ever held was in Art of Fighting 2. Recently, the tournament's most prominent appearances are in The King of Fighters series, which was based on the idea developed on both series.

Trivia[edit]

  • Banners in the background include the logos for Alpha and Arex⁠—recurring brands in the King of Fighters series⁠—as well Fatal Fury and King of Fighters themselves, many of which incorporate the Smash logo. One banner reads "Neo Challenger", as a reference to both the Neo Geo and Terry's status as a newcomer to Smash.
