Today marks a special occasion in the world of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Joining the ever-growing roster of gaming all-stars in the celebrated crossover title is Terry Bogard! The Legendary Wolf of the Fatal Fury series brings with him a ton of NEOGEO love from SNK’s storied past of arcade fighters. However, as with any new series joining Smash, curious players will want to give these games a try. If Terry has you wondering about Fatal Fury and The King of Fighters, or if you’re looking for new fighting games for cheap, then you’re in luck!
A power wave of fighting game greats
For a welcome surprise, a good few Arcade Archives NEOGEO titles from SNK are on sale for 50% off via the Nintendo Switch eShop! In other words, these games (ordinarily priced at $7.99 USD) are slashed down in price to $3.99. The games in question are as follows:
- Fatal Fury
- Fatal Fury Special
- Garou: Mark of the Wolves
- The King of Fighters ’95
- The King of Fighters ’97
- The King of Fighters 2000
Incidentally, during the lengthy Terry Bogard presentation for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, game director Masahiro Sakurai had plenty to say about the new DLC fighter’s origins. If you don’t know where to start, Sakurai highly recommended Fatal Fury Special and The King of Fighters ’95 near the beginning of the broadcast, both games on sale today. In addition, while it is not discounted, Sakurai also suggested The King of Fighters ’98 for its strategic elements.
By and large, there is no shortage of Fatal Fury or The King of Fighters games to try out on the Nintendo Switch. With Terry’s hallowed inclusion in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and this timely sale, there is probably no better time to get on board either series! With this in mind, will you be picking up any of these fighting games? Might you go with Sakurai’s personal recommendations? Let us know which of these you plan on giving a go in the comments below.
