This may have been the location of SNK's original office.
Also, let's appreciate how clever the reveal trailer was for Terry in Smash.
My favorite part is Geese falling off the building (yet again) while leaping for the invitation.
Honestly, I never would've believed Terry Bogard (or any SNK character) would've made it into Smash Bros. I know SNK is more popular in Asia than in Western regions, and Fatal Fury Special was actually super popular in Japan when it first came out, but it still seemed a little outside the scope of Smash. But no complaints from me, of course.
But imagine, there's gonna be a Terry Bogard amiibo. I wonder if it'll actually be used for anything special outside of SSBU...
Giuseppe: Let’s switch gears completely. When I interviewed you last year, we talked about Metal Slug and the possibility to bring it back. You told me you were undecided about whether modern gamers would accept the one-hit-death mechanic. How is that discussion go? Are you still discussing it? Are you actually working on a new Metal Slug now?
Yasuyuki Oda: Nothing is decided at the moment, nothing has actually been started, but we’re definitely in the phase where we started talking about “let’s bring it back. We want to bring it back.” The fans want it.
On whether we’d do the one-hit kill, there are still a lot of discussions about that, but I like the idea of maybe bringing two modes, perhaps with an easy mode with a life gauge.
But there is still a lot of discussion going on internally about that. We want to make sure we do it right.

Just keep the one-hit kill. In consumer (non-arcade) versions, there's always the option to have infinite continues. Some games even have an easy mode that gives you infinite H instead of just the basic gun. I don't see anything wrong with that.
It occurred to me how expensive this game could be, though. For everything, it's base game + 1st season DLC + 2nd season DLC + Nintendo Switch Online subscription to play online. Of course, those extra expenses are strictly optional. Shizumaru is the one DLC character I was most interested in, and fortunately, he's free. Also, I don't typically care to play competitively (especially if the online lag turns out to be bad), so I don't necessarily need that.

Here's a trailer for the second season of DLC for SamSho from EVO Japan.
Mina we already knew about. Sogetsu was accidentally leaked by SNK, themselves, a while back. Iroha has been one of the most requested characters (for obvious reasons), so her inclusion is not surprising. (This does mark her first "canon" appearance in the series, since her only previous appearance, SamSho VI, is simply a non-canon "dream match" game.) That leaves only one mystery fighter.
Personally, I'm not interested in any of the second season DLC characters so far.
In other EVO Japan news, here's the first gameplay of Haohmaru in Soul Calibur VI.
