Nintendo held a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Direct earlier today in order to show off the abilities of the newly-released fighter, Terry Bogard. The character brought with him several Fatal Fury cameos, but series creator Masahiro Sakurai confirmed that the kunoichi Mai Shiranui couldn’t appear in the family-friendly brawler.
A few Fatal Fury characters will make an appearance in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on the game’s new King of Fighters coliseum-style stage, including Geese Howard, Joe Higashi, and more. After showcasing all the cameos, Sakurai said Mai isn’t included because “Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is for good boys and girls of many different ages, so we decided not to feature her. Please forgive us.”
