A new Super Smash Bros. Ultimate presentation is set for tomorrow morning, and it's a whole 45 minutes long. You might think this would mean a number of new announcements, but from what Nintendo is saying, expect some patch notes and a whole lot of Terry.
The presentation, set to go live at 5 a.m. PT, is "roughly" 45 minutes long. It'll once again feature Super Smash Bros. Ultimate director Masahiro Sakurai going over a new character, this time SNK and Fatal Fury star Terry Bogard. But according to a tweet from the Nintendo Versus account, don't expect any other fighters to show up.

Considering the Hero and Banjo streams were, for example, somewhere in the neighborhood of 20 minutes long, this is double the length and no teases. There is a version 6.0 patch set to go live, but you have to wonder what's in that patch if its enough to fill a double-length stream alongside Terry.
Or maybe Terry Bogard is just that complex of a character? There could be a lot of Mii costumes arriving alongside him, or some interesting nuances about his stage or a lot of music getting added to the game. The thumbnail for Nintendo's announcement also shows a fightstick next to Sakurai, so maybe there's some new minigame or gameplay integration coming to honor Terry's fighting game roots.
I'm just spitballing, because I'm frankly baffled that this presentation is 45 minutes long. Even when Super Smash Bros. Ultimate was dominating Nintendo's E3 talk, they didn't spend that much time talking about the game. The simplest answer might be that Nintendo is just trying to calm down speculation, as there might be a tease coming rather than any actual announcement.
We'll see what's in the massive Smash presentation tomorrow morning. In the meantime, check out our guides section to freshen up on all the moves and tips you'll need to deal with Terry spammers online.
