Confirming the Reddit leaks, Roy from Fire Emblem and Ryu from Street Fighter have been confirmed as upcoming DLC for Super Smash Bros. Roy will largely control like he did in Melee with stronger close range attacks when compared to Marth. Ryu will control like no other smash fighter with varying attack strength based on how long you hold the attack button, a easy Smash Bros style specials and a stronger Street Fighter style special. This means that inputing + will produce a Hadouken, just like in Street Fighter II. This skill and combo based character will no doubt be popular for tournament players and fans of the Street Fighter series. Ryu will launch with an included Street Fighter stage, Suzaku Castle for 5.99 for Wii U or 3DS and 6.99 as a bundle for both. Roy will be released by himself for 3.99 for Wii U or 3DS and 4.99 as a bundle. Available Now!
