Street Fighter's Ryu joins the Super Smash Bros. squad

New, 13 comments

Ryu from Street Fighter and Roy from Fire Emblem are officially coming to the Super Smash Bros. roster, Nintendo announced this morning. Along with Lucas from Mother 3, the characters are available to download now on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS.

Squad goals

Nintendo's pre-E3 announcement confirms rumors that have been circulating since April. Super Smash Bros. will also get new Mii Fighter costumes from games like Virtua Fighter, Tekken, and Animal Crossing. The Dreamland stage from the original Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 64 will also return with a few tweaks.

We thought the next Super Smash Bros. would be a love letter to video games, and it's looking like that's very much the case. Roy and Lucas are available for $3.99 on Wii U or Nintendo 3DS, or $4.99 for both game versions. Ryu comes with the Suzaku Castle stage from Street Fighter, is available for $5.99 on either system, or for $6.99 for both.
