Ryu Brings Street Fighter to Smash Bros. 4, Full Details Inside

Ryu Smash Bro Wii U, 3DS

Super Smash Bros. Wii U / 3DS has just received a host of amazing new content, the most impressive of which is arguably the inclusion of Ryu from Street Fighter.

The fireball-shooting, spin-kicking warrior brings his full suite of iconic moves to the fight, and we have the details you have been looking for.

Design

Starting off with his appearance, Super Smash Bros. Ryu looks like, well, the Ryu from virtually every Street Fighter game ever made, so there isn’t much to say.

Smash Bros Ryu colors

His alternate colors range from traditional Street Fighter 2 colors to a couple of brand new hues.

Moves

Ryu’s trademark, bread-and-butter moves came along for the ride and look as deadly as ever. In Super Smash Bros. Wii US and 3DS, pressing the ‘B’ button does his hadouken (fireball), ‘side B’ does his tatsumaki (spin kick), and ‘up B’ does his shoryuken (uppercut).

Holding down B does a focus attack, which like in Street Fighter 4, lets Ryu absorbs hits with armor during the charge animation…

Stage / Music

His stage is also a trip down memory lane and is a fusion of the rooftop Street Fighter 2 stage and the castle stage in Street Fighter 3: Third Strike. Here it is…

Ryu’s stage music is even more of a throwback than the stage itself. It’s a remix inspired by the interlude jingle from Street Fighter 2, and we love everything about it. Listen to it and let us know what you think…

I don’t know about, but Ryu looks like a lot of fun and I can’t wait to try him out. What other non-Nintendo characters do you think should be added to Super Smash Brothers? Let us know in the comments below.
