Super Smash Bros. Wii U and 3DS have received two new fighters – Fire Emblem’s Roy and Street Fighter’s Ryu!
Roy’s inclusion in the fourth Smash Bros. game doesn’t come as a surprise, seeing that he was a playable character in Smash Bros. Melee
on the GameCube. Ryu entering the fray, on the other hand, is a bit unexpected.

, Roy was a slower, heavier-hitting version of Marth. He looks a lot more distinct this time around and has the moves to go along with it.
Ryu looks like he always has and comes to battle with his iconic repertoire of moves -- Hadouken (fireball), Shoryuken (dragon punch) and Tatsumaki Senpuukyaku (jumping spin kick). As was the case with Mega Man, Metal Gear
's Solid Snake and Sonic the Hedgehog, it’s almost unreal seeing him in a Super Smash Bros. game
Thank you, Nintendo and Capcom, for finally allowing us to beat up Mario and Pikachu with Ryu. An already great fighting game has just gotten better...
