Footage of Ryu and Roy Leaked for Super Smash Bros for Wii U!

Take this with a big grain of salt, since it’s been posted by a relative unknown on Youtube and not even slightly confirmed by Nintendo or co, but we may have now have our first footage of Ryu and Roy as extra playable characters.

Here are the videos:

Ryu (Street Fighter series)

Roy (Fire Emblem series)

In case they get removed for whatever reason, we have also backed them up here on our website:

And our channel:

Ryu Video (our Youtube channel)

So where did this all come from? Well apparently, a patch for the Japanese version was released earlier, and data mining said patch gave us the ability to use the characters above.  It also apparently gave us information about the inclusion of Dream Land 64 from the original game, an Inkling trophy, a stage based on Ryu’s home stage in the Street Fighter series and a bevvy of other stuff that has also been found.

So what do we think about this all?

Well, we can see it being real.  The videos above do look real enough, with the production quality being good enough that it’s not an obvious fake.And the stuff supposedly included would make sense.But let’s class this as a rumour til more information comes in. What do you think about Ryu and Roy’s inclusions in the new Super Smash Bros game?Sources:

[QUOTE="Dark Young Link, post: 1100, member: 7"]I would've rather have a Pegasus Knight or whatever class Fredrick was. I'm kind of sad too. As for Ryu, I could care less, but hey nothing wrong with a little Capcom love. I'm hoping they'll be revealing more characters in the direct.[/QUOTE] Mounted units wouldn't work properly because they require the mount, and I can't help but feel that it'd be really hard to balance, particularly with sizing constraints (if someone gets hit, does the mount go with them?  If not, how does it react?  It'd be more complex than the Ice Climbers… Read more »

[QUOTE="Link 70222, post: 1098, member: 3"]Why would he say Roy Jr… when there's no Roy Sr.? He says Roy, they will probably just reuse the sound clip for both characters.[/QUOTE]

Wait, it's Morton Jr, isn't it? I mixed up which Koopa was "Jr".

When the announcer announces the winner, or you select this character: http://static.giantbomb.com/uploads/original/1/17172/1191029-roy_1.jpg does he say "Roy" or "Roy Junior"?

If the latter, that'll work, if not, how will it work? "The winner is….. Roy….. the other one….. er….. the Street Fighter guy….."?

Ryu I don't really care one way or the other, but Roy I'm a bit unhappy with…not because Fire Emblem gets more places (love the series) but because it means 3/5 of the characters are clones of each other.  I would've much rather seen a manakete (dragonkin) or someone who isn't a Lord get in (Marth, Roy, and Lucina are all Lord class in the games)…if they wanted another sword character why not grab a Swordmaster or Hero class?  Both of those function very differently from the standard Lord class and would've allowed for some interesting changes…fast, light attacks, dodging… Read more »
