Following a recent leak, Nintendo has officially released Ryu, Roy and Lucas as additional DLC characters for Super Smash Bros., and also confirmed how it will handle pricing options in a 20 minute presentation earlier today.
Roy and Lucas cost $3.99 for an individual character, but those who want both the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U version can snag them up for both console at $4.99. Likewise, Ryu is a bit more expensive $5.99 on one console with this Suzaku Castle stage or $6.99 for both the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS versions.
Speaking of Ryu, Nintendo also has unveiled his fighting moves, and yes, our dragon fisted hero can use classic Street Fighter inputs to pull off his attacks. Roll forward punch for Hadoken, roll back kick for Tatsumaki Senpukyaku. If you’ve ever controlled the character before in the past, you’ll know what to do. If not, then Super Smash Bros. will allow you to use normal inputs as well.
Nice wink to the past. Nintendo did not skimp in the least on its Capcom characters. Roy looks to control like his Super Smash Bros. Melee build with his counter attacks and his charge up fire slam. Roy is no longer our boy either since he has become a full fledged adult!
He’s gotta lose those bell-bottoms though. Ugh, it’s not the 70s anymore, Roy.
Nintendo has also doled out on the contracts for third party costumes in the DLC as well. The most recent addition adds a barrage of wonderful Mii costumes from the Virtua Fighter, Tekken, Mega Man X, and Mega Man Battle Network franchises. That Mega Man EXE set it a little too cool to be allowed to exist, and I really dig the blocky SEGA Saturn version of Akira from Virtual Fighter.

Finally, another round of amiibo characters have been announced for the Super Smash Bros. line-up. The next wave will include R.O.B., the Dunk Hunt duo, Mr. Game & Watch, and Star Fox’s brazen squad member, Falco. These four characters will also be joined by a Mii sword fighter, brawler, and gunner.
Excellent news from Nintendo, and E3 hasn’t even begun yet! What else is it going to show off? Check out the whole Super Smash Bros. presentation below.
