    Well we already know that
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    so im hoping that aside from that, we also get a bundle announcement to get all the DLC characters together instead of paying for each one seperately.

    The best part about this presentation was the Youtube function.
    Understandable why they made this livestream prior to E3 and not during E3

    Ryu looks ridiculously overpowered with way too many options and inputs. I know they're trying to remain faithful to his game series but its completely changed the simple dynamic of smash bros and i could see him destroying pretty much everyone.

    I'm hyped for more N64 stages. I hope Peach's Castle and Hyrule Castle are also coming to the 3DS version... Sakurai didn't clarify that.

    That's what they said about little Mac, rosalina and villager. Who all introduced new mechanics.

    Maybe this means something for SSB5. More inputs and options.

    Kinda glad this wasn't announced at the E3's Nintendo Direct but it's a nice heads up that it's available to buy today.

    Would be nice to have the DLC pack to buy them all at once.

    I guess so, but each of the characters you mentioned have a negative aspect to them too. Mac has his terrible recovery, Rosalina is useless without luma and Villiager is very much a zoner. Ryu doesnt seem to have something that makes up for all the positive stuff. What i see initially is a vertical/horizontal recovery. A strong KO punch attack (using original inputs), fireball range variation and speed. mix ups on normal attacks making him hard to predict.

    I guess we'll see *Goes to Eshop to check when i can download them*

    So... two clone characters (inb4 Competitive Smashers say that Lucas and Roy totally don't play like Ness and Marth with minor differences or some nonsense to that effect) some random Mii outfits (aka TF2 hats), one original character and one original map. Woo-hoo! Milkin' that cow, for all it's worth! ;O;

    Great! Now all I need is at least one of the Ice Climbers. hehe

    edit: I just finished watching the smash direct and holy awesome! That's a lot of content right there. hahaha. I wonder if Capcom paid them or what especially the, "Ryu received a special development attention" thing. :)
