    If those are fake they are pretty good fakes.

    Roy I'm happy he's back and I know a lot of fans are going to like Ryu though I'm not as fussed about him.

    Atrocious. Sakurai said "We'll never include characters from fighting games because they bring nothing to the table, they're already in a fighting game and that's not what Smash is about" and you can clearly see Ryu has all his moves unchanged. Way to backpedal man...

    obviously fake... they'd show the characters with "A New Challanger approaches" and they'd be posted by nintendo...
    but I'd love if they made it into new smash.

    It's not fake. It's leaked footage, that's why it wasn't posted by Nintendo.

    Maybe Ryu and Roy will appear as DLC characters, but the video itself is most likely fake

    Nintendo will most likely make a proper video at least for Ryu. Heck, they dedicated a video to Lucas which is a returning character.

    Well, I tried to not spoil it in the other thread, but I forgot, this is the internet. Lol
    Now Capcom got 2 characters. Is Tails next, so we can have two Sega characters?

    I hope you''re right. These two would be such a waste of space.

    Fire Emblem is a great series - but at this rate we will soon call this game Fire Bros. !

    This isn't an introduction video. This is a leaked video of the short montage you get after you beat the Classic Mode with said character.

    He did say that and he may have changed his mind. To be fair tho, Little Mac and this Ryu. May just be an exception.

    I was just thinking it was real, but too short for the actually reveal.

    So we got Mewtwo back, we got Lucas back, and we got Roy back. Three old characters. Now we're getting Ryu, who will without a doubt have a very plain moveset like Little Mac.

    So far, not too thrilled about the game's DLC. So many possibilities going to waste.

    Without seeing the videos, I did a

    I hope it's true, and I'll stay positive for it. Only if I play the characters and they turn out to suck, that I'll be negative. Roy is the surprising part if it's true. I preferred him over Marth on Melee and thought of Ike as a bit of a replacement for the more power-oriented FE swordsman.

    I wonder if the Chrous Men from the leaked list that was floating around a few months ago is going to be real. If Nintendo releases Rhythm Tengoku Plus in the west, I think it would make sense.

    Roy was my main character in Melee but I'm not too sure about Ryu. Sure he's recognisable but I won't be rushing out to buy the DLC on day one.

    Meh. Roy was a terrible unit in his game, and a boring character, so I'll never really care if he's in smash or not. Besides, I already have Lucina. The only good thing I can truly think of coming from this is that maybe Nintendo will surprise-localize Binding Blade and we can finally officially play it in English.

    Ryu, well, I never played Street Fighter so I don't much care about him either.
