Ryu (Street Fighter) and Roy (Fire Emblem) leaked for Super Smash Bros.

Street Fighter’s Ryu and Fire Emblem’s Roy have been rumoured for Super Smash Bros. for quite a while but after newly leaked videos of both the characters in-game came out, we can say the rumours are pretty much true.

Two separate videos, viewable below, show off the two new characters headed to Super Smash Bros. in a future update:

The recent leak comes from the newest update for the game, ver. 1.0.8, which released in Japan earlier than usual. The update brings a trophy based on Splatoon and new stages including Dreamworld 64.

Nintendo has announced a livestream for this Sunday where they will talk about new content headed for both Wii U and 3DS versions of Super Smash Bros. Chances are we’ll get an official announcement for Roy and Ryu on the livestream.
