Jesus.. people no need to get in a tizzy. I don't follow the ins and outs of Smash on a hardcore level, I just remember hearing when people said they wanted Mewtwo (this was before he came out), that you already had Lucario and the Mewtwo fans were just being babies.
Yeah, it's been a commonly circulated rumor since Brawl's release, likely started by people who's first Smash was Brawl and thought Lucario "replaced" Mewtwo.

Gadzooks man!

Very happy for Roy and Ryu fans who lost all hope with the inclusion of Mega Man and Lucina. It must feel oh so satisfying.

If someone told me two years ago we would have at least 5 new or returning characters who's names started with the leter R but none of them were Ridley I would have probably laughed at them. Rosalina, Roy Koopa, Robin, Ryu, Roy.

And since Cloud appears in some of the Kingdom Hearts spin-offs for the GBA and DS, as well as the Theatrhythm games, he could be put in without technically violating the "must have appeared on a Nintendo platform" rule.
Miku too pls :3c

I'm looking forward for Smash Presentation tomorrow to see more things in action.

Roy, Ryu, Lucas and two stages look fantastic! :D

Not GAF, lol
Shadow Ball and Aura Sphere aren't even similar at all, despite both being charging moves. Like comparing them to Samus' charge.

Also Aura Sphere and Shadow Ball are both signature moves of Lucario and Mewtwo, so obviously both would have those moves.

Man, Ryu and Roy. Can't imagine two characters I'd have liked less.

I remember playing Street Fighter 2 in an arcade WAY back when as a kid. Took an instant dislike to it then, and have disliked every version I've played since. And even inside of the Street Fighter world Ryu is bland as hell. I get that it's a crazy popular series, so most people will be excited, but for me? Eh...

What is the purpose of Roy? We have Marth, we have Lucina, we have the 'true Roy' with the wicked pink shades...

Mewtwo and Lucas are great though. Can't win 'em all, I guess, but Ice Climbers needed to be here by now. Screw the 3DS if it can't manage them.

Looks like we have two Roys now. Not that I'm complaining, but do you think the announcer would call the name differently?

Plus the fan vote.
And that would be PATHETIC. I won't hold my breath with the fan vote, probably rigged anyway.
Please, no Wolf. Falco and Fox is enough. Let's get some more newcomer goodness
There's no way in hell there's only five, the character ballot hasn't even ended.
I'm basing this on Pre-Smash Ballot. I have no idea how that's going to go.

I only still say that based on the 3DS CSS. I know, brought it up a while back but I still think this. Plus, the fact that none of them have custom moves more than likely speed the development process up.

Well technically, as of Gen V Mewtwo's signature move is Psystrike. But that's his final smash so whatever.

But Falco and Fox aren't Wolf.
I don't disagree with the newcomer sentiment. But Wolf is a great, fun, character and I miss him very much. Especially since Falco lost all his personality with his new (old) VA in Smash 4.
I don't disagree that Wolf is fun. I'd rather have him over ANY FE character, enough sword users. But I want them to try and keep the roster as diverse as possible.

If they bring back Wolf, I hope they continue the newcomer and veteran thing we have with Roy and Ryu.

Maybe matching consonants again too!

Wolf, Wonder Red

Sakurai and Co. have been at least working on

Mewtwo
Lucas
Roy
Ryu

since I'm guessing November.

So if my original thought of ONLY 5 DLC characters is true, I'm thinking Wolf should be the last one.

2 Melee Vets, 2 Brawl Vets, 1 Newcomer.
I don't think is true at all. You're forgetting the Fighter Ballot. There will be at LEAST 2 characters from that, I think.

we saw his shield breaker and that isn't it.
Shield breaker has way more particles and way shown earlier in the video.
IIRC, particles only appear if you charge it a bit first, when uncharged it looked like a regular slash. The motion is still similar so I still think it could be his Shield Breaker. Either way, glad to see him back. His design is great and some of his alts are from other FE characters too! (I can spot Zihark from FE9-10 at least, can't put my finger on the rest tho)

I hope they all realize just how great Ryu could be from a pure game play diversity perspective. Maybe he can cancel moves or do EXs. That makes me so hyped!


I know what that is in Street Fighter: crouching short kick -> crouching forward kick -> Tatsumaki. But what is it in Smash? A 2-part down tilt? A down tilt chained into down smash?

Plus his voice samples have multiple versions of his special moves, including Shinku Hadouken and Shakunetsu Hadouken. He doesn't have custom moves, so how exactly are those variations supposed to work? Extra command inputs? Meter mechanics?

Fun to speculate.

Glad to see more third party inclusions are still a possibility, though I can't say I'm very excited for either character. Come on Dixie Kong, I've been waiting for ages!
