Ryu is one of the most recognizable characters in gaming. Smash Bros. is currently one of the biggest fighting games out at the moment. So, naturally, the two could coexist, right? Youtube user, “The Geek Critique” seems to think so.
But not for the reasons I stated above. According to him, decrypted files were found in the latest 3DS patch for Smash Bros. This latest patch adds “new functionality for purchasing DLC.” Within that patch, they found hidden files referencing EarthBound’s Lucas, Fire Emblem’s Roy and Street Fighter’s Ryu.
Oh, but it gets better! A couple of audio files were also found that further hints to Ryu coming. Also found was a victory theme and the theme music for Ryu’s stage from Street Fighter 2. The short video below showcases those very sounds. Get excited!
I could totally see Ryu fitting in the game. He’s got a projectile move and his Dragon punch would be his stage recovery!
