The Electronics Entertainment Expo of 2015 has kicked off in Los Angeles today, but ahead of the actual start of the expo, Nintendo has already made — and implemented — some major announcements. One of those announcements concerns its popular fighting franchise Super Smash Bros., and how it has now bled over into one of the most beloved and technical fighting game series of all-time.
Nintendo revealed during a presentation yesterday that, in addition to Lucas from Mother 3 and Roy from Fire Emblem, one other than Ryu from Capcom’s iconic game series Street Fighter has “joined the battle” on Super Smash Bros., for both Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. Recently, Nintendo invited fans from all over the world to vote for who they’d like to see implemented into the latest Smash game via DLC, and reportedly Ryu was a top choice across the planet for a character to join the popular Nintendo fighter.
In addition to the new fighters, Nintendo has also released an update that expands both free and paid additional content across the series, adding three new stages and more customization options for “Mii fighters.” Any of the paid content can be purchased for either 3DS or Wii U, or can be bought for both at a discounted rate.
When it was released in November, we felt that Super Smash Bros. for Wii U represented a new standard in the fighting franchise, with robust character and multiplayer options along with a fantastic visual look and wonderful controls and control options.
E3 is just now kicking off, so keep an eye on GeekNation for the biggest news to come out of the expo this week!
