E3 presentations don’t technically start until tomorrow, but we already have what might be some of the most interesting news from the show. Information about two new characters has already leaked, along with info on several new costumes and stages.

Super Smash Bros. - Roy Super Smash Bros. - Ryu

The two new characters are Roy from Fire Emblem and Ryu from Street Fighter, two characters that were already rumored to be coming to the game. The info comes from a patch that went live in Japan, containing info on the two characters, including their victory videos.

Along with these characters, we also get to see a little of Ryu’s stage and the Dream Land stage from Super Smash Bros 64. A few new trophies have been revealed, including one of the Inkling girl from Splatoon. Several new Mii costumes were revealed as well, including Akira and Jacky from Virtua Fighter and Heihachi from Tekken for Brawlers, Isabelle and MegaMan.EXE for Gunners, and Zero from Mega Man X for Swordfighters. Finally a few new music tracks were added to the game, including Rhythm Heaven’s Blue Birds and Monkey Watch. We also got some new pictures of Lucas which are pretty cool.

Who knows when all this content will be available for download? Although it could be as soon as tomorrow. Let’s hope anyway! What do you all think of this though? Are you happy to see Roy and Ryu get in to Smash Bros? Let us know in the comments!
