Posted on June 14, 2015 by Rae Michelle Richards

This morning’s Super Smash Bros livestream unveiled three brand new characters for Nintendo’s latest brawler, a number of new stages and more. Ryu the iconic character from the Street Fighter franchise joins Smash as a downloadable character alongside returning roster member Roy from the Fire Emblem series and the previously announced Lucas.

Probably the best news of all is that all three characters are now available on the 3DS / WiiU Eshop for less than five dollars USD.

Although not released today Sakurai did confirm that classic stages from the original Super Smash Bros like Hyrule Castle are currently in production. If you want a further nostalgia trip you can snag the Dreamland stage for $1.99.
