As I like to do with any and all rumor stories, please let me state that this is only a rumor! We can allow our eyes to widen, hopes to soar and excitement to build, and I'm certainly guilty of all of those things right now, but at the end of the day it's all hearsay until we get that hard confirmation.


Having said that, Ryu may be Shoryukening his way into Super Smash Brothers! Reddit user shinyquagsire23 has claimed to have found some intriguing audio files in the decrypted code for the latest Smash update.

These files reference both Roy, a smash veteran, and Ryu, the poster boy for the Street Fighter franchise.

After the jump, you can see a video that goes over the find as well as samples the audio clips.
If these characters do indeed make their way into the game, what will this mean for the Smash community? Street Fighter and Smash are extremely different fighters, but one has to wonder just how many SF players might wander into Smash territory as a result of Ryu's presence.

Sure, Ryu has appeared before in games outside the Street Fighter franchise and that hasn't necessarily translated to SF players following him into other universes. Still, this very well could incite a bit of cross-game experimentation and growth within the scene.
