Sakurai Gives Insight on Ryu’s Smash Bros. Debut in Famitsu

In a recent column for Famitsu, Sakurai Masahiro discussed the recent release of three DLC characters for Super Smash Bros. 4: Lucas, Roy, and Street Fighter‘s Ryu. The director expressed his joy at getting the opportunity to work with Capcom’s fighter. Ryu’s transition to Smash Bros. required some tweaking to the martial artist’s original control scheme, giving players the ability to perform his special moves with the push of a single button. Hardcore fans also have the option of inputting the combo a la traditional Street Fighter, which also amplifies the power of the attack.

Sakurai also mentioned other matters, such as the online fighter’s ballot. To get all the juicy details, check out the full English translation of the article, provided by the good folks over at Source Gaming.
