It’s official: Roy is to be the third DLC fighter in Super Smash Bros. for 3DS/Wii U. This was announced at the start of a special pre-E3 Super Smash Bros. presentation today.
Even better, he (along with all the other announced DLC) is available for purchase right now. Although Sakurai warns fans to be patient with the soon-to-be-overloaded servers.
As with the Mewtwo DLC earlier in April, Roy costs 3.99 USD if purchased for a single game or 4.99 USD if purchased for both the 3DS and Wii U versions.
Similarly, a Roy Amiibo is currently planned, with further details to be announced later on.
