A Short F.A.Q. for the last few D.A.Y.S.

There’s been an influx of new information over the past few days. In particular, Sakurai has released two new books, and Sakurai’s latest Famitsu article: Ryu, Roy and Lucas join the Battle! which was translated by Soma.  With this, I’ve seen some misinformation about both of these topics, so I figured I would address them head on.

Ryu, Roy and Lucas have finally joined the battle! Many fans were surprised to see all three characters released at the same time.

Today, I’m here to crush those dreams, and offer a much more realistic view of Smash DLC. I’m so sorry.

“The Act of Balancing” Sakurai’s Famitsu Column vol. 480

Today, Source Gaming is bringing you the full translation of Sakurai’s latest Famitsu column, “The Act of Balancing”.
