UPDATE 6/13/15: A new round of leaks has produced new information. For the readers who wish to remain in the dark until the video presentation tomorrow, this is the best time to stop reading.

New information posted up on both Reddit and YouTube have more or less confirmed that Ryu and Roy respectively will be in the game. Found in the game’s files are two short videos for Classic mode completion: one depicted Ryu and the other was made for Roy’s completion. This was posted with other information that can be found from the thread on the Games subreddit confirming some of the new Mii Fighter costumes that will be available for purchase.
In addition, a new stage for the Street Fighter series is coming to Super Smash Bros. There are also rumors of the return of the Dreamland 64 stage; however these are presently unconfirmed.

Presently, there is no indication of whether both characters or the new costumes will be announced at the video presentation; however, it is very likely these announcements will be made tomorrow, if not in the near future.

Despite no other mention of any other updates, there are a lot of rumors currently abuzz about potential new character announcements that are growing stronger with each passing day. At the center of these rumors is a post on Reddit regarding the decrypted files from the game’s most recent update.
