Take a look at the two's intro gameplay trailers.
Meanwhile, Ryu's alternate color palettes are his color palettes from the Street Fighter II games. What makes him different from the rest of the characters is that his special attacks can be done in two ways: first is by using the game's standard command input for special attacks; the second is by doing the Street Fighter-esque controller motion for each respective special move. When done this way, the special attacks will deal greater damage than when they are performed with the basic button presses.
That means the ↓ ↘ → + special attack button version of the Hadouken is literally down-right fierce!
Another fact that separates Ryu apart from all the rest is that he has two Final Smash attacks: his trademark projectile Shinkuu Hadouken and his hard-hitting Shin Shouryuuken. (I thought his Shinkuu Hadouken Final Smash would be similar to its Marvel vs. Capcom version, though.)
Both characters are now available for purchase along with Earthbound's Lucas. Roy is priced at $3.99 for either the Wii or the 3DS, or $4.99 for both systems.
Bundled with Ryu is his trademark stage Suzaku Castle, priced at $5.99 for either platform or $6.99 for both.

Also, Ryu has been confirmed as a returning character in the upcoming tri-brand crossover strategy RPG Project X Zone 2.
So yeah, this smashing news so far has been more about Ryu and less about Roy.
