I was thinking that if the Shadow Clone powerups were ever added, how exactly would that work with the Sword Extension? To me it would look a huge clusterfuck having Ryu with two clones running around and each one have the Sword Extension. So to solve this I figured to make Ken a separate character. Here's how they would play differently: KEN: Gameplay based on NG1 & NG2 DEFAULT SKIN: Red NG1 Ryu POWERUPS: Scroll, Invincibility Ninpo, Shuriken, Windmill Shuriken, Upward Ninpo, Jump Slash, Hourglass, Shadow Clones ABILITIES: Faster Sword Slash (like Haggle Man), Double Jump, Cling to walls, but can't climb them. ALTERNATE SKIN: Ryu?/Ryu Clone RYU: Gameplay based on NG2 & NG3 DEFAULT SKIN: NG3 Ryu (with scarf) POWERUPS: Scroll, Invincibility Ninpo, Shuriken, Windmill Shuriken, Upward Ninpo, Downward Ninpo, Sword Extension, Vacuum Wave ABILITIES: Same abilities currently in SMBC ALTERNATE SKIN: NG1 Ryu So this will allow for many more powerups and gameplay differences found between the three games and finally have NG3 Ryu and soundtrack in the mix.
