TEKKEN’s Kazuya Mishima seeks vengeance in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Nintendo /

Nintendo has released the next fighter coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and this one caught me by surprise. TEKKEN’s Kazuya Mishima is set to joint he roster on Tuesday, June 29.

Kazuya Mishima is part of the Challenger Pack 10 DLC and will come with a new stage (Mishima Dojo) and selection of music from the TEKKEN franchise. Check out the fighter’s moveset in the lengthy video below hosted by Director Masahiro Sakurai.

As you can see, Kazuya’s main attacks are similar to his fighting moves in TEKKEN; however, he relies on his Devil’s Power for his midair jumps, smash attacks and special moves. Similar to what we’ve seen in the latest TEKKEN games, Kazuya can transform into the powerful demon and activate his Devil’s Power for an expanded moveset.

As for the stage, Mishima Dojo is closed off in all directions but the walls and ceiling can be broken with strong attacks, transforming the stage. What makes this one of the more intriguing stages in the game is that there are no floating platforms. The lack of verticality will almost certainly require some unique strategies when fighting on this stage.

Kazuya Mishima is one of the most recognizable characters form the TEKKEN series and looks like he’ll be able to hold his own in the SSBU battlefield. He joins Min Min from ARMS, Steve & Alex from Minecraft, Sephiroth from the Final Fantasy series and Pyra/Martha from Xenoblade Chronicles 2 as the fifth DLC character to be featured in the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Fighters Pass Vol. 2. There’s still one more yet-to-be-announced fighter that will release later this year as part of the bundle. Who will it be?

The Fighters Pass Vol. 2 can be purchased for $29.99, or you can purchase the Challenger Pack 10 DLC on its own for $5.99. The Challenger Pack 10 includes Kazuya, his Mishima Dojo (which is the dojo specifically of Kazuya’s father Heihachi), and access to 39 tracks from the TEKKEN series.
