Nintendo kicked off its E3 Direct to announce the latest DLC character coming to Super Smash Bros Ultimate, and it’s a huge win for Tekken fans.
Get ready fighting fans, Kazuya Mishima will be added to the Smash Bros Ultimate roster, making him the fifth and penultimate character to appear as part of the Fighters Pass vol 2 DLC pack.
A brief gameplay clip was shown during the event, with Kazuya bringing classic hand to hand combat moves such as Tsunami Kick, Dragon Uppercut and Crouch Jab. Fighters who are accustomed to using bare knuckle brawlers like Ryu and Terry Bogard will no doubt feel right at home with Kazuya’s moveset.
As is usually the case with DLC fighters, Kazuya will also come with an additional level, this time a yet-unnamed dojo that features regular appearances from classic Tekken characters.
Smash Bros director Masahiro Sakurai announced that an extended look at Kazuya will be scheduled for June 28, 2pm BST/7am PT.
