Today’s Nintendo Direct kicked off with the announcement of a new Super Smash Bros. fighter. Kazuya Mishima of Tekken fame is making his way into the game, and he’s got a volcano big enough to toss all of his victims into.
Kazuya is one of Tekken’s most popular and longest tenured characters, appearing in most of the mainline entries. His moveset appears largely identical to his Tekken arsenal but has been translated to fit the style of Smash, of course. The reveal trailer also showed off his ability to transform into his powerful devil form. You can watch the trailer in the embedded tweet below.

On June 28 at 9 a.m. PT, Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai will host a deep dive presentation breaking down Kazuya’s moveset. That’s likely when we’ll find out the date that Kazuya will join the game.
What do you think of Kazuya’s addition to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate? Let us know in the comments!
