Available separately for £5.39/5.99€ or as part of Fighter Pass 2, Kazuya has been a long time coming — Bandai Namco has co-developed the Smash Bros. series since Smash 3DS/Wii U, so a Tekken rep seemed like a no-brainer.
His moveset has been tweaked to fit Smash Ultimate’s style of gameplay, though he still retains most of his attacks from Tekken. The signature Mishima-style 10 hit combo is there (only requiring one button this time), and he has a few extra tilt attacks compared to other characters.
Despite Ultimate being a platform fighter, it’s managed to build up a solid roster of traditional fighting game characters.
Director Masahiro Sakurai mentioned during the presentation that it’ll be a while before the final DLC character is ready — though they’ll still be released by the end of 2021.
