Tekken’s Kazuya Mishima joins Super Smash Bros Ultimate

A new character has been announced for Super Smash Bros Ultimate and it is none other than the legendary Kazuya Mishima from the beloved Tekken franchise. The character will join the other previously released DLC characters included within the latest Fighter Pass. You will be able to watch a showcase showing more gameplay and how the characters move sets change with Mr. Sakurai on 26th June.

    1. “Low”
      What kind of expectations are you setting? Were you expecting Wacky Wonky from the obscure western platformer and no one else? It’s a third party character from an iconic franchise with a cool moveset, but nope you aren’t that familiar with the character so you’re extremely disappointed even though you somehow had yourself ready for ‘low’ expectations and that’s clearly a lie.. not everything has to go your way.

      1. You have some misconceptions about me so let me correct you. One of the things I’ve enjoyed about Smash ever since the first game is that it takes video game characters from non-fighting genres and adapts them into a fighting genre game. It was especially cool when it was characters that you never got to actually play in their games like Fox, Ganondorf, Bowser, etc.

        So that coupled with the fact that I’ve been more of a Soul Caliber fan vs a Tekken fan makes me disappointed to see this. It’s just… not exciting for me. I’m sure it’s exciting for some people, but yeah… not so much for me. The only way I might get excited is if the Tekken stage has some unique mechanic to it similar to the King of Fighters stage.

        We on the same page now?

  1. This reveal was pretty meh. I guess it’s nice that Tekken got some representation since it’s also a classic fighting game but there’s far more candidates with unique fighting styles. We already have Ryu, Ken, & Terry, another martial artist is honestly unecessary. But different strokes for different folks so I’m happy for everyone who wanted a Tekken rep.

  2. “Another fist fighter!” sorry, I had to :P

    But yeah, this fighter saved me $6 USD.

  3. I was really happy about Terry’s inclusion, but this was quite lackluster for me. But I know a lot of people that wanted both Mortal Kombat and Tekken in after Terry and Ryu/Ken, so glad to see those people happy.

  4. I hate big the cat on sonic and I hate Avery on pokemon shield but Kazuya from Tekken is great.

  5. I just feel like they don’t need to pull fighters from other fighting games.. Ryu, Ken were fine since they’re Iconic, Terry was an okay addition, just felt like they were curating him. but his style is different enough that I’m cool with it. This guy just seems like a mash up of those 3. The fun of smash bros is to see all the well known characters that didnt have conventional fights duke it out

    He looks like a decent fighter… because he literally is. At this point they’re just padding the roster with existing fighters instead of making people into fighters, with the exception of Steve. It doesnt matter to me that there are too many sword fighters. The problem is that they just add seemingly random characters from the same or similar titles, with same or similar movesets.

    Smash is a game where characters like Rayman and Crash Bandicoot would be expected to be seen in. Not Tekken and Street fighter, with all due respect. Instead of adding characters like Byleth and Chrom they could have put Ghirahim and/or Demise. Both sword fighters with different fighting style. Byleth probably could stay since Chrom is more of a copy.

    They could have even put Dillon the armadillo in, he may not be popular but he’s on Nintendo Consoles and has a design that would work for smash but they made him an assist trophy instead?? There are a ton of B and C list characters they could add, as well as A list. but they’re choosing A list characters from other games and it just gets frustrating because they’re either adding characters that are clearly from fighting games that people would choose because they know said character is bad ass in their own game, or characters that no one would expect. When the in-between contains characters we would like to see are ignored or are assist trophies. They could have easily added a character from kid icarus uprising. Magus, Phosphora, a human sized hades or medusa, instead of including f**king DARK PIT… REALLY??

  6. This is a fantastic addition, Tekken has been in my life since I was around 13 and with Bandai Namco working so hard on Smash Bros, it’s about time they got another fighter from their catalog.
    And of course, there are people already complaining about this being another generic fighting game character, if you want to believe that Tekken plays like King of Fighters and Street Fighter then my dood, go play a Tekken game, they are the same only in the sense that they are under the same genre.
    Also, name me a fighting game character that transforms into a devil form that’s already in Smash, ah wait, there isn’t.
