Nintendo is preparing for the launch of Tekken’s Kazuya Mishima to join the roster of Smash Bros. Ultimate on June 29, 2021, as part of the Challenger Pack 10 DLC.
“With the addition of Kazuya Mishima from Tekken, yet another long-running, historic video game franchise joins the roster of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate,” said Nick Chavez, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “The new fighters introduced to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate through DLC offer players even more ways to battle it out, with additional strategies to perfect and new skills to learn.”
Kazuya is regarded as one of the most popular Tekken fighters with a moveset that typically takes advantage of a 3D space. However, in this 2D battle, Kazuya carries many of his skills over, but his Devil’s Power is what makes him a true Smash character. During fights, players can activate this power for various jumps, smash attacks, and special moves.
Additionally, a new stage is available, Mishima Dojo, along with 39 tracks from the Tekken series. Lastly, launching alongside Kazuya Mishima are new paid Mii Fighter costumes, including Shantae, Lloyd Irving, Dante, and Dragonborn.
Challenger Pack 10 is part of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Fighters Pass Vol. 2, which can be purchased for $29.99 and also includes Min Min from the ARMS game, Steve & Alex from Minecraft, Sephiroth from the Final Fantasy VII series, Pyra/Mythra from the Xenoblade Chronicles 2 game and one yet-to-be-announced fighter that will release later this year. Challenger Pack 10 can also be purchased separately for $5.99.
