Kazuya Mishima, the iron fist of darkness, already has an arrival date in Smash.
Following a recent live broadcast from Masahiro Sakurai, the author of the gaming icon saga showcased the skills of one of Tekken’s star characters.
The main difference that this incarnation will have compared to its original version is the jump from its usual 3D space to fight in a 2D environment. To justify air strikes that are part of the Smash gameplay, the demonic side of the warrior will be appealed to.
Using his transformation to Devil, Kazuya fits into a combat system substantially different from his original series. Something that players who have already purchased the Fighters Pass Vol. 2 that has been present in the latest releases of the series will be able to verify.
Kazuya is one of the archetypal protagonists of fighting games who, unlike characters like Ryu or Kyo Kusanagi, has aged and has become an antagonist within the series.
One of the elements that made him an unusual character among the protagonists of fighting games, by becoming a star antagonist and a persistent presence in his desire to have power and be the strongest warrior.
What is clear is that Nintendo, and Masahiro Sakurai in particular, gives him the honor of considering Kazuya Mishima and the Tekken series as a work worthy of being part of the unofficial hall of fame that has been Super Smash Bros Ultimate since. its premiere.
Uniting characters from Microsoft, Capcom, Square Enix, SNK, Atlus and Bandai Namco with the heroes of Nintendo, it is a right merit that goes to one of the longest-lived and remarkable fighting games that have lived throughout the generations. of videogames.
