Welp, Tekken finally got itself a roster spot in the biggest crossover fighter of all time!
The ruthless Kazuya Mishima will now step into the ring to do battle with some of his fighting game peers and plenty of Nintendo icons. Kazuya’s reveal trailer grabbed everyone’s attention thanks to its shocking display of his massive moveset that utilizes most of his Tekken repertoire and its hilarious cliff-dropping routine with a host of memorable characters. We’re pretty sure longtime Tekken director Katsuhiro Harada twisted Super Smash Bros.’ beloved director Masahiro Sakurai to make this happen. And we’re pretty pleased with the end result of that exciting request. Now there’s just one more character left to add from the second Fighters Pass. And sadly, that final roster entrant will be the very last member of the game. If there’s one thing we know about Sakurai, it’s that he always goes out of his way to shock Smash’s massive fanbase with a major character reveal.
We hope the still unannounced final character sends Smash Ultimate out with a bang. If any one of the following five characters gets unveiled for that final roster spot, we’d be ever so thankful to King Sakurai.
