Trying to bring in Tekken's playstyle into the platform fighter is a daunting task, but it seems Sakurai has managed to keep Kazuya's essence intact, as he boasts an immense amount of tools to deal with Ultimate's vastly different pace.
On top of this, he gave fans an exact date in which they can expect to get their hands on the DLC character. Let's break it all down.
Kazuya in Smash Ultimate - Release date and time
Fans won't have to wait too long to get Kazuya Mishima in Smash Ultimate, as Sakurai revealed that he'll be available this upcoming 29th June, just a day after the presentation.
There wasn't an exact time set in stone, however, so keep your eyes peeled during the day to see when Kazuya drops and brace yourself for any possible connection errors due to the number of players trying to buy the DLC.
Kazuya in Smash Ultimate - Cost
As per usual, players that wish to acquire the DLC will have to fork out $5.99 or the equivalent depending on your region. On top of Kazuya, you'll receive the Mishima Dojo stage and 39 tracks from the Tekken series.
Alternatively, players who purchased the Fighters Pass Vol 2. valued at .99 will just have to wait until Kazuya becomes available to download.
Kazuya in Smash Ultimate - All moves
Kazuya is a very unique character to Smash Ultimate, as he has an impressive amount of moves, both normal and special ones.
In true Tekken fashion and despite Smash Ultimate not being a 3D fighter, players can move their sticks in eight different directions to execute a normal move, on top of this, different timings will net you a wide variety of moves.
We recommend you check out Sakurai's breakdown as it explains every single one in painstaking detail.
