Kazuya Mishima from Bandai Namco's Tekken series was announced earlier today for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Fighters Pass Vol. 2 during Nintendo's E3 2021 presentation. The "Mr. Sakurai Presents Kazuya" presentation is scheduled to air on June 28, 2021 at 7:00 a.m. PT / 10 a.m. ET.

During the trailer, Kazuya is seen dropping many Super Smash Bros. Ultimate characters off a cliff and into a volcano. Ganondorf was the first to fall.

Masahiro Sakurai briefly made an appearance during the Nintendo Direct to showcase some of Kazuya's moves. Just like with Ryu, Ken and Terry Bogard, Kazuya appears to have access to a ton of different attacks, which is typical of fighting game characters in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Kazuya even appears to have access to his iconic Mist Step, which is capable of phasing through projectiles just like in Street Fighter X Tekken. It looks like Kazuya will be able to perform certain follow ups after using his Mist Step.

We even get a glimpse of a 10-hit combo that looks to be extremely damaging. The 10-hit sequence also looks to be capable of knocking out opponents as Kazuya is seen taking one of Captain Falcon's stocks with the series of attacks.

Also similar to Ryu, Ken and Terry Bogard, Kazuya appears to have an auto-turnaround mechanic in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. This will make it so that he's always facing his opponent in 1v1 matches.

For certain attacks, Kazuya is seen transforming into Devil Kazuya. It's currently unknown if certain attacks just simply uses this form for animations or if there is some hidden mechanic tied to this transformation.

Although Heihachi Mishima, Kazuya's father, doesn't participate in the battle, he makes a cameo appearance in the form of a background stage element on the Tekken stage.
