Tekken's own Kazuya Mishima is the next big contender joining Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Entering the battle by way of Fighters Pass vol. 2, fans just can't get enough of the 3D fighting game vet in Smash.

With his official reveal, the Smash Bros. Ultimate website shared a handful of awesome screenshots that give us another look at the powerful warrior. In addition to this, Smash Bros. series creator Masahiro Sakurai also posted a special photo on Twitter that provides fans with a closer glimpse at fellow Tekken fighter Heihachi as he cameos in the new stage.

This batch of images features one of the best photos we've ever seen taken for the game. The classic fighting game representatives โ€” Ryu, Ken, Terry Bogard, and Kazuya โ€” all pose together in a scene that sees the former three all going after the newcomer.

We're also given more opportunity to see Kazuya's Devil form. From what we can gather, it looks as though this form might give him access to buffed up versions of his attacks (essentially EX moves).

What's really a treat, though, is the new screenshot of Heihachi that Sakurai put out. As seen in the trailer, Kazuya's father makes a cameo appearance in the new Tekken stage โ€” which appears to be modeled after the Mishima Dojo backdrop found in Tekken 7.

Heihachi sits in front of the giant statue in a state of calm concentration. Thanks to the trailer, we know that the fighting veteran will also be quite active in the background and will cheer as the fight ensues.

We don't have an official release date for Kazuya in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate just yet, but we can expect to see more of him on June 28, 2021, when Sakurai himself hosts the character breakdown presentation.
