Nintendo Announces Tekken Smash Bros. Ultimate Crossover

The Tekken protagonist is the latest Smash Ultimate DLC character joining the crew.

Kazuya from Tekken is the new Smash Bros Ultimate DLC character, Nintendo announced during its E3 2021 presentation. Kazuya joins the 60+ strong roster of characters sometime this summer, with more information to come on June.

Kazuya is the protagonist in nearly every Tekken game and joins the likes of Ryu from Street Fighter and Terry Bogard from classic SNK games as a hand-to-hand melee fighter.

Series creator Masahiro Sakurai will show Kazuya in Smash on June 28 in another installment of his Smash Direct-style video series. As ever, expect to see breakdowns of Kazuya’s moveset and some strategies for how to use the new Smash DLC character to his full extent.

As for when Kazuya will release in Smash, there’s still no firm date as yet. These characters usually release soon after Sakurai shows them off, so we could see Kazuya in Smash on June 28 or not long after.

You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
