Kazuya Mishima is coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Nintendo announced Tuesday during its E3 Direct broadcast.

Kazuya Mishima Coming to Smash Ultimate

The Tekken legend joins with a huge variety of moves cribbed from his appearances in the Tekken series. He joins the game alongside his father, Heihachi Mishima, in the Third Party DLC pack.

"This feels like Tekken!" said Super Smash Bros. creator Masahiro Sakurai during the reveal. Sakurai will host a more detailed breakdown of the new character's abilities and nuances on June 28, starting at 10 a.m. ET.

Sakurai has previously said this next round of DLC characters would be the last pack of new fighters for Ultimate, allowing him to move on to other projects. Sakurai recently dispelled rumors that he planned to retire from game development, instead saying he planned to end the Famitsu column he has written consistently for 18 years.
