Kazuya Mishima’s Super Smash debut is much closer than you think…
As previously reported, Kazuya Mishima was revealed as the penultimate Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC character at E3, 2021.
Following his announcement, his precise release date has been shrouded in mystery.
However, as part of today’s Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Nintendo Direct, Nintendo has announced an official release date for the game’s latest DLC character. They have revealed that he will be joining the roster as soon as tomorrow, June 29th. With Kazuya’s introduction comes a new stage, Mishima Dojo (the iconic Tekken map). It is worth noting that this is different from your typical Smash map. Nintendo state, “the dojo is closed off in all directions, but its walls and ceiling can be broken with strong attacks, turning the stage into dangerous terrain.” Nintendo has likely tried to incorporate destructible boundaries in the same way that Tekken uses in several of its maps. I am interested to see how they have translated this into Smash Ultimate. Similarly, it will also be an Omega stage (i.e. no platforms). It seems it will require a change of tactics for Smash players.
I am curious to see how it is received by the community. All of us fans are eagerly waiting for Kazuya’s arrival, with some fans already speculating what they think his victory scene should be. Hopefully, Kazuya’s debut will be as iconic as we think it will be.
