Kazuya Mishima moveset in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Tekken's Kazuya Mishima is coming to Smash Ultimate. Here's how to master his moves!

Kazuya Mishima, of Tekken, is the latest fighter coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. He's a fighter with high attack power that's great at making comebacks, even if he's losing at actually landing attacks. That said, he has limited reach, and lower attack speed than some other characters. Like Bowser, he has continuous super armor -- though not as much as the Mushroom Kingdom villain.
