Nintendo Switch "Super Smash Bros.
The new fighter " Kazuya " aka " Kazuya Mishima " from Namco Bandai's "Tekken" series was announced at the "Nintendo Direct | E3 2021" and will be announced on Monday, June 28, 2021 at 23:00. The "How to use [Smash Bros SP] Kazuya " will be released on Monday, June 28, 2021, at 23:00.
As you might expect, the distribution date will be soon, but we've got our hands full and "[Smash Bros SP] How to use Kazuya" will be aired! A lot of information was revealed, including "how to use"!
This time, we' d like to introduce the contents of the announcement in summary!
This time, we'll be reporting from the spacious studio!
This time, we'll be joined by Smash Bros. SP director Masahiro Sakurai(@Sora_Sakurai), who is also known for his "Kazuya's Ways of Use.
The previous episode, "How to Use Homura/Hikari," was recorded in mid-January 2021 at Mr. Sakurai's home due to the state of emergency declared in Tokyo and other parts of Japan.
It is always good to hear the reactions of the staff!
First of all, I would like to introduce the digest of Kazuya's normal moves that was shown at "Nintendo Direct | E3 2021"... I'll skip that part for now, as it will be explained again!
What is "Tekken"?
Kazuya, aka Kazuya Mishima, is a character in the "Tekken" series, but what exactly is "Tekken"? I'm sure some of you may be wondering, so let me start with an introduction to "Tekken"!
Tekken" is a 3D fighting game by Namco Bandai, the first of which was released in arcades in December 1994.
It is a series with a unique control system that allows players to perform a variety of attacks using four buttons corresponding to both hands and feet.
The latest title is " Tekken 7," which was released in arcades in 2015 and for home use on PS4, Xbox One, and PC in 2017.
Although numbered "7," there are many more titles in the series, including "Tag Tournament.
As for why a new fighter from "Tekken" is joining the series, Mr. Sakurai said
One day, I heard a voice from heaven.
No, it might have been from a company with the character "heaven" in it.
The voice said.
" Masahiro... Masahiro... Please let Tekken play in Smash Bros.
Well, when a company with the character for "Heaven" in its name asks you to do something, you have no choice but to do it!
However, he had a hard time designing a game that would be completely different from 3D fighting games such as "Tekken" and Smash Bros.
3D fighting games such as "Tekken" are games about "timing.
Smash Bros. is a game of coordinates.
But, it's difficult, isn't it?
But! Smash Bros. is a game that manages to make the impossible happen!
It seems that they found a good story in the "Tekken" setting and succeeded in incorporating it into Smash Bros.
The "Devil Factor" is the key to participation!
In "Tekken", there is a setting called " Devil F actor".
The "Devil Factor" is something thatKazuya 's mother, Kazumi Mishima, had, and it is inherited by her son, Kazuya.
Kazuya , Kazumi Mishima, and Kazuya 's son, Jin Kazama, are the only players in the Tekken series with the Devil Factor. Heihachi Mishima" does not have the "Devil Factor".
This seems to be the reason why "Heihachi Mishima" was not chosen as the new fighter.
And since Tekken 7 seems to be able to instantly and partially activate the Devil's power, I thought it would be better to keep the normal moves as close to Tekken as possible and replace the aerial jumps, smash attacks, special moves, etc. with the Devil's power to make it more Smash Bros. like. I'm looking forward to seeing how it will be adjusted.
I can't wait to see how they tweaked it!
The main topic, "How to use Kazuya," will be shown in the video!
Here's the main topic of the video: how to use Kazuya and its motions.
Normally, Saiga NAK would just be showing you how to use each of Kazuya's moves and controls, but Kazuya has the most variety of attacks in Smash Bros.
But since Kazuya has the most variety of attacks in Smash Bros. we can't just show you his moves, but also how and when to connect combos, and so on.
So for this article, please refer to Mr. Sakurai's explanation in the "How to use Kazuya" section!
There are a ridiculous number of controls, including normal moves, smash attacks, special moves, and more, so be prepared!
The video will start from the introduction of Special Moves.
New Stage "Mishima Dojo
The new stage that will be added with Kazuya is "Mishima Dojo ". It is the dojo of "Heihachi Mishima," not Kazuya.
As in a dojo, the four corners of the stage are blocked by walls and ceilings.
If the stage is left as is, it is impossible to shoot down a fighter due to the walls and ceiling, but a strong blow or direct attack will break the walls and ceiling, allowing the fighter to be dropped.
It is safe before they are broken, but after they are broken, the area becomes a danger zone at once.
Damage to walls and ceilings is proportional to the weight and speed of the character hitting them.
When a wall or ceiling is broken by a collision, the person who is hit by the wall or ceiling will not be able to take a passive stance.
After a wall is broken and the player is out of the fight, the player is close to the outside of the screen, and the scrolling does not follow, so the fight has a high density feel.
Broken walls and ceilings are somehow naturally rep aired over time. It's a wonder.
If they don't stay broken after they are broken, it will be important to take that into account.
Heihachi Mishima, the master of the dojo, is in the center of the stage.
He is sitting on the stage and reacts to the shot down.
There is no floor to slip through, but you will be able to enjoy a different game than in KOF Stadium.
Of course, it is also possible to turn it into a battlefield or an endpoint, in which case it will be outdoors.
As a small detail, the " Aiaigasa " on the floor of the dojo has also been recreated.
If you are interested, this is a great opportunity to play the "Tekken" series!
Kazuya's Trial by Mr. Sakurai!
Again, there will be a Kazuya demo with Mr. Sakurai in control.
It is a team competition, and the opposing team consists of the five members of the "Victims' Association" who were dropped into the crater by Kazuya in the movie.
Mr. Sakurai will start the game with only the last one, Kazuya!
Mr. Sakurai always shows us his brilliant play, but this time, he had no idea what was going to happen!
You will have to see for yourself!
A lot of music!
The music in the game is always gorgeous, but this time there will be a total of 39 songs in the game!
All of them are masterpieces selected from the long history of the "Tekken" series!
And since 8 of the songs are newly arranged, the music alone is worth the price of the DLC.
For the first time in Smash Bros. history! No fanfare!
For the first time in Smash Bros. history, there is no fanfare when Kazuya wins.
What will happen when he wins?
Just like in Tekken, a voiceover will call out your name and you will strike a pose that recreates the original! Fans will love it!
Not only the "Tekken 7" style, but also the "Tekken 5", "Tekken 6", and the original "Tekken" style.
And we've got color variations for you!
Kazuya will have a total of eight color variations, with four colors for two different outfits.
The odd-numbered color is the flame-embroidered undergarment, and the 7P color is the color of "Jin Kazama".
The even-numbered color is the coat, the 6P is the tuxedo style from "Tekken 2," and the 8P is the golden color from the original story.
Of course, Kirby copies are also available.
You can also see him transformed into a devil by using the Devil Blaster. Devil Kirby is cute.
And the bonus spirit board has been added!
Spirits boards will be added, of course.
Picked up are 10 types including pairs.
Among them, the " Kazama Jin " spirit can be transformed into the "Devil Jin" spirit at Lv.99.
In the "Heihachi Mishima" theme, the opponent can switch to Heihachi if he has the "Heihachi Mishima" Mii Costume that is already available.
Additional Mii Fighter Costume #10 is now available!
Additional Mii Fighter Costumes are also available! This time
- Lloyd [Swordsmanship] / Tales of Symphonia
- Dragonborn [Swordsmanship] / Skyrim
- Dante [Swordsmanship] / Devil May Cry
- Shanti [Fighting] / Shanti
.......and all of them seem to be good characters to participate in the main game!
As for "Shanti", a song called "Burning Town" from "Halr-Genie Hero" will be added. It's gorgeous.
Additional Mii Fighter Costume #10 will be available on the same day as Kazuya! The price is 81 yen each (including tax ), which is still unbeatable!
Distribution will begin on June 30, 2021!
It's the delivery date you've been waiting for!
The additional content "Kazuya Set" will be distributed on June 30, 2021 (Wednesday )! The price of the set is 662 yen (tax included).
Additional Mii Fighter Costume #10 will also be distributed on the same day.
Of course, the "Kazuya Set" is included in Fighter Pass Vol. 2, so those who have already purchased it can download it immediately after distribution.
It took a little time between the announcement and the "How to use Kazuya," but it won't be long before the "How to use Kazuya" is delivered!
Let's wait a little longer for the distribution!
Introducing the first new amiibo in a while!
We've announced the first new Smash Bros. amiibo since "Beret "!
As you may have guessed, we will be releasing an amiibo of Mien Mien, the first fighter added to the Fighter Pass Vol. 2!
From the sample, it looks like it was created with a lot of attention to detail!
And with the release of "Mien Mien", can we expect to see amiibo for the other fighters in Fighter Pass Vol. 2? Steve and the others are going to be interesting!
The Mienmien amiibo is scheduled to be released in 2022, so we'll have to wait for further news!
Next is the last fighter to be added!
That's it for this voluminous "How to use Kazuya" announcement.
The additional fighters will start with "Pac'n Flower," and the Fighter Pass Vol. 1 will include "Joker," "Yusha," "Banjo & Kazooie," "Terry Bogart," and "Beret Beret / Velez.
The Fighter Pass Vol. 2 adds "Mien Mien," "Steve/Alex," "Sephiroth," "Homura/Hikari," and "Kazuya.
The next one will be the last fighter added to the Fighter Pass Vol. 2, and the last one added to Smash Bros.
Mr. Sakurai also added " Finally, the next issue will be the last. There will be no extension. ", so it really and truly will be the last.
With the game scheduled to be released by the end of 2021, you'd think there wouldn't be any more additions... but the characters have been added and it's a start!
Mastering the play and getting into big fights with players from all over the world is what Smash Bros. is all about!
Let's look forward to the announcement of the last additional fighter!
