from the previous presentation in this manner. Sakurai might have spent some early time explaining the history of the Tekken series and why Kazuya was chosen over the other competitors.
During the E3 reveal, Sakurai gave us a brief teaser that gave us a glimpse of around 32 different moves and abilities of Kazuya.
We’ll also learn about a special system that might appear during Kazuya’s gameplay. It seems that something is going on with Kazuya’s demonic form based on what’s shown in the trailer.
It’s clear that Kazuya is armed with a different Rage Mechanism from Tekken 7. At the end of the trailer, Kazuya shows off Rage Art after his red light is triggered.
As usual, Sakurai will show us his skills with upcoming DLC characters by battling against computer opponents. Maybe we’ll see Kazuya’s arcade mode or the Tekken Sprit Board battle that players will unlock with Kazuya’s integration.
We should get some information about the next Mii bundles available for purchase for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, most likely these will be Tekken and Bandai Namco themed.
Finally, information about Kazuya’s release date will be revealed during the presentation. Our current predictions suggest that Kazuya will be released that night. Judging from the message telling us that version 12.0.0 is coming soon, we might be able to play Kazuya at the end of the week.
