With every new Smash Bros. fighter comes a new copy ability for Kirby. It’s thanks to that mimicry that we have Kazuya Kirby, and the contrast on display here is exquisite.

 

 

Not only does Kirby take on Kazuya’s trademark hair, he also gains his gloves and heterochromia as well. On top of that, Kirby also now has access to the Kazama lineage’s Devil Gene. It’s through this that he can transform further into a Devil himself to fire off beams for his standard special move. 

The real get here isn’t just the combat power, though. This theoretically makes Kirby as hungry for revenge as Kazuya. Just look at those angy eyebrows and tell me he wouldn’t overtake a conglomerate that brought him back from the dead to tear down his father’s own business empire and also throw him into a ravine and/or volcano. That’s just how Tekken goes, you know?

Whatever the case, this along with everything else on the way in Smash Ultimate’s Tekken filled Challenger Pack 10 will be available on June 29th.

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.
