Super Smash Bros. Ultimate version 12.0.0 is now live, bringing the latest fighter to the Nintendo Switch game: Kazuya from Tekken! In addition to the new fighter, this latest update brings in multiple new Mii Fighter Costumes from various video games, as well as new Spirits based on the Tekken franchise. Last but not least, players can expect to see other fixes that have been made to the gameplay experience. With just one fighter left from Fighter's Pass Vol. 2, this is probably the second last major update the game will see. Full patch notes have been released by Nintendo and can be found below.

Now that Kazuya has been added to the game, fans will have to wait patiently to find out who the final fighter will be! Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has a massive roster of playable characters spanning the history of the video game medium. While fans would love to see Master Chief, Crash Bandicoot, or Sora join the line-up, it remains to be seen how Nintendo will wrap things up. For now, fans will just have to wait patiently, but version 12.0.0 should keep them pretty busy while they're waiting for the game's next major announcement!
