I actually have had a theory that Bandai Namco might choose Jin over Heihachi. We know Heihachi dies in Tekken 7, and we know in Tekken 8 Jin will be the main focus. We have seen Bandai Namco push Jin as the face of Tekken before in Tekken 3. So what if they use Jin in Smash Bros Ultimate to really solidify the fact he is now the main face of Tekken not Heihachi. Aslo Heihachi has been consistently chosen before in other cross promotions, but now that Bandai Namco is pushing Jin. They might say its time for Jin to be the one pushed. Im not saying it will happen, but it is a very big possibility. In my opinion its now Jin vs Lloyd in competition for the Bandai Nacmo spot. It could still be Lloyd, but I wouldn't dismiss that Jin might be in the running now.

Also how great would this be? Just my opinion, but Ryu vs Jin in Smash would be epic.

Have I missed anything since last night? Saw GameXplain’s review. Bout what I expected. Shame they said WOL was a bit of a slog, but they had to get the review out in time so that might be a result of that.
I guarantee that's why. WoL seems like a mode meant to be played in bursts on the train or before bed. It's the same design philosophy as Mario Odyssey's moons - reward short bursts of play with tangible rewards. I'm looking forward to it.

I think I recognize Jin, but I'm not familiar with him or his name as I've never played a Tekken game before. At least I don't think I have. What was that fighting game on the Sega Saturn that had that guy that got drunk before battle and would drink more after he won?

Jin would be cool, but what if it’s Kazuya?

Huh, some competitive Smashers are also part of the Dev Team at Ultimate!
aMSa :yoshimelee: - Melee Yoshi player who currently ranked 8th at Melee PGR Top 100
9B :4bayonetta:- Smash 4 Bayonetta player who recently ranked 44th at PGR 100
Earth :4pit::4corrinf:- Smash 4 Pit/Corrin player who recently ranked 42nd at PGR 100
Ranai :4villager:- Smash 4 Villager main who formerly ranked around the top 20s at PGR v3

These guys are testers, testing the gameplay at Ultimate during the time prior to Release!

As a competitive lover, this makes me smile :)

Minus the hour of my life wasted trying to figure out where the flying taxi was. That's one advantage Ultimate has over Odyssey.

Not sure if everyone here has seen this already, but Heihachi is a part of Pacman's moveset. Does this mean Lloyd not Heihachi is the Bandai Namco rep? Or will they pull a Chrom and have him in the game as a playable fighter and also in another characters moveset?

I watched it, there's also the Prince from Katamari Damacy and Don Chan from Taiko no Tatsujin. Remember that Lloyd ****ing Irving was a Mii costume in smash 4... :oneeye:

LLOYD IS OUR BOY

Combine that with Jin's moveset being in Soulcalibur and the fact that he may have a little more moveset potential with the devil transformation...you may have a point.

Of course my Tekken main is Alisa because I love robots so I'd want her. But really, Jin would be sick.

The only person I can think of is Bo Rai Cho from mortal kombat, but I don't think thats who you are referring to.

Heihachi, Kazuya and Jin are the big three of Tekken. Originally Kazuya was the main character, but they switched it to Jin in Tekken 3. Then they all sort of meshed together, Heihachi is the face of Tekken though, or at least he was. It remains to be seen who will be the main face in the next Tekken games.

Jin would be cool, but what if it’s Kazuya?
Kazuya, could be considered, but I doubt it. Considering its obvious they are going to push Jin, based on Tekken 7's ending. Also im not sure if Kazuya is more popular than Jin. Kazuya hasn't really been the face of Tekken since Tekken 1 & 2. And like I said I don't think they will make him the face of Tekken in Tekken 8, based on Tekken 7's ending.

It's just a sprite, I heavily doubt it'll effect anything.
That is true, thats why I said it could be like another Chrom instance. Where the character is part of moveset, but also a playable fighter.

Honestly I'm probably thinking of Virtua Fighter since it was on the Sega Saturn. I think that was the only Sega Saturn fighting game I've played. Well, that and Sonic the Fighters
