And with a new announcement from the team behind the game, we get to see more of the Street Fighter legend in action. The official Super Smash Bros. Japanese Twitter account released a short video showing off some of his moves.
And lucky for fans that wanted him in Smash, the Ken featured in the game contains some iconic moves that fans will instantly recognize. His versions of a Heavy Shoryuken, a Hadoken, a Tatsumaki Senpukyaku and other moves are all included in the game. Each move has different visual effects or is modified graphically to make it visually distinct from those of Ryu, who Ken is the Echo Fighter for. Ken also possesses unique Throws and Counters that are useful in different situations, say for launching opponents or pushing them to one side of the stage.
