Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s next fighter, Tekken’s Kazuya Mishima, arrives June 29, game director Masahiro Sakurai announced Monday during a livestream.

He’ll be included as part of Ultimate’s Challenger Pack 10, which costs $5.99, and as part of the game’s Fighters Pass Vol. 2, which costs $24.99. Sakurai said that Kazuya will be the penultimate fighter for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Just one more still-to-be-announced fighter remains.

Joining Kazuya on Tuesday will be a batch of new Mii Fighter costumes, including Devil May Cry’s Dante, The Elder Scrolls’ Dragonborn, Tales of Symphonia’s Lloyd, and Shantae from the Shantae series.

Kazuya Mishima was announced in June as the fifth fighter coming in the Nintendo Switch game’s Fighters Pass Vol. 2. He’s Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s 81st playable character (not including Echo Fighters).

Kazuya joins recently added characters Pyra and Mythra from Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Sephiroth from Final Fantasy 7, Min Min from Arms, and Steve/Alex from Minecraft. The most recent additions to the roster, Pyra and Mythra, were released in March.

Nintendo has one more character to reveal for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate before Dec. 31, 2021 to complete the game’s second Fighters Pass DLC. The first Fighters Pass added Joker from Persona 5, Hero from the Dragon Quest series, Banjo and Kazooie, Terry from Fatal Fury/The King of Fighters, and Byleth from Fire Emblem: Three Houses to Ultimate as paid content.

Update: Here is Kirby as Kazuya (and Devil Kazuya) in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate:
