TEKKEN 8 initial roster is now complete with the announcement of Reina, the last launch character. Reina, the Purple Lightning, is using her lightning-quick moves to overwhelm her opponents. She is surrounded by mystery as the only known fact about her is that she is a student at the Mishima Polytechnical School. She also seems to have a very particular interest in Jin, especially in fighting him.

The game’s launch roster will count 32 characters with a storyline centred around the fight of Jin Kazama and Kazuya Mishima. Along those two characters, players will be able to play some fan-favourites like Paul Phoenix and Yoshimitsu, returning characters such as Jun Kazama and Raven, and the three brand-new additions: Azucena, Victor Chevalier and Reina.

In TEKKEN 8, all characters’ models have been completely remade from the ground up, making the most of the latest generation of hardware and providing a better experience for players. TEKKEN 8 will launch on 26th of January 2024 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and PC.

Check out my preview for TEKKEN 8, which I was lucky enough to try out a couple of months back. Honestly, I’m really excited for this latest entry. What am I most excited about? Why playing as Yoshimitsu again of course. The terrifying cyborg ninja has been a part of my gaming life since its very beginning.
