TEKKEN 8, the latest entry in the legendary TEKKEN franchise, is now available worldwide. Published by Bandai Namco Entertainment Asia, TEKKEN 8 brings the fight to the new generation, powered by Unreal Engine 5 and arriving on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam. Get ready for heart-pounding battles featuring all-new gameplay modes and features, completely remodeled characters, destructible environments, and more.

TEKKEN 8, developed by Bandai Namco Studios Inc., pushes the envelope for fighting games and takes full advantage of the power of the latest generation of consoles to create one of the most visually stunning and immersive titles in the series yet. The sequel picks up after the gruesome battle that ended in Heihachi Mishima’s defeat, focusing on a new rivalry pitting father against son as Kazuya Mishima’s quest for world domination is defiantly opposed by TEKKEN 8’s protagonist, Jin Kazama.


TEKKEN 8 features:

  • “Aggressive” New Combat System – TEKKEN 8 introduces an all-new “aggressive” combat system designed to keep the action high and incorporate new offensive tactics into their playstyle with features such as the Heat System and Rage. The game comes with a deep roster of 32 characters, with models all created from the ground up, and includes three completely new characters – Azucena, Victor and Reina. TEKKEN 8 also introduces Special Style that can be switched at any time during battle, allowing newcomers to enjoy them without having to learn all the necessary techniques.
  • “The Dark Awakens” Story Mode – The Mishima Saga continues in the “The Dark Awakens.” Experience the next chapter of the TEKKEN storyline, featuring a seamless gameplay experience with smooth transitions, cinematic scenes, and intense battles. In addition to the normal story mode, players can enjoy full-character episodes of all 32 characters.
  • Arcade Quest Mode – In this new single-player mode, players can create their avatar and take on various challenges in an adventure across several different arcades. Arcade Quest is an ideal place for fighting game newcomers to begin their journey. Players rise through the ranks of local arcades as they bring their gameplay skills to peak performance.
  • TEKKEN Fight Lounge – Players can gather around in this large-scale virtual lobby that has been made to recreate the feeling of being at an arcade with your friends. From this lobby, various modes can be accessed, such as the TEKKEN Dojo to train, the Arcade to fight friends and players from all around the world, the beach area to play TEKKEN Ball or the Customization shop to make your character or your avatar look unique.
  • Super Ghost Battle – Players can test their skills against ghosts in Super Ghost Battle. Challenge your own ghosts, A.I.-driven CPU fighters that use play data from TEKKEN developers, or download and challenge other players’ ghosts in the TEKKEN Fight Lounge.
  • Multiplayer with Cross-Play – TEKKEN 8 features various multiplayer modes, including local versus, online ranked and player matches, and the return of TEKKEN Ball, and lets players challenge friends and foes regardless of their platform with online cross-play.
