The wrestler in a jaguar mask can still surprise us with new tricks!
Bandai Namco has released a two-minute Tekken 8 gameplay trailer that focuses entirely on the modern version of King.
The fighter still uses his iconic jaguar mask and will pit against his opponents with the classic fighting style based on melee, grabs, and fast attack combinations. You can also see his Heat System moves in action and slightly more flashy appearance.
Tekken 8 is being developed for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. The team has kept the release date a secret, but the fighting game may go on sale as early as 2023.
According to plans, Tekken 8 is now one of the publisher's most important games in development. The product is described as "to release in 2023 or later", which means it can be presented to the public in the fiscal year 2023, starting after March 31, 2023. Of course, this still leaves a chance for a release window in early 2024, as the fighting game is being developed on Unreal Engine 5 only for the latest generation of PlayStation and Xbox home consoles.
