Tekken 8 announced at EVO 2022

Tekken 8 was announced this weekend during the EVO 2022 fighting game championship. At least, we think it was, going by the vague teaser.

A year and a half since Tekken 7‘s last update, a brand new trailer confirmed a new balance update to come to Tekken 7, which will introduce “new tactics.”

And it also confirmed that the Tekken World Tour finals will take place in Amsterdam in February 2023.

The trailer finished with the climax of the original Tekken game, which sees Kazuya throw an unconscious Heihachi off a cliff.

A close-up on Kazuya’s PS1 face flashed and transitioned into a brand new 3D model of Kazuya, never before seen.

Of course, this could equally be a new entry in the Tekken series but not a mainline one.

There’s still time to speculate on what we might see from the future of Tekken, but with continued game updates and a new entry on the horizon, the future looks very bright.
