Tekken 8 is Now Available Worldwide on PS5, Xbox Series, and PC

Bandai Namco Entertainment Asia has announced that Tekken 8 is now available worldwide for PS5, Xbox Series, and PC.

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 Jin Kazama. 

Here’s what players can expect from the game:

  • “Aggressive” New Combat System – TEKKEN 8 introduces an all-new “aggressive” combat system designed to keep the action at a high level 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.

  • 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.
