Bandai Namco Entertainment recently disclosed that Tekken 8 would be the franchise’s most recent game less than a month after giving fans hints about a new Tekken project during the multi-genre FGC event EVO 2022.
Amid the Tekken 8 trailer, Jin Kazama and Kazuya Mishima, the two main characters of the series, battle it out in a storm during the PlayStation State of Play. Even though the trailer was just two minutes long, it provides some information about what the main title may have in store for its audience.
We’ve outlined all you need to know about the most recent Tekken 8 trailer. Tekken is changing things significantly in its most recent incarnation.
After Heihachi Mishima, Kazuya’s father and the head of the Mishima Zaibatsu was defeated during the events of Tekken 7, Kazuya rose to the top of the food chain.
However, it appears that Jin Kazama is now focusing on Kazuya and his company, G Corporation. By the end of the previous game, Lee Chaolan, the creator of Violet Systems, Lars, Alisa, and Jin had assembled their team of fighters.
The G Corporation emblem and a military helmet may be seen in the trailer among the fighting debris; this could be a clue as to the biotech company’s future.
The father and son were shown trading blows in the Tekken 8 trailer’s fight sequence, and we couldn’t help but note the game’s apparent next-gen console graphic boost. The EWGF appears more intense, and the fighters’ bodies appear even more sculpted. Realistic rain effects and dynamic lighting are also present on the storm-like stage.
Katsuhiro Harada, the game’s leading producer, revealed that the footage was taken straight from the game’s potential story mode on the PS5, so players may anticipate a visual experience that is quite similar.
It is not a pre-rendered movie but rather real-time render footage at 60 frames per second, simulating the game’s versus fight types, according to Harada’s blog post on the PlayStation site.
The dazzling moves of Jin Kazama were also showcased in the Tekken 8 trailer. Due to their varied movesets, the Tekken team had decided to create Jin and his Devil as two separate characters; however, this may no longer be the case.
Now that the fighter has accepted his alter persona, we witness him unleashing what appears to be his latest Rage Art by supercharging a punch on Kazuya. Remember, though, that this might just be done in the story mode to add some variety. Except for Devil Kazuya and Devil Kazumi, unique versions of some characters were playable with and against Tekken 7.
