Get ready for the next chapter in the legendary fighting game franchise. Powered by Unreal Engine 5 and exclusively available on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC Digital, TEKKEN 8 pushes the limits of new-gen hardware, high-fidelity visuals, and immersive graphics. Stunning visual effects throughout each combine with character models and moves built from the ground up, adding new weight and atmosphere to TEKKEN’s signature battles. TEKKEN 8 turns every moment of impact into a spectacle, and every victory into an epic story.

New Game, New Rivalry

"Fist Meets Fate” in TEKKEN 8. The TEKKEN series holds the Guiness World Record for being the longest-running video game storyline. TEKKEN 8 continues the tragic saga of the Mishima and Kazama bloodlines and their world-shaking father-and-son grudge matches. This latest saga begins with Jin Kazama meeting Kazuya Mishima in a city-shattering face-to-face showdown.

An Emotional Return

After suffering what seems to be a defeat from Kazuya, Jin gets faced with own fate including his mother, Jun Kazama, who suddenly appears after her absence from the TEKKEN franchise to try and turn the tide in this blood-feud. After more than 25 years away, Jun Kazama joins TEKKEN 8 as a playable character!

To-date, iconic characters announced include Paul Phoenix, Marshall Law, King, Lars Alexandersson as well as Jack-8.

Stay tuned for more characters.

Exciting New Gameplay

TEKKEN 8 will feature exciting new gameplay focused on “Aggressive” tactics. Retaining TEKKEN’s unique fighting game identity, the game will provide both players and spectators with the series‘ most thrilling experience yet with visceral screen-jarring attacks and environments that are both dynamic and destructible. The latest entry in the series introduces an all-new game mechanic called the ”Heat System,” giving players the ability to harness aggressiveness as a tactic and incorporate offensive attacks into their playstyle, with special movements and enhancement of character ability based on each character’s unique features. Entering “Heat State” allows players to perform a special movement and enhance their character’s basic abilities. Staples such as “Rage Arts” and the series’ signature moves and combos make their return in TEKKEN 8 as well.

There is much more to reveal between now and launch. Get ready for the next battle!
