Almost eight years after the release of Tekken 7, it appears we are getting closer to the next installment of the iconic franchise. We got our first look at Bandai Namco’s Tekken 8 at the 2022 Game Awards, as the publisher released the first trailer for the game. That trailer gave us a glimpse of some of the characters that will be part of the next game. So, who’s in Tekken 8? Here’s a look at what characters are confirmed to be in it.
All confirmed characters for Tekken 8
As mentioned before, Bandai Namco released the first trailer for Tekken 8 at the 2022 Game Awards. The initial look at Tekken 8 was also accompanied by a tweet from the official Tekken account. That tweet included a look at some of the returning fighters who will be returning, including an interesting twist that should have longtime fans of the series excited for the future.
Here’s a look at the characters we know will be included for Tekken 8, as of December 9, 2022:
Jun’s inclusion is somewhat curious, as Jun hasn’t been a part of the series since Tekken 2. Jun was supposedly killed off, but he appeared in the trailer confirming his presence in Tekken 8.
We should get more clarity on the overall roster, once Bandai Namco releases more information on the title. As of this writing, we don’t know when Bandai will release Tekken 8. All we know so far is the list of characters released at The Game Awards, as well as console information. Tekken 8 will be released for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam.
