TEKKEN 8 will be released on January 26, 2024 - Exclusive Game Content Reveal

TEKKEN 8 will be released on January 26 with the reveal of new features such as the possibility of customizing each character in the game and a new single-player game mode with an avatar character.

There are a total of 32 fighters in the game and the promise of a new TEKKEN saga, implying that TEKKEN 8 would be just the start of a new series of TEKKEN games with Kazuya MISHIMA as the new boss.

Ah, also we have an “official” appearance of Yoshimitsu in the game.

TEKKEN 8 – first trailer

TEKKEN 8 – Story Trailer

Heihachi Mishima is dead, Kazuya Mishima takes control and sets the world ablaze. JIN KAZAMA returned as a hero with more control over his power.

I watched this trailer more than 5 times and frankly, each time I woke up with chills.

I haven't played tekken much to follow the story. But frankly with this last one, I wonder if I should resume the previous tekken or wait for this last one.

Anyway, I don't want to miss anything on the story before playing tekken 8.

TEKKEN 8 Character

Nina Williams

Nina Williams - TEKKEN 8 character

Nina Williams, the silent assassin who first appeared in Tekken the First, is known for her fast and deadly assassination style.

She's also armed with firearms to defeat her enemies in style. For TEKKEN 8, his movements and his techniques have been improved, especially thanks to the introduction of new abilities to adapt to the "aggressive" philosophy of the game's new combat system.

She is involved in the Mishima saga in various ways for a long time. It remains to be seen how she will be involved in the story of TEKKEN 8.

Kazuya Mishima


Kazuya MISHIMA is the biological father of Jin KAZAMA, the hero of the new series. He is also the main antagonist (and sometimes a hero) who has played many roles in the plot of TEKKEN.

Kazuya Mishima used the full extent of his demonic power and the forces of the G Corp to attempt to take over the world.


Jin KAZAMA tekken 8

Inhabited by a deep hatred towards the cursed blood which courses in its veins, Jin Kazama sought to put an end to the demonic line.

He allied himself with Lars Alexandersson, and together they prepared to launch Operation Flash, a plan to eliminate the other holder of the devil gene, Kazuya Mishima.

How to play Tekken for story before Tekken 8?

Like me, you may want to play Tekken for the story before committing to Tekken 8.

The good news is that you don't have to play absolutely every Tekken game using every character from every game in the saga.

Other than the wiki, the best way to replay the original Tekken story up to the 8th story game is to follow these instructions:

  • Tekken 1: Complete Arcade mode with the character Kazuya

  • Tekken 2: Complete Arcade mode as the character Heihachi

  • Tekken 3: Complete Arcade Mode as the character Jin

  • Tekken 4: Play the story mode with the character Kazuya until stage 9 (when you have to face Jin). Then start the story mode again with the character Jin.
    • You must complete story mode with Kazuya to unlock Jin. But tell yourself that the canon (i.e. original) story stops at stage 9.

  • Tekken 5-6: Complete story mode as the character Jin

  • Tekken 7: Just playing the story mode

  • Tekken 8

A sublime video raises many questions around the next guest character in TEKKEN 8.

Will Baki HANMA be one of the characters in TEKKEN 8?

Nothing has been officially confirmed. So far, the only video of Baki in TEKKEN 8 that we have is a fan-made shared for the first time on the REDDIT platform.
