The story revolves around the final conflict between father and son Mishima Kazuya and Kazama Jin, as Jin attempts to end the family chaos by defeating Kazuya. There are 32 characters, both new and familiar, each contributing to the overall narrative. The development debuted at Evo 2022 in August 2022 and was officially demonstrated at the Sony State of Play in September.

“Tekken 8” was developed using Unreal Engine 5, emphasizing the aggressive tone and upgrading the combat elements of the previous game. New mechanics such as the “Heat” system and “Tornado” clicks were introduced, as well as the addition of an online mode, Arcade Quest, offering tournaments, arcade features and customizable avatars.

“Tekken 8” underwent game testing in July and October 2023 to ensure stability before releasing the demo version on consoles in December. The game’s first season pass, which includes downloadable content and new characters, is available during pre-order. It was released to critical acclaim, praising the series’ progress and aggressive gameplay, with some publications praising Tekken 8 as the best entry since Tekken 3.

Tekken 8 gameplay

Like its predecessor, Tekken 8 is a fighting game with some exciting twists. Producer Katsuhiro Harada mentioned that this movie will be more radical than the previous one. They’ve introduced a new feature called “Heat” which gives characters extra moves and changes how certain moves work.

It rewards players who actively attack rather than just defend. When characters are in “hot” status, they deal fragmentation damage and have new actions. If a character uses certain actions, the “heat” timer stops. Some technical updates include changes to the Fury system, now called Thermal Crush. The “screw” mechanism is replaced by a “tornado” extender, which puts the opponent in a special state when falling rapidly.

Some stages present hazards, such as breakable walls and floors or explosive elements that send opponents flying. Tekken 8 aims to be a more cinematic experience, emphasizing staged destruction and character reactions. All character models and voices are brand new and not recycled from previous games.

The online mode features an “Arcade Quest” lobby for battles and tournaments, allowing players to customize their avatars with “Fight Money.” “Tekken 8” uses the advanced Unreal Engine 5, making it the first large-scale fighting game to use this engine. Excitingly, Tekken 8 introduces cross-platform online functionality, allowing players on PlayStation 5, Windows, and Xbox Series X/S to play together for the first time in the series’ history. Cross-platform play can be turned on or off based on player preference.
