Tekken 8: Release date, trailer, story, gameplay and more

We had a lot of rumors about tekken 8 for many months. Without a doubt, tekken 8 is on its way, and it looks pretty amazing. All Tekken fans will definitely love it. In this blog, I will jot down the details regarding the highly anticipated upcoming game. Let’s dig into it.

Tekken 8 release date

The game is rumored to be released in July 2023 after EVO 2023. However, the announcement of tekken 8 didn’t include any information on an exact release date, so we can’t really predict a launch timeframe.


All Tekken fans can expect it to come to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S and PC. The point to mention here is that it won’t be supported on PS4, which makes sense with all that detailed work in Unreal Engine 5.

Gameplay and story

We’ve got a number of hints of the dynamic, rain-filled duel, particularly in regards to story progression. The story centers on a duel between Jin Kazama, the current main protagonist of the Tekkenverse, and his father, Kazuya Mishima. Kasama says:People like us shouldn’t existwhich directly references the Devil Gene they both inherited, a supernatural power with a tendency to corrupt and the ability to convert into a particularly wicked devilish form.

All Tekken fans know there has been trouble for Jin in the past, however, the trailer clearly shows that he has now taken control of the Devil Gene, to the point of using his evil powers without having need to completely transform. Through in-game footage, it’s clear to see juggling combos, power moves, and what appears to be Rage Art tapping into the Devil Gene. There are also good glimpses of the rain-filled environment, which appears to be very dynamic, with a raging storm and a crashing ship in the background.


There had been no words yet regarding the list. However, Jin and Kazuya are guaranteed to play key roles.


The trailer is from the story mode itself. The point worth mentioning here is that the story mode cutscenes use the same engine used by the actual gameplay. It gives a good overview of what the character models and even the movements will look like, as well as what kind of background we can expect when playing. It also runs at 60fps on a PlayStation 5, so there’s no background tweaking to make the action run smoother or more reliably.
