The last few days have been big for fans of fighting games, with Evo having brought with it major updates on a number of upcoming titles, from Mortal Kombat 1 to Fatal Fury: City of the Wolves. Bandai Namco has joined in on the fun as well, and released two new trailers that add a couple of characters to Tekken 8’s growing roster of fighters.
Both Raven and newcomer Azucena were leaked recently by Bandai Namco Europe itself, and both have now been officially confirmed. Raven, of course, makes his return after being missing in action in Tekken 7, and is bringing all of his crunching, shadowy abilities along with him. Azucena, meanwhile, hails from Peru, loves coffee, and uses a mixture of agile dodging and impactful strikes in fights. Alongside Jack-8, she’s the second new character to be added to Tekken 8’s roster. Check out both trailers below for a glimpse of what the duo will bring to the table.
Recently, six unannounced characters from Tekken 8’s roster were also leaked, courtesy of datamining of its closed network test, with Raven being one of the six. Read more about that through here.
Tekken 8 is in development for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC. Bandai Namco has previously said it’ll launch sometime before April 2024.
