Get ready for the next battle! Tekken 8 characters have been trickling in over the past couple of months, even without a release date for Bandai Namco’s next big fighter. Every character announcement has been accompanied by a special gameplay trailer too, giving us a great look at their new appearance, movesets and rage arts.
So far, the Tekken 8 roster is composed of returning characters. Some are updated versions, like the latest iteration of Jack. Others, like Jun Kazama, are excitingly making their first appearance in over a decade. There’ll no doubt be fresh faces joining the Tekken 8 roster at some point, but for now here are some fighters we all know and love making a comeback to the King of Iron Fist tournament… if they actually manage to have one in this game.
Tekken 8 character roster
With Evo Japan 2023 announcing two more characters, Tekken 8’s roster is now up to 12 fighters. All of them have their own individual gameplay trailers, which I’ve linked to each respective character below.
Tekken 8 rumoured characters
Bandai Namco has done a damn good job of keeping tight-lipped about Tekken 8’s character list. Despite hands-on previews, nary a peep of upcoming fighters has been leaked to the greater masses.
We can probably take some educated guesses for future Tekken 8 fighters, though. Asuka’s arrival almost certainly cements Lili De Rochefort’s place on the roster, and the new Times Square stage has little hat-tips to characters like Bob dotted in the background. Personally, I’ll be here hoping for Lucky Chloe to make her return.
