A closed community check for Tekken 8 was held in July, with an preliminary run that was solely obtainable to Ps 5 homeowners adopted by a broader check that included gamers on Steam. Letting PC players close to Tekken 8 meant that somebody fired up Cheat Engine due to course they did, at which level they managed to discover a partial roster within the game’s recordsdata that features six beforehand unannounced characters.

These characters are Alisa, Raven, Shaheen, Steve, Yoshimitsu, and Zafina. By Raven they presumably imply the favored Blade-looking fighter added in Tekken 5, fairly than Grasp Raven, his broadly disliked substitute from Tekken 7. 

As a former Yoshimitsu foremost I am happy to see his return, although not shocked. He is been in each mainline Tekken game because the authentic in any case. Clearly this is not an entire model of the roster because it excludes a number of different characters whose absence is unlikely, comparable to Kuma and Panda, in addition to Robert “Bob” Richards, whose inclusion has been hinted at within the new Occasions Sq. stage.

Which suggests there’s nonetheless an opportunity for Fortunate Chloe to be a part of the line-up, in addition to whichever of your private favorites hasn’t been introduced as being a part of the Tekken 8 character listing to this point. They would not embody Nina Williams however pass over her sister Anna, would they?

A launch date for Tekken 8 has but to be introduced, however we do know it will have crossplay and rollback netcode, in addition to a brand new battle system.
