The reveal showcased the Arcade Quest – a completely new single player mode that will prove the ultimate training ground, tapping into the franchise’s roots to introduce a new way to play and polish skills. In this mode, players can create and customize their own avatar and “visit” different arcades to participate in matches designed to improve their play and teach new techniques. As players progress through the story, they will continue to develop and grow stronger along with their avatar and hone their skills against tougher and tougher opponents in a story not too different to how some real players got into esports.

Continuing the regular cadence of TEKKEN 8 character reveals, the trailer announced returning favourites joining the 32-character roster, with Kuma, Leo, Shaheen, Steve, Dragunov, and Yoshimitsu showcasing their updated looks and moves. All the characters in TEKKEN 8 will have deep customisation choices, including completely new options, with the possibility to change each part’s colours as well as the size and position of accessories, letting players really show their style and bring personal flair to their favourite characters.

TEKKEN 8 is now available for pre-order in Standard, Deluxe, and Ultimate Editions. Pre-orders for the Standard Edition will include the base game, once available, and grant players the Paul Phoenix set as an Avatar Costume. PlayStation 5 players will receive the Mokujin and Testujin Avatar skins. The Deluxe Edition includes all standard items along with the Playable Character Year 1 Pass, which unlocks four characters, released after the game’s launch, as well as the Kinjin Avatar skin. It also includes the Gold Suit Pack of playable character costumes for all 32 characters, letting players bring the bling to their battles. The Ultimate Edition includes all content and bonuses of the Deluxe edition, along with Avatar skins for Kazuya, Jin, and Jun, as well as 32 patterns of classic TEKKEN t-shirt sets for players to personalise their avatars and perhaps relive past memories from this legendary franchise.
