Tekken 8 brings the fight to the next generation, using Unreal Engine 5 and creating one of the most visually stunning and immersive titles in the genre yet.

Tekken 8 pushes the envelope for fighting games and takes full advantage of the power of the latest generation of consoles

"Fist Meets Fate” in the dramatic new storyline in Tekken 8.

The Tekken series holds the Guinness World Record for being the longest-running video game storyline, with Tekken 8 continuing the tragic saga of the Mishima and Kazama bloodlines and their world-shaking father-and-son grudge matches. This latest saga begins where the previous title left off, with a world mired deep in the devastating war between Kazuya Mishima and Jin Kazama. After suffering what seems to be a defeat from Kazuya, Jin faces his own fate. His mother, Jun Kazama, appears after her absence from the Tekken franchise to try and turn the tide in this blood feud.

Tekken 8 will feature exciting new gameplay focused on “Aggressive” tactics. Retaining Tekken’s unique fighting game identity, the game will provide both players and spectators with the series’ most thrilling experience yet with visceral screen-jarring attacks and environments that are both dynamic and destructible.

Bandai Namco Entertainment announced that Tekken 8, released on January 26, 2024, surpassed a total of 1 million units worldwide on its first day of release and 2 million units in the first month.

Support for Tekken 8 will continue through various content updates, esports events, and music and licensing announcements.

The next step in Tekken esports, the Tekken World Tour 2024, will start on April 13, 2024. After successful Tekken World Tour events that have accompanied the lifecycle of Tekken 7, now players will compete with Tekken 8 through Tekken World Tour 2024 events across the world to earn points and progress through the rankings, with the hope of reaching the Tekken World Tour Finals and having a chance to become the best Tekken 8 player worldwide. 

As part of regular updates, the Tekken Shop is making its way into the game. This in-game shop will provide customization items such as costumes from previous installments, character skins for avatars, and licensed items from our collaborations, letting players put their own touch on their favorite Tekken characters.

In Tekken 8, all characters’ models have been completely remade from the ground up, making the most of the latest generation of hardware and providing a better experience for players.

Tekken 8 is available for PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC (Steam).
