It has been hinted by Bandai Namco that Tekken 8 will make a debut at the forthcoming The Game Awards ceremony. There were suspicions that the maker of the fighting game series will release a new installment after Tekken 7’s support ran out last year. FOLLOW FOR MORE UPDATES newsyorbits.com
This covered a variety of topics, such as brand-new Bandai Namco patents and other elements like the 2021 Nvidia GeForce leak. Before Bandai Namco officially revealed Tekken 8 at the PlayStation State of Play back in September, these theories gained momentum with the release of the game’s first teaser trailer at EVO this year. A gameplay trailer showcasing the game playing on next-generation technology was also included in this announcement. FOLLOW FOR MORE UPDATES TWITTER
Tekken 8: Hinting At 2022
Many were taken aback by Tekken 8’s debut, which featured gameplay that featured the two members of the infamously squabbling Mishima family engaged in combat during a furious storm. This teaser included dynamic weather effects, highly-detailed and realistic graphics running at 60 frames per second, as well as famous maneuvers by both Kazuya Mishima and his son Jin Kazama using their Devil Gene powers. Fans will probably get to watch more Tekken 8 action during the forthcoming awards ceremony later this month.
A brand-new teaser video that featured the game’s logo and the date December 8, 2022 was posted on Bandai Namco’s official Twitter account, which made this information public. This is in line with the announcements that will be made at The Game Awards 2022 from important publishers and creators. The teaser video only asks viewers to “save the date” and tune in at that time, not to reveal what will be displayed.
One possibility for what might be displayed at The Game Awards is additional gameplay featuring the Mishima family or even more roster members. The release date for Tekken 8 might also be revealed, since Bandai Namco previously claimed that they hoped to have the game out by the end of the 2023 fiscal year. This being said, series executive producer Katsuhiro Harada indicated the game’s release date wouldn’t be revealed until it had passed a certain stage in production, so for the time being, this is simply conjecture.
Tekken 8 is expected to be a highly anticipated installment in the franchise despite the wait. It not only follows Tekken 7 by an entire console generation, but it also bills itself as the culmination of the animosity between Jin and Kazuya, two members of the Mishima family. The Game Awards might be able to shed some light on what to anticipate from the eighth entry.
