During Opening Night Live at Gamescom 2023, series director Katsuhiro Harada took the stage to reveal a ton of new information for Tekken 8. The new trailer gave a first look at a new single-player game mode called Arcade Quest, confirmed a bunch of returning characters, and revealed its launch date: January 26, 2024.
Arcade Quest centers around you as the player and is themed around growing up in the competitive Tekken arcade scene. You’ll create a chibi-style avatar and fight different people within an in-game arcade setting. Some customization options and open areas for the mode were showcased in the trailer.
The Tekken 8 Gamescom trailer stated that the game will launch with 32 characters in total. This includes returning fighters such as Shaheen, Kuma, Yoshimitsu, Dragunov, Steve Fox, and Leo. You can also check out some new gameplay along with all the reveals from the trailer.
You can preorder Tekken 8 starting on August 22, 2023 for Xbox consoles, PlayStation platforms, and PC. We previewed the game earlier this year, so be sure to check out our Tekken 8 hands-on impressions.
