Journalists shared their first impressions of Tekken 8. In the videos, a lot of new shots with the gameplay appeared, and various details became known. Previously, the publisher of the fighting game showed trailers of fighters, for example Lin Xiaoyu and Jun Kazama. Portal author IGN was surprised by the wide variety of content and said that Tekken 8 is a “knockout” to other fighting games. A similar opinion is shared by the publication Gameinformerwhich stated that Bandai Namco publishes one of the few fighting games that is still relevant.
IGN also spoke with the developers and found out a lot of new details. For example, about the customization of heroes and the “thermal system”, which will allow you to deliver enhanced strikes. This brings variety to the usual gameplay of the series.
IN GamesRadar expressed interest in a system of enhanced strikes that can be accumulated and used at critical moments. It also gives you the opportunity to play aggressively to get the ability as quickly as possible and use it right away.
Journalists GameSpot stated that Tekken 8 takes combat mechanics to a whole new level. Now more effort is needed to become a true master of the game. There are more incentives for an aggressive style, and a new development vector and a “thermal system” make the game better than its predecessor in the face Tekken 7.
Tekken 8 will be released on PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series, but the release date is unknown. But you can see the trailers of various characters, for example Half a Phoenix or Jina Kazama.
