Tekken 8 Unveils Full Playable Character Roster

Tekken 7 was released about eight years ago, and it looks that we are moving closer to the next iteration of the renowned game. We got our first glimpse at Bandai Namco’s Tekken 8 at the 2022 Game Awards, when the publisher unveiled the game’s debut video. That trailer showed us a couple of the characters who will be in the forthcoming game. So, who is going to be in Tekken 8? Here’s a list of the characters who have been confirmed to appear in it.

All confirmed Tekken 8 characters

As previously said, Bandai Namco debuted the first trailer for Tekken 8 at the 2022 Game Awards. A tweet from the official Tekken account accompanies the first glimpse at Tekken 8. That tweet offered a glance at some of the returning combatants, as well as an intriguing twist that should pique the curiosity of long-time fans of the series.

Here are the characters we know will be included in Tekken 8 as of December 9, 2022:

  1. Jack-8
  2. Jin
  3. Jun
  4. Kazuya
  5. King
  6. Lars
  7. Law
  8. Nina Williams
  9. Paul

Father. Son. Mother. This family reunion is going to be explosive.  #TEKKEN 8 is bringing back old grudges to the new generation – Kazuya, Jin, Paul, King, Law, Lars, Jack-8 and… the return of Jun Kazama!

Jun’s presence is somewhat puzzling, given he has not appeared in the series since Tekken 2. Jun was ostensibly killed off, however she did appear in the teaser confirming her participation in Tekken 8.

Nina Williams was officially announced on the Tekken 8 lineup in early February 2023, continuing the roster reveals.

Once Bandai Namco provides more information on the title, we should have a better idea of the whole lineup. We don’t know when Bandai will release Tekken 8 as of this writing. So far, we just have a list of characters and console information from The Game Awards. Tekken 8 will be available on Steam for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
