Tekken 8 is happening?
Tekken the renowned fighting video game which is developed by Bandai entertainment is apparently coming with its 8th installment. Everyone is so excited and their eyes are on just one thing which is its release date. Tekken 7 released in 2017 got a moderate response and didn’t get much acknowledgment according to the developer’s expectations. Tekken 8 is an only way to make a gigantic comeback as redemption to gather fame and great reception this time. Hope it lives up to gamers expectations.
When it’s coming out?
Nothing is confirmed by the developers. No Tekken 8 trailer has come out. Complete silence on this matter but at the end of Tekken 7 teaser was released which shows that something will come sooner. After defeating the Akuma (Game’s Character) as devil Kazuya in a special chapter, gamers watched a secret ending (Tekken 8 teaser) that indicates upcoming things. Although it was short and problematic it still gives a direction to where the story will be heading in Tekken 8. The trailer will only come out after the official announcement of game release date. Gamer’s main focus is still on how Heihachi will come back from dead in Tekken 8.
Heihachi is the main character in Tekken universe that removing him is just impossible. At the end of Tekken 7, the scene opened with a panorama of the ruined city. Alisa, Lars and Lee were standing on a rooftop, discussing the future. Lars said that Jin’s the one who sent the world to hell, and now it’s his duty to bring it back. All three turned around, and the camera slowly showed Jin walking out of the shadows. He accepted the responsibility of killing Kazuya and also said that devil blood is running through his veins. Glowing sigils appeared on his forehead, and the camera faded to black. Everything is a mystery.
There is no information revealed about the game graphics, features and storyline but according to fans beliefs, it will be profoundly different from Tekken 7. Tekken 7 didn’t get a great response critically but it is such a big franchise that sales and profit wise it still did pretty good. It has sold 3 Million copies worldwide since its release. eSports is still developing so there is no reason for developers to rush the release. Till this day Tekken 7 content is being released. It may come out in 2021 if we take the time frame as evidence between Tekken 6 and Tekken 7 which was 6 years. It is a no brainer that Tekken 8 will come because it has a massive fan following and the series is already a huge commercial success. There should be no doubt about it. It’s just a matter of time. Ongoing success of the Tekken series should be enough for developers to pursue the 8th installment. Tekken 7 console release was already late so it is must that banco is going to extend the game’s lifetime more.
