TEKKEN 8 Stream Confirms Iconic Costumes, In-Game Shop, Eddy Gordo on Character Select / Main Menu


Bandai Namco's latest TEKKEN Talk livestream featuring Michael Murray, Katsuhiro Harada and Kohei Ikeda took place earlier today. The stream revealed upcoming post-release content for TEKKEN 8 including "iconic" legacy costumes for Jin Kazama, Jun Kazama, Kazuya Mishima, and Ling Xiaoyu soon to be available in TEKKEN 8's new TEKKEN Shop. Once available, these legacy costumes will cost 400 Tekken coins (or $4.00 USD) each. During the stream, the development team also previewed Eddy Gordo in TEKKEN 8, showing new gameplay along with Eddy's character model on the character select screen as well as the game's main menu with an upcoming option to replace Kazuya. The development team hinted that this will become a feature extended to all future DLC characters and (potentially) all current playable characters in TEKKEN 8.




On Twitter, Katsuhiro Harada confirmed that each future TEKKEN 8 DLC character will come with their own
Story Mode "expansion pack", including Eddy Gordo. These story mode expansions will become available this Summer (after the month of May), to show how each character was involved in the game's main story mode, "The Dark Awakens". Additionally, Harada confirmed that these story expansions can be enjoyed for free without having to purchase the DLC characters!

Eddy Gordo's release date hasn't been finalized yet, but Bandai Namco said it will be announced as soon as they confirm it. Along with the addition of the TEKKEN Shop featuring new character and avatar customization items, balance updates and the adjustment of behavior / properties of moves for some characters will also be applied in future updates. Below is the full archive from the February 2024 TEKKEN Talk stream.

The new Eddy Gordo gameplay begins around the 1:14:00 mark.
