TEKKEN 8 Patch 1.02.01, TEKKEN Shop Live


Early this morning, Bandai Namco released patch 1.02.01 for TEKKEN 8 adding the TEKKEN Shop where players can purchase a variety of fan-favorite legacy costumes for characters and avatars. In addition to the paid DLC content, free "UT x TEKKEN" collaboration t-shirt designs were made available for all playable characters and avatars. Interestingly, the in-game shirts are the same designs featured in UNIQLO's "Fighting Game Legends" collaboration graphic T-shirts celebrating the legacy of TEKKEN and Street Fighter, now available at UNIQLO stores. Below is a quick look at TEKKEN 8's new in-game Shop UI, followed by a preview of the first legacy costumes (available now). Additionally, you can read the full TEKKEN 8 1.02.01 patch notes further down.
