TEKKEN 8 Launches January 26th, 2024, Six New Characters and "Arcade Quest" Mode Confirmed

  

During Gamescom '23, Bandai Namco announced TEKKEN 8 will launch January 26th, 2024. The release date trailer confirmed six returning characters for the upcoming 3D fighter: Yoshimitsu, Steve Fox, Sergei Dragunov, Kuma, Leo Kliesen, and Shaheen. A new single-player mode called "Arcade Quest" was also revealed featuring customizable avatars. During Gamescom, Harada mentioned that Arcade Quest "focuses on you as a player and covers the arcade scene". In Arcade Quest, players earn in-game Fight Money to purchase Avatar and Character Customization items. This new mode also allows players to connect to online matches, similar to SF6's Battle Hub. The official release date trailer (below) also revealed the first character customization items in TEKKEN 8.
 

  
TEKKEN 8 will launch with 32 characters, with 4 additional post-launch DLC characters planned to release in the Year 1 Pass. Twenty-four characters have been revealed for TEKKEN 8 so far, with eight more reveals coming before launch.
 
Bandai Namco also announced several different editions of the game.
Here are promotional images showing the content for TEKKEN 8 Collector's Edition, Premium Collector's Edition, Ultimate Edition, Launch Edition, and Standard Edition. The Collector's and Premium Collector's Edition come with a Jin Kazama figurine, the Premium version featuring an "electrified" light-up version of the figure.
