Tekken 8 continues to parade its characters and, for the most diehard fans, this time it’s time for the great return of Jun Kazama .
The character has been missing for many years and, until the last moment, fans hoped to be able to see her in past episodes of the franchise (such as Tekken 7 which you can find on Amazon) but they were not satisfied .ù
A new trailer that arrives while Tekken 8 continues to be very mysterious, so much so that even the gameplay has been sipped in recent months.
As well as release date information, which Bandai Namco has kept to himself in the same way.
Jun Kazama disappeared in action from Tekken 2, according to canon game history. She just appeared in Tekken Tag Tournament 2 , but being a sort of narrative spin-off she doesn’t really count for pure fans of Tekken characters and story .
Anyway, Jin Kazama’s mother is back in Tekken 8 and in addition to being in great shape, she gives us the impression that she is not to be joked with, even if she is peaceful .
In addition to showing us her elegant fighting style, the trailer also gives us a look at a newly revealed new combat stage, which takes players to an enchanting looking forest.
It is very likely that Jun will play a key role in the story of the fighting game, which focuses on the father-son confrontation between Kazuya and Jin.
In the meantime, we were able to discover, or at least imagine, what the return as Jin Kazama might be like, but also Paul Phoenix and his incredible hair, Marshall Law who is always as electrifying as we remembered him, the lightning-fast Lars, the mighty King and his ring charisma and Jack-8’s artificial intelligence.
Tekken 8 is the next chapter in Bandai Namco’s fighting game series, which will offer new characters, new game mechanics and finally next-gen graphics. At the moment, an official release date has not been announced, but the game will be available for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S and PC.
