All five characters are the Tekken franchise’s legacy characters. The only new original character for the latest installment of Tekken we’ve seen so far is Azucena. Note that all the characters that have been revealed so far were mentioned in the Tekken 8 roster leak that happened a while ago. If we go by that leak, then the last two characters to be revealed might be Reina and Victor, two new original characters.
