While the video was quickly made private, you can still check Bandai Namco Entertainment’s YouTube channel’s Tekken 8 playlist. You will get a notification that says one video is hidden out of all the videos present in the playlist, which is something that didn’t happen before the leak. Additionally, according to the screenshots, Josie Rizal’s gameplay reveal trailer is titled “DLC 1.”
From what we know so far, Bandai Namco will be releasing four DLC characters each year. Tekken 8’s Deluxe Edition and Ultimate Edition come with a 1-year character pass, which will automatically unlock all DLC characters released for up to a year. The upcoming fighting game’s Standard Edition users will have to purchase each DLC character separately or purchase the character pass when it becomes available.

Josie Rizal made her first appearance in Tekken 7 as a professional kickboxer from the Philippines. The character was officially introduced as a playable character post-arcade launch of the game in April 2015 and was part of Tekken 7’s base roster when the game launched on PC and consoles in June 2017. Furthermore, according to her lore, Josie Rizal intends to join the Tekken Force in Tekken 7, the organization that helped her country in the past.
Tekken 8 has suffered numerous leaks in the past. The game is finally set to release on January 26 on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, and PC. The latest addition to the Tekken franchise introduces many new features and mechanics, such as the Heat System and the Fighting Lounge game mode that closely resembles Street Fighter 6’s Battle Hub.
