As expected, Kazuya Mishima returns to take his revenge as he wins the first-ever King of the Iron Fist tournament, beating his father, Heihachi Mishima, in the finals. After beating this father, Kazuya throws him off the same cliff. A fall that Heihachi Mishima also survives. The story continues, and Jin Kazama, the son of Kazuya Mishima and Jun Kazama, also joins the Mishima family feud.

Brian Cox, a renowned Scottish actor, tells the story of the Mishima family in a fascinating way. It isn’t the first time Tekken 8 hired a renowned actor. Victor, a new original character who will be making his appearance in Tekken 8 for the first time, is voiced by the legendary Vincent Cassel, a globally renowned French actor.
