Bandai Namco has released a new video featuring Brian Cox, where he gives a recap of the fighting game franchise up to the upcoming Tekken 8. The five-minute video recounts the events of the Tekken franchise, starting from Tekken 1, where Heihachi Mishima drops his son, Kazuya Mishima, from the cliff in an attempt to get rid of the Devil Gene.
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.

The Tekken franchise features one of the longest-running video game stories to date, and the record is honored by Guinness World Records. The first Tekken game came out in 1994, and the story has been ongoing since then and will likely go on for a few more iterations. A story recap to get everyone caught up with Tekken’s story is an excellent move by Bandai Namco.
Tekken 8 is set to launch on 26 January 2024 on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC. The game was also nominated for the Most Anticipated Game award at The Game Awards 2023. If you’re looking to get into Tekken 8, you can download and play the demo, which is completely free on PC and consoles.
