Bandai Namco‘s Tekken 8 is set to launch on January 26. The game’s demo is currently live on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, and PC. The game had suffered a fair share of leaks before its launch, but the entire roster was revealed by November. It is expected that Tekken 8 will introduce four new characters each year, which may or may not include guest characters, as no information regarding that has been revealed yet.
Currently, Tekken 8 features a roster of 32 characters at launch, with each character featuring a movelist of over 100 moves.
