Bandai Namco Entertainment revealed new characters joining Tekken 8 when it was released on January 26, 2024. Devil Jin, Zafina, Leeo Chaolan, and Alisa Bosconovitch are the latest fan-favorite characters announced coming to Tekken 8. In early September, Bandai Namco announced Panda would be coming to the game, but now they revealed gameplay of the character in action.
Here are the new characters joining Tekken 8 with a little more information about them including Panda.
Devil Jin returns as the “Blank Wings of Ruin,” Jin’s demonic side coming from the devil gene in his blood and the embodiment of him living with his sins. Devil Jin’s appearance matches his name, and his fighting skills are beyond human capabilities.
Lee Chaolan fights with Martial Arts, but his true power comes from the Violet Suit, a one-of-a-kind battle suit that uses sophisticated technology and unleashes attacks that reflect his “Silver haired-Demon” persona.
Alisa Bosconovitch is the “Destroying Automaton” developed by the brilliant scientist Dr. Bosconovitch.
Alisa’s fighting skills come from her high-mobility flight suit and her arsenal of technological weaponry.
The “Mystic Stargazer” Zafina brings back her unique fight style rooted in her warrior heritage and her spiritual abilities as a mystical astrologist. Her methods are as old as her lineage, using Ancient Assassination Arts in her attacks.
Panda’s nickname as the “Pretty Protector” comes from her double duty as both Ling Xiaoyu’s pet and bodyguard. She uses Heihachi-Style Advanced Kuma Shin Ken as her fighting style.
That now makes 30 of the 32 fighters officially announced who will make up the game’s full roster. Bandai Namco confirms the last two fighters in the 32-character roster will be revealed on November 2 and November 12.
Tekken 8 will be released on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series XlS, and PC with pre-orders available now.
