  • News The Tekken 8 Closed Beta Test Is Now Live on PS5

    Get ready for the next battle

    The anticipated Closed Beta Test — CBT for short — for Tekken 8 is now live on PS5. As the 'Closed' part of the name suggests, you're only getting into this one if you registered for a code — and then actually got chosen as a participant. Or, if you were already part of the Closed Network Test earlier in the year,...

  • News It's Happening: Legendary Tekken Ball Mode Returns in Tekken 8


    If you were one of the millions of Tekken 3 players back in the 90s, then you'll probably have fond memories of Tekken Ball — a mode that saw two characters use their regular moves smack a beach ball at one another in the hopes of scoring a KO. A truly beloved activity, but one that would never return in any future Tekken title (aside from...

  • News Tekken 8 Release Date Reveal Could Be Closer Than You Think

    PS5 fighter gets rated

    At this point, a release date is really all that Tekken 8 is missing. While it's widely believed that the PS5 fighting game will launch in 2024 — preferably before Evo 2024, which takes place at the end of July — Bandai Namco hasn't been dropping any hints. What's more, the current Tekken World Tour — based around the...

  • Rumour Tekken 8 Beta Could Be Incoming

    Heating up

    An online beta test for Tekken 8 could be coming relatively soon, if a listing on SteamDB is anything to go by (as spotted by Wario64). Up until now, the anticipated brawler has only been playable via select location tests. That is, in-person stations at fighting game events, for example. And although we've been graced with loads of...

  • News Hwoarang Is Ready to Kick You to Bits In Tekken 8

    Another Tekken 8 character reveal shocker: Hwoarang is back! And he still likes kicking everything in sight! The South Korean fighter — who's been a fixture of the series since Tekken 3 — boasts his familiar taekwondo style, although at a glance, it looks even more kick-heavy this time around.

  • News Lili Flips Her Way Back into Tekken 8

    Don't get salty

    Given that she's the eternal rival of Asuka — who's already been confirmed as a returning character — we should have known that Lili would be back for Tekken 8. The heiress who loves to flip and kick her way to victory is the game's latest reveal, and she looks great. Much like the other characters we've seen up until this point,...

  • News Tekken 8 Confirms Leroy, Asuka Have Made the Cut

    What's good, sugar?

    We honestly thought that the Tekken 8 character trailers were over — at least for a little while — but no, Bandai Namco has just dropped another two at Evo Japan. Said trailers confirm that Leroy Smith and Asuka Kazama will return. There was something of a question mark over both characters making the cut, but for very...
