Veteran fighter Paul Phoenix was one of the first confirmed characters for Tekken 8, and now you can gawk at his brutal blows in the game's latest character trailer. We must admit, we're loving the improved facial animations in this sequel so far, and Paul's classic techniques — including the dreaded death fist — somehow look more punishing than ever before.
This fresh trailer also gives us a glimpse of a new stage, which seems to be set in some kind of military base. Tekken 8's a looker, no question.
But there's one thing we're not sold on yet, and that's Paul's hairdo. Older Tekken fans will know that Paul previous let his hair down in Tekken 4, but at least back then, it was still a rugged cut. In Tekken 8, it just looks too...neat and tidy. It's like he's wearing someone else's hair.
It's worth mentioning that you'll apparently still be able to equip Paul with his classic skyscraper style through the game's customisation options — but man, we wish it was the default.
How do you think Paul is looking in Tekken 8? Let your own hair down in the comments section below.
Looks like Sammy's profile/staff pic 😎
@Shepherd_Tallon I've changed it! 😂
Look, you get to a certain age and what used to stand up proud and tall is now a little more droopy.
His hair looks rediculous. Looks like an old has been trying to look cool.... Ironically, just like my profile picture 🤔😂
@get2sammyb Don't make me start a petition to have you change it back 😂
@Matroska: I see what you did there.🤭
Who is this guy? Never seen him before. 😂
He's run out of hair gel.
I love the thought of a brick wall being built before all his fights just for him to smash through it.
@Futureshark Haha, finally forgot to renew his hair gel subscription.
Love the tekken games even though I’m not a massive fighting game fan
Just hope we get the ability to use the older ost like we did in 7
Can’t beat the original 3’s soundtrack.
It just looks bad...
Tekken 8 is looking really weird,im not optimistic,Harada get your s..t together
There's Something About Mary
whats wrong with them. thats not a good character design hahahaha
Hahaha it looks like cat died on his head.
it ain’t the 80s anymore , time for paul to try and get some dreads
Hmm... Paul's fighting style just looks a bit dull. I swear he used to be better than this? Doesn't even have his signature hair style to make him look more interesting!
What mousse is he using that’s some hold
Paul was always one of my mains. Glad that he is back.
To be fair, crap hair is popular with the young folk these days! Mullets run rampant here in Australia.
I don't think it looks that bad tbh, his classic haircut is goofy af to me 🍟
Looks like MacGruber on steroids.
