Tekken 8 Character Roster Leak

This weekend marks the second phase of the Tekken 8 Closed Network Test, and this time around, it's available on PC as well as PS5. And in utterly unsurprising fashion, the PC build has already been pulled apart, with players taking a cheeky look inside the application's files in an attempt to learn more about the eventual release.

The headline here is that fans have seemingly found a list of character references, which covers every playable character in the test as well as a handful of fighters who haven't been officially announced for Tekken 8 yet. We doubt these additions will complete the base roster, however.

If you've somehow clicked on this article but you don't want to be spoiled with regards to which characters are mentioned, stop scrolling now!

Here are the currently unannounced characters found in the files:

  • Yoshimitsu
  • Shaheen
  • Raven (seemingly not Master Raven, who was in Tekken 7)
  • Zafina
  • Steve
  • Alisa

Much like the already confirmed roster, this leaked list is made up of returning characters. The inclusion of Yoshimitsu, Steve, and Alisa always seemed inevitable, but it's perhaps a bit of a surprise to see Shaheen and Zafina (supposedly) coming back.

Meanwhile, Raven, as opposed to Tekken 7's Master Raven, makes some sense, seeing as the latter didn't prove to be all that popular.

Are any of your favourite characters included in this apparently leaked list? Who else would you like to see make the cut in Tekken 8? Hurry up and choose a main in the comments section below.
