Bandai Namco hosted a huge Tekken 8 presentation at Tokyo Game Show, which basically gives us an overview of the entire game. It features gameplay footage from the story mode — which sees Jin and Kazuya duke it out over the fate of the world — full-blown matches from the latest build, and information on loads of different game modes, like the single-player Arcade Quest, Super Ghost Battle, and, of course, Tekken Ball.
The presentation also confirms a number of smaller details, particularly to do with tutorials, training mode, and replays. Without a doubt, this looks like the most welcoming gateway into Tekken yet, and one genius idea in particular is being highlighted on social media.
When you're watching your fight replays back, you can actually rewind the action and, for ten seconds, take control of your character in order to see what you could have done better, or differently. This has the potential to be a bit of a game-changer when it comes to learning Tekken at a higher level.
The aforementioned Super Ghost Battles sound crazy, too. Using an AI model that can learn patterns of play from you or anyone else, you can challenge the 'ghosts' of yourself or other players. Again, this could turn out to be an amazing way of learning specific character matchups, or the deeper game in general.
