Tekken 8 will be here before we know it. The anticipated fighter is out on the 26th January, and if you need to refuel your hype, we'd recommend watching this highlights video from the recent Tekken 8 Evo Showcase.

The event gathered multiple Tekken 7 Evo champions together for a winner-stays-on tournament. The likes of Knee, JDCR, Saint, and the seemingly unstoppable Arslan Ash all took part, playing Tekken 8 live on stage for the first time.

Evidently, our competitors had spent a lot of time with the Tekken 8 beta tests, as they're able to pull off some crazy combos and advanced movement. All in all, the matches ended up being a perfect advertisement for the game, showing it off at a pro level. There's serious potential here, and ultimately, the fighter just looks like fantastic fun to actually play (although newcomer Azucena probably needs a nerf).
