Kuma has long been something of a joke character in the Tekken series — a literal bear who (mostly) stands on two legs. However, it really feels like Tekken 8 is trying to make Kuma cool — and we're 100% on board. Dripped out in a bandana and Heihachi's old martial arts uniform, the bear's looking like a beast.

Kuma's also packing some crazy new moves, including a wind god fist and demon breath. Clearly, he's inherited much more than his master's iconic clothing. And to top it all off, Kuma has a unique intro sequence with Panda, the love of his life. Perfect.

Are you a Kuma fan? Is his fresh sense of style enough to tempt you into trying him? Pull out the salmon in the comments section below.
