Bandai Namco has spiled the beans on what's next for Tekken 8. Throughout the rest of 2024, players can expect a bunch of free updates, and Lidia has been confirmed as the game's second DLC character. She arrives at some point this summer.

Lidia debuted in Tekken 7 as one of its final DLC fighters. She was quite well liked, featuring an aggressive playstyle and some cool stance-based stuff. She should fit right in.

As for the updates, a big balance patch is out this spring — so that'll be here soon — and in the summer, a new stage called Seaside Resort is dropping, alongside a dedicated photo mode. The latter could be a fantastic addition, given how good the game can look.

Then, in the autumn, a new story chapter's being added, which seems to feature Eddy. 'Online Practice' and 'Ghost vs Ghost' modes have also been mentioned.

There's a lot to look forward to then, but are you hyped for more Tekken 8? Don't drop your combo in the comments section below.
