Bandai Namco Entertainment America Reveals Tekken 8 is Arriving in January 2024

A release date has finally been revealed for Tekken 8 and it will arrive at the beginning of 2024.

Leading video game publisher and developer Bandai Namco Entertainment America Inc. today announced that TEKKEN™ 8, the upcoming entry in the legendary fighting franchise, is releasing on January 26, 2024. The game is coming exclusively to PlayStation®5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam®.

Today’s reveal showcased Arcade Quest as a completely new mode coming to TEKKEN 8. Arcade Quest is a new single player mode that will prove the ultimate training ground, tapping into the franchise’s roots to introduce a new way to play and polish skills. In this mode, players can create and customize their own avatar and “visit” different arcades to participate in matches designed to improve their play and teach new techniques. As players progress through the story, they will continue to develop and grow stronger along with their avatar, honing their skills against tougher and tougher opponents in a story not too different from how some real players got into esports.

Continuing the regular cadence of TEKKEN 8 character reveals, the trailer announced returning favorites joining the 32-character roster, with Kuma, Leo, Shaheen, Steve, Dragunov, and Yoshimitsu showcasing their updated looks and moves. All the characters in TEKKEN 8 will have deep customization choices, including completely new options, with the possibility to change colors as well as the size and position of accessories, letting players really show their style and bring personal flair to their favorite characters.

Tekken 8 will be released on January 26, 2024.
