The latest instalment in the blockbuster Tekken franchise is Tekken 8. Watch the first trailer below if you haven’t already!
The Tekken franchise features one of the most extensive game narratives. The series covers the Mishima family members beginning with the release of Tekken in 1994. The story, which began with Kazuya murdering his father, Heihachi, has evolved into an epic about generational trauma, which is resolved through a flurry of fighting action. Tekken 8 was initially teased at the conclusion of the Evolution Championships back in early August. The final cinematic of the first Tekken served as the teaser’s introduction. Kazuya Mishima is seen throwing his father off a cliff in the scene. As Kazuya grinned into the camera, the scene changed to Kazuya in high-quality contemporary graphics, with the Tekken announcer urging viewers to “Get Ready.” This makes us really excited to witness this new action-packed Tekken game. The predecessor to Tekken 8, Tekken 7, saw the Mishima Conflict come to a head between Heihachi, Kazuya, and Kazuya’s son Jin, and the story is expected to continue in Tekken 8. In case you didn’t know, the Tekken series holds the record for having the longest-running video game story. According to some of our sources, Tekken 8 may be the conclusion of this protracted saga. But let’s go back and talk about the platforms and release dates for Tekken 8.
Is there a Tekken 8 Nintendo Switch release date?
Tekken 8 is scheduled to be released in 2023 for PC (via Steam), PlayStation 5, and Xbox One consoles. As far as the Nintendo Switch is concerned, there is no official release confirmed by developer Bandai Namco. If we see the past trend of Tekken games, Tekken 6 and Tekken 7 were not released for the Nintendo Switch console, and this trend will probably remain the same. However, the success of the game could motivate the developers to let Tekken 8 make its way to the Nintendo Switch.
