Tekken 8 Hwoarang

Today Bandai Namco revealed another returning fighter who will be playable in the upcoming fighting game Tekken 8. 

We get to see Hwoarang in action. The Korean Taekwondo fighter also known as "the Blood Talon" is back, likely predictably, given that he has not missed an installment since his debut in Tekken 3.


As usual, the announcement came accompanied by a trailer, which you can enjoy below. 

Tekken 8 is coming for PC, Xbox Series X|S, and PS5 and doesn't have a release date or window just yet. We do know that the game will support both Crossplay and Rollback Netcode, as recently revealed by chief producer Katsuhiro Harada himself. 

A few months ago, Bandai Namco hosted an extensive presentation at the Tekken World Tour 2022 finals, explaining how the gameplay will evolve from Tekken 7 thanks to a handful of new mechanics. 

If you'd like to see some more really spiffy character trailers, we also recently saw those dedicated to Lili De Rochefort, Asuka Kazama, Leroy SmithLing XiaoyuJun Kazama, Jack-8Lars AlexanderssonKingMarshall Law, Paul PhoenixJin KazamaKazuya Mishima, and Nina Williams.
