Report: Tekken 8 Partial Roster Leaked via Datamine

Tekken 8 Roster

One of Bandai Namco’s next big hitters will be Tekken 8, another chapter in the legendary fighting series. Many players are already eager for the upcoming Unreal Engine 5-powered brawler, but as it happens with every game of the genre, there’s a natural excitement surrounding the fighters that will be up to the challenge. But don’t worry, we got you covered: a big part of the Tekken 8 roster leaked through Cheat Engine, a freeware tool that is mostly used for cheating in computer games.

So, let’s see right now the list with the names of the fighters that may already be confirmed to appear in Tekken 8:

Tekken 8 Partial Roster via Datamine:

  • Paul Phoenix
  • Marshall Law
  • King
  • Hwoarang
  • Ling Xiaoyu
  • Jin Kazama
  • Bryan Fury
  • Kazuya Mishima
  • Jack-8
  • Asuka Kazama
  • Lili
  • Lars Alexandersson
  • Claudio Serafino
  • Nina Williams
  • Leroy Smith
  • Jun Kazama
  • Yoshimitsu
  • Shaheen
  • Raven (Default Type A)
  • Zafina (Default Type A)
  • Steve (Default Type A)
  • Alisa (Default Type A)

As any player familiar with the Tekken series knows, there are some recognizable faces in this list. However, that doesn’t mean it will be the final roster for Tekken 8, as this leak comes from a recent build and the game is yet far from its expected release date sometime in 2024. You can easily spot the absence of Kuma, and since franchise director Katsuhiro Harada promised a larger roster than the one from Street Fighter 6 at the time of launch, those names are bound to grow.

Tekken 8 is in development for PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S. It will feature crossplay and rollback netcode for a smoother experience. The game had a closed network test running from July 21 through July 24, but there’s no official release date yet.

“partial” because they will charge 30 quid every five months for 3 or 4 other characters at a time lol. Utter trash and I will never be buying a Namco fighting game ever again.

Why Alissa? Ome of the most annoying, spam characters in fighting games and they keep bringing her back. Where’s Dragunov?
