After Tekken 7 Release, What The Fans Are Expecting To Get Tekken 8

Tekken 8 is possibly one of the most speculated games now which is quite an enigma. Long being a cult favorite, the Tekken series has successfully hit its target garnering numerous game buffs in the process, ever since the game was introduced in 1994. 2017 will witness another mind-blowing Tekken game (touted to be the ninth installment).

After the arcade version in 2015, and the updated version in 2016, serious gaming gurus now cannot wait anymore for yet another version that is rolling out for PC and consoles. But here we are more concerned about whether fans will be capable of getting their hands on yet another main entry under the name Tekken 8!


Tekken 7: Gameplay

Tekken 7 has been a wild hit ever since the game was released in 2005, with the new version launched on June 2, 2017. For platforms, the game is playable on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. It has been three years since the game was released in the Japanese arcade, so it logical for developers to balance the closure with perfection. In the graphics aspects, Tekken 7 looks perfect powering the Unreal Engine 4 offered by detailed characters as well as the dynamic environment. As for the devs, they are sure of the fact that the game consists of the most tightly integrated stories. But that’s not the ultimate reason for fans to get their hands on the game. With an inclusion of a traditional Arcade Mode, alongside Treasure Mode, the gameplay gives you an opportunity to pit against an endless gauntlet of opponents along with chances of unlocking the clothing with an addition of earning in-game currency. At the release, the game includes a roster of 36 fighters, including 10 entirely new in the franchise. The most surprising addition to Tekken 7 does not only make you a third person observer but also strips off most of the UI of the game for an essential training mode rather than the full-fledged game.

Tekken 8: When can we expect?

After Tekken 7, fans now want to move on with another full-fledged game under the Tekken series, perhaps Tekken 8? But as said earlier, Tekken 8 comes to us as an enigma; we cannot really expect the game to roll out anytime sooner. Thus, we take a stab for Tekken 8 release date at least not before 2018.

In conclusion, we can say that the developers will get a chance to explore yet another Tekken world with a new story arc if at all Tekken 8 happens.
