Jin Kazama unleashes the devil in latest Tekken 8 trailer

Devils and angel wings

Bandai Namco dropped a new trailer for Tekken 8 this morning, spotlighting another key character in the universe, Jin Kazama. The latest Tekken 8 teaser is all about the longtime series lead and his moves, both new and old.

As Jin says in his new character trailer, “strength isn’t everything.” But he is looking pretty dang strong in the Tekken 8 engine. It looks like Jin is incorporating his devil powers within his usual fighting style for some devastating hits.

It’s an interesting look for Jin that looks even better in the Tekken 8 arena. Tekken has usually impressed with its graphics, and that’s held true for everything we’ve seen so far of the next entry in the series. Everything from the electric punches and slow-motion zoom-ins to Jin’s best “One-Winged Angel” pose looks fantastic already.

Fist meets fate

Bandai has been drip-feeding out more and more characters from Tekken 8, though we’ve mostly seen the usual suspects. Trailers have spotlighted other mainstays like Kazuya Mishima and Nina Williams.

Still, even the familiar can be exciting when it looks as solid as Tekken 8 does. It’s hard to get a gameplay gauge just from video, but it’s looking like the next year or so could be a big one for fighting games. Street Fighter 6 is on the horizon, Project L is in development, and apparently Mortal Kombat 12 is happening too.

Tekken 8 still doesn’t have a firm launch locked in, but it could be quite a time for fans of virtual scrappin’ as all these new combatants enter the ring.
