Trailer shown at EVO hints that Tekken 8 could be coming soon

An incredibly brief trailer revealed during EVO 2022 hints at a new Tekken game. During a fighting game tournament, a clip shows the infamous ending of Kazuya in the original Tekken, who avenged his father Heihachi by throwing him off a cliff. When the camera zooms in on his smile, the shot doesn’t end, it’s a blur, his face is replaced by an old, scarred Kazuya who got red eyes in Tekken 4. “Ready,” it said.

A video less than 30 seconds long isn’t much, but rumors of a remake of the original Tekken and a new sequel have been swirling around for a while. Given that the trailer shows an older version of Kazuya, it’s safe to assume Bandai Namco isn’t hinting at a remake.
