Bandai Namco revealed the next four fighters set to join the eventual full roster of 32 when Tekken 8 releases. This brings the total revealed fighter count to 30, with the final two character reveals coming on November 2 and November 12. Fan-favorite character Devil Jin is one of the four characters revealed today, alongside Zafina, Lee Chaolan, and Alisa Bosconovitch.
Four new Fighters join Tekken 8
Devil Jin returns as the “Blank Wings of Ruin,” Jin’s demonic side coming from the devil gene in his blood and the embodiment of him living with his sins. Devil Jin’s appearance matches his name, and his fighting skills are beyond human capabilities.
The “Mystic Stargazer” Zafina brings back her unique fight style rooted in her warrior heritage and her spiritual abilities as a mystical astrologist. Her methods are as old as her lineage, using Ancient Assassination Arts in her attacks.
Lee Chaolan fights with Martial Arts, but his true power comes from the Violet Suit, a one-of-a-kind battle suit that uses sophisticated technology and unleashes attacks that reflect his “Silver haired-Demon” persona.
Alisa Bosconovitch is the “Destroying Automaton” developed by the brilliant scientist Dr. Bosconovitch. Alisa’s fighting skills come from her high-mobility flight suit and her arsenal of technological weaponry.
Tekken 8 is scheduled to release on January 26, 2024 on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S.
