Discover Azucena, the new character making her appearance in TEKKEN 8. Raven also comes back to the roster.
TEKKEN 8 is getting a completely new character to join the series. Meet Azucena, an all-new character created for TEKKEN 8. Raven, the UN secret intelligence agent, also returns to the game after appearances in TEKKEN 5 and TEKKEN 6.
Known as the “Coffee Queen”, Azucena is an MMA fighter from Peru. She is the latest heir in the Ortiz family line, a family running a Peruvian coffee plantation. She decided to compete in The King of Iron Fist Tournament to promote the Ortiz Farm. Azucena fights using movement based on Mixed Martial Arts, while incorporating some slightly unconventional techniques, such as the Liberador, where she shifts into a stance in which she doesn’t block her opponents but dodges their attacks by instinct.

His style mixing ninjutsu and powerful strikes, along with his unique “Soul Field” stance, will give players a versatile arsenal, using clones and teleportation to master the rhythm of the battlefield.
