Discover TEKKEN 8 final launch character, Reina, the enigmatic Mishima Polytechnical School student

TEKKEN 8 initial roster is now complete with the announcement of Reina, the last launch character. Reina, the Purple Lightning, is using her lightning quick moves to overwhelm her opponents. She is surrounded by mystery as the only known fact about her is that she is a student at the Mishima Polytechnical School. She also seems to have a very particular interest in Jin, especially in fighting him.


The game’s launch roster will count 32 characters with a storyline centered around the fight of Jin Kazama and Kazuya Mishima. Along those two characters, players will be able to play some fan-favourites like Paul Phoenix and Yoshimitsu, returning characters such as Jun Kazama and Raven, and the three brand-new additions: Azucena, Victor Chevalier and Reina. In TEKKEN 8, all characters’ models have been completely remade from the ground up, making the most of the latest generation of hardware and providing a better experience for players.

TEKKEN 8 will launch on 26 January 2024 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and PC, using the power of this generation of consoles to offer a visually stunning experience along with a vision promoting aggressiveness and spectacular battle action.
