A recent leak has revealed an impressive roster of 36 playable characters for Bandai Namco’s highly anticipated Tekken 8 game.
The leaked roster includes classic characters like Paul Phoenix and Kazuya Mishima, and the game’s producer has teased exciting features like single-player modes and intriguing storylines.
In September 2022, Bandai Namco officially announced Tekken 8 during a PlayStation State of Play Livestream. Although the exact release date is still pending confirmation, the game is planned for launch via Steam on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC. Additionally, in February, Bandai Namco provided a 36-minute gameplay breakdown, showcasing features like the heating system, rage system, and recovery gauge, contributing to the game’s growing popularity among the gaming community.
Meanwhile, just recently, a list of unannounced characters, such as Shaheen, Raven, Zafina, Yoshimitsu, Steve, and Alisa, was discovered in the game files as unplayable through the use of Cheat Engine.
However, it’s essential to remember that this is probably not the full roster, as series staples like Kuma, present in all previous games, are absent. The developers have indicated that the base roster will be much more extensive than that of Tekken 7 and current competitors, suggesting that these characters were likely only tested in this specific build. This was hinted at by the user, Trem45, on Reddit.
Apart from these, leakers have hinted at a complete roster of 36 characters apart from these above ones. Below are the 36 characters that have been reportedly leaked as part of the Tekken 8 roster:
1. Paul Phoenix
2. Marshall Law
5. Ling Xiaoyu
6. Jin Kazama
7. Bryan Fury
8. Kazuya Mishima
10. Asuka Kazama

28. Lee Chaolan
29. Lei Wulong
30. Leo Kliesen

(Note: This information is based on the alleged data mine leak and should be treated as speculative until officially confirmed by Bandai Namco.)
Before the release of Tekken 8, the game’s producer, Katsuhiro Harada, teased some exciting features. He mentioned that the game will include single-player playable modes, extra modes, and intriguing storylines. Although specific details were not disclosed then, Harada assured fans that more information would be shared before the game’s launch. He emphasized the importance of delivering the players a complete and valuable gaming experience.
Tekken 8 is one of the most anticipated entries in the Tekken series, developed collaboratively by Bandai Namco Studios and Arika. Serving as the eighth main installment and overall tenth entry in the franchise, the game is scheduled to release on PlayStation 5, Windows, and Xbox Series X|S platforms, arriving earlier than initially anticipated.
Thus, fans are eager for the game’s release to indulge in gruesome battles of the Tekken universe. What are your thoughts about this latest leak? Let us know in the comments section and on our social media handles.
