The main story mode featured in Bandai Namco Entertainment’s upcoming entry in the Tekken fighting game series, Tekken 8, is much larger than the story mode in Tekken 7.

Speaking during an interview with Famitsu, Tekken 8 Game Director Kohei Ikeda and Marketing Producer Naoya Yasuda shared some exciting information, including the details regarding its Main Story mode.

Ikeda mentioned that the game had an enormous budget to the point where it shocked the development team. He stated that the Main Story mode in Tekken 8 is much bigger than the one seen in the previous entry, Tekken 7, and is separate from the Arcade Quest Mode. He described the Arcade Quest mode as an role-playing game inspired Tutorial mode. The mode will offer unique features and elements for players to discover. He wasn’t able to go into further detail, as there is certain information that is under wraps for a future reveal.

On the topic of customization, Ikeda stated that players can customize their character’s shoes individually. Additionally, thy can adjust accessory positions and sizes, though this purely for aesthetics so as to ensure that the gameplay remains unaffected. Players can also swap around certain outfits between characters who have some affiliation or rivalry.

Regarding the tutorial in Tekken 8, it was mentioned that all 32 characters will have their own individual tutorials in order to ensure accessibility for players of all skill levels. In addition, it was said that the tutorials are user-friendly, covering basic and advanced game mechanics comprehensively.

Tekken 8 is an upcoming fighting game co-developed by Bandai Namco Studios and Arika and published by Bandai Namco Entertainment. It is the eighth main and tenth overall installment in the Tekken series, scheduled for release on January 26, 2024, for PlayStation 5, Windows, and Xbox Series X and Series S. The game’s Producer, Katsuhiro Harada, has revealed that it will prioritize aggressiveness in its gameplay. It will introduce a new “Heat” gauge system, while retaining some features from Tekken 7, such as Rage system-based attacks. The Rage Drive has been separated and reworked into a Heat system-based move called Heat Smash. This change reverts the Rage State to its prior usage, allowing access to Rage Art once again, similar to the Fated Retribution version of Tekken 7.
