New Tekken 8 Trailers Introduce “Grandmaster of Drip,” Leroy Smith & “Spirited Peacemaker,” Asuka Kazama

Bandai Namco released new trailers for their tournament fighter Tekken 8, coming to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC at an unknown time.

The “Spirited Peacemaker,” Asuka Kazama, and the “Grandmaster of Drip,” Leroy Smith, have been introduced. The latter is an immensely popular character who debuted in Tekken 7, while the former was first available in Tekken 5, appearing in every mainline title since. Given her last name, her family situation seems like a subject of confusion.

Tekken 8 marks significant growth for the franchise, seeing the return of Jun Kazama and a heavy focus on several story elements. Past grudges will be settled here, with the most iconic being Jin and Kazuya. Further, the visuals have been upgraded to meet modern standards, boasting terrific character models, environments, and textures. We’re undoubtedly looking forward to this ambitious fighter’s release.

We’ll be sure to keep you updated on the release of Tekken 8.
