Capcom shared a little teaser of Tekken 8 at Evo 2022. This clip shows Kazuya carrying Heihachi to the edge of a cliff and laying him on his side, before smiling at the camera.
The scene then cuts to a close-up of a new model of Kazuya doing the same smile, before the teaser tells us all to “get ready.” You can see it for yourself at the end of the clip below.

This brief preview of things to come was then quickly re-shared by The Game Awards Twitter account.
Putting two and two together, many fans are now assuming Tekken 8 will be fully unveiled at The Game Awards 2022.
Earlier this year, it was revealed that Tekken 7 is now the best-selling game in the series.
As of June, it has sold 9 million copies worldwide, with the series as a whole selling 53 million copies. I’m not piss Tekken!
