Bandai Namco has shared just a glimpse of an upcoming Tekken project.

On stage at EVO 2022, after the Tekken 7 Grand Finals, Bandai Namco shared a trailer for its next Tekken 7 update. At the conclusion of a trailer, they showed the iconic Tekken cutscene of Kazuya Mishima throwing his father, Heihachi Mishima off a cliff.

At the point when the cutscene zooms in on Kazuya’s face, it instantly swaps from 1994’s PlayStation version of Kazuya to a very modern-looking version of the character. “Get Ready” then appears on the screen, before the trailer fades to black. You can skip to the 1:40 mark in the video below to watch the teaser.

Ready your fists for more 👊

Series director Katsuhiro Harada briefly showed up on the official EVO stream, but didn’t elaborate at all on the tease. While we don’t know for sure just yet, it’s probably safe to assume that this teaser is pointing towards Tekken 8. However, the teaser explicitly used footage from the original Tekken, so there’s a chance it could be a remake or reboot of the series. There’s nothing official from Bandai Namco just yet on what this project is, so we’ll just have to wait and see.

Tekken 7 originally released in 2017, and has received a ton of DLC support since launch. We gave the game a 9.5 in our Tekken 7 review, saying the game, “strikes a fine balance between accessibility to series newcomers and retaining much of its technical traditions.
