Tekken 8 Dragunov Reveal & Gameplay Trailer

Sergei Dragunov is a user of Commando Sambo and is feared for his alias “The White Angel of Death,” a name he earned through his sheer and overwhelming combat prowess. While the world was embroiled in the armed conflict between the Mishima Zaibatsu and G Corp, Dragunov joined the King of Iron Fist Tournament with a certain goal in mind. However, midway through the tournament, the tournament’s organizer, Heihachi Mishima, goes missing, bringing the competition to a halt.

Dragunov returns home, and in recognition of his dedication to his work, is granted an extended leave for the first time in his life and is known for his extreme work ethic—so much so that it is rumored he works even in his sleep. However, upon returning to his room, it’s as if he has a spring in his step. In his study, he opens a safe and removes an ancient notebook with an eerie cover, which he begins to examine. The usually cold-hearted commander seems to be in high spirits as he writes. From his unsettling manner, it is clear that it can only be one thing—a list known and feared as “The Angel of Death’s List.”

However, in reality, it is nothing more than a bucket list of things that Dragunov has been saving up to do when he finally gets some extended free time. He reads over the notebook, humming a tune and nodding in apparent satisfaction. After reflecting upon his younger self, Dragunov chooses a task that will be particularly difficult to achieve. With that new aim in mind, he sets out to accomplish his goal.

Tekken 8 will come out on January 26, 2024, for the PlayStation 5, PC (via Steam), Xbox Series X, and Series S. Also, don’t forget to subscribe and follow their official social media channels as weekly trailers will be uploaded.
