Tekken 8 Leaked Trailer Officially Confirms Returning ‘Wild’ Character

It seems Harada is channeling his inner Bryan Fury today.

A new Tekken 8 leaked trailer has inadvertently confirmed a returning character with a wild side.

Tekken 8 Leaked Trailer Released ‘Accidentally’

Bandai Namco Entertainment has been consistent with its new trailers for its upcoming fighting video game sequel, but this time, it was an accidental mistake on its end. The company admitted to the Tekken 8 leaked trailer ahead of its official release schedule, which revealed early the new character that will join the ever-growing roster. It was Bryan Fury, the crazy android/cyborg who just grunts and laughs when fighting and squashing his enemies to dust.

Director Pissed at Leakers

This has particularly upset Tekken 8 Director Katsuhiro Harada on his personal Twitter account, which the post in question has now been deleted. According to those who have seen the post (screenshot), it read “What the xxxx Bandai Namco Euro,” Harada’ said. “That’s why I warned you years ago not to post on a timer. Well, I’m going home now, thanks! Ha ha ha.” This slip-up pissed him off because they planned to reveal this trailer near the end of the Combo Break Tournament scheduled today.

Producer Apologizes to Everyone

Tekken 8 Producer Michael Murray posted on Twitter to apologize to Harada and the fans for the oversight. He also apologized to the development team who gave up weekends to work on this new trailer.

Tekken 8 Trailer Features Harbinger of Chaos Bryan Fury

The new and final Tekken 8 trailer of Bryan Fury was released recently focusing on this wild fight that craves violence and destruction. According to the video description, he was once a cop in his human life but was transformed into a psychotic cyborg. He is officially a cyborg zombie and first appeared in Tekken 3. His moves are particularly heavy, quick, and have pinpoint accuracy due to his cybernetic implants.

Bryan is as Wild as Ever

Bryan returns with his half-naked look with vast amounts of ammunition wrapped around his arms. It might be a statement saying that his fists are “explosive”. Also, when he wins a fight, he fires a chaingun around and when it gets empty, he throws it onto the audience. Wild indeed.

Release Window Still in the Air

Tekken 8 has been releasing trailers left and right, but Bandai Namco has not shared a release window even now. The roster is still growing and probably that is the reason for not revealing it now. It is possible that the roster is going to be huge, probably bigger than the default number on Tekken 7 and might be bigger than the completed one later. Probably, the game will be launched by the end of this year, November to December 2023 or early January 2023 to avoid the launches of its competitors, Street Fighter 6 which is next month and the newly announced Mortal Kombat 1, September 19, 2023.

Tekken 8 adds the Harbinger of Chaos, Bryan Fury, to the roster. No official release date yet, but it is coming to PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S.
