Who Are The Returning Characters in Tekken 8?
According to the latest trailer released around the first day of November, 4 returning and iconic Tekken Characters will be added to the roster of Tekken 8, and below are their full bio and character designs:
An android created by Dr. Bosconovitch as a bodyguard for Jin Kazama. Her design itself is modeled after Bosconovitch’s own lost daughter. Her fighting capabilities are extremely high. She can perform attacks with high mobility using arm-mounted missiles and thrusters. After the death of Heihachi, she is seen alongside Lars on the rooftops of a destroyed city and is set on teaming up with Jin to take down Kazuya.
The adopted son of Heihachi Mishima was raised to be a rival for Kazuya Mishima. After abandoning the Zaibatsu for various reasons, he ended up idling his time away in the Bahamas as a manager of his own company… until a certain event disturbed his permanent vacation and entwined his fate with the Zaibatsu once again. After the death of Heihachi, he is seen alongside Lars and Alisa on the rooftops of a destroyed city and is set on teaming up with Jin to take down Kazuya.
Zafina is a member of a family that has protected the royal graves since ancient times. The two evil stars that shook the world, Jin Kazama and Kazuya Mishima, made it impossible for Zafina to prevent Azazel’s resurrection. Azazel was seemingly defeated by Lars Alexandersson and Jin Kazama. However, Azazel’s just barely escaped destruction in spirit form. Zafina sensed this and succeeded in sealing Azazel’s spirit in her own body via a ritual passed down by her clan. She then approaches the Archers of Sirius and decides to team up with them in hunting down the rest of these so-called demons.
Devil Jin is known to be Jin’s devil form after being consumed by the effects of the Devil Gene. Knowing that the world will end, Jin must face his inner demons as he readies himself to defeat Kazuya at the cost of his sanity. Will his strength be enough to overcome the devil within, or will the devil take over and wreak havoc once more?
