Bandai Namco has just unveiled four more fighters that are joining Tekken 8’s playable roster. Devil Jin, Zafina, Alisa Bosconovich, and Lee Chaolan all enter the battle as part of the game’s launch roster.
Through IGN, the company released the latest gameplay trailer showcasing the four new contenders.
This new trailer provides another glimpse at all of the currently revealed combatants. From Kazuya to Dragunov and Kuma, we see quick intros and cinematics for everyone on the roster.
The big draw for this trailer, though, is the “5 returning legends,” as described in the showcase. Panda, Zafina, Devil Jin, Alisa, and Lee are all shown as the newest characters to be revealed, though we did see Panda a couple of times previously in very brief glimpses.
Bandai Namco hasn’t shown their full hand here with this reveal, but we do get quick looks at each new fighter. Essentially, things are drilled down to just a swift peek at part of each character’s fight intro and a small portion of their Rage Art. As far as the hard-hitting, cinematic super attacks go, Zafina can be seen crushing her foes with a giant demonic hand, while Lee tosses a grenade at the opponent that explodes into a large rose.
Alisa chainsaws her opponent up in the air, and Devil Jin’s is incredibly detailed as he captures his victim in a ton of chains and slashes at them with an energy blade that emanates from his hand.
With the latest reveals, Tekken 8’s launch roster is up to 30 fighters. From the looks of it, it seems that Bandai Namco isn’t done unveiling characters just yet either.
The trailer concludes with a look at the current list of announced characters, and two more slots open up after the latest reveals. Apparently, we can expect to see the next character revealed on November 2, and another will follow on November 12.

Tekken 8 is set for release on January 26, 2024. It will be available on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
