Why Tekken 8 needs to happen

There is no question whatsoever ever that Tekken 7 was one of the greatest fighting games to have emerged from the 10’s decade. Ever since, its release back in ‘15 the game has received nothing but great reviews from various critics and gaming publications. Almost everything about Tekken 7 ruled including the gameplay, graphics, storytelling along with top notch voice acting. The cutscenes in Tekken 7 looked like something you would see from a live action movie; also the EDM soundtrack added to the overall atmosphere of each battle within especially as it related to the Story Mode. The final battle between Kazuya and Heihachi Mishima was two decades in the making; especially after Heihachi tried to kill Kazuya in Tekken 2 game back 1995. Kazuya managed to gain his revenge on Heihachi by throwing him into a volcano similar to how his father did him in Tekken 2. However, the true ending for Tekken 7 ended on a cliffhanger with Jin Kazama setting his sights on destroying Kazuya. While had believed that Tekken 7 was going to be the final installment within the series there are many people who believe otherwise. Tekken 7 was far too successful on a commercial level for it to not have a sequel. In fact, it was reported back in ‘21 that Tekken 7 had reached over 8 million copies in worldwide sales; across multiple platforms including the PS4, Xbox One and Microsoft Windows.

Also, its very likely that the Mishima Zaibatsu and the G Corporation are still at war with each other; especially following the presumed death of Heihachi Mishima at the hands of Kazuya. If Tekken 8 does become a reality than Jin Kazama is likely to play a bigger role in the main story opposed to Tekken 7. For the past few years Bandi Namco has made no announcements about an upcoming Tekken 8 game. However, it would not be easy for Bandi Namco to follow the quality or the success of Tekken 7.
