Bandai Namco Canceled Games

Bandai Namco has revealed a number of new characters for the upcoming release of Tekken 8.

In a new trailer titled “The Return of Legends”, Tekken 8 will see Devil Jin, Zafina, Alisa Bosconovich, Lee Chaolan, and Panda join the game’s roster.

Details on each character are below, courtesy of Bandai Namco:

Devil Jin
Devil Jin returns as the “Blank Wings of Ruin,” Jin’s demonic side coming from the devil gene in his blood and the embodiment of him living with his sins. Devil Jin’s appearance matches his name, and his fighting skills are beyond human capabilities.
Lee Chaolan
Lee Chaolan fights with Martial Arts, but his true power comes from the Violet Suit, a one-of-a-kind battle suit that uses sophisticated technology and unleashes attacks that reflect his “Silver haired-Demon” persona.
Alisa Bosconovitch
Alisa Bosconovitch is the “Destroying Automaton” developed by the brilliant scientist Dr. Bosconovitch. 
Alisa’s fighting skills come from her high-mobility flight suit and her arsenal of technological weaponry.
The “Mystic Stargazer” Zafina brings back her unique fight style rooted in her warrior heritage and her spiritual abilities as a mystical astrologist. Her methods are as old as her lineage, using Ancient Assassination Arts in her attacks.
Panda’s nickname as the “Pretty Protector” comes from her double duty as both Ling Xiaoyu’s pet and bodyguard. She uses Heihachi-Style Advanced Kuma Shin Ken as her fighting style.

Tekken 8 launches January 26 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. Let us know what you think of the new Tekken 8 characters in the comments below.
