Tekken 8: Bryan Fury’s Reveal Trailer Leaked By Bandai Namco
Earlier today, Bryan Fury’s intro, reveal, and gameplay trailer was leaked on Twitter… By Bandai Namco. It was posted on the Bandai Namco Europe Twitter profile, and then promptly deleted, but not before it was scalped and posted online. It was a brief but impactful slip-up that has drawn the attention of Katsuhiro Harada, the producer of Tekken 8.
There were expectations that Bryan Fury would be revealed later today, during the closing moments of the Combo Break 2023 tournament. In recent weeks, tidbits of information have been pulled from the project, from a leaked starting screen to information that Tekken 8 will feature cross-platform play and rollback network, which fans have been seeking for years.
Fists of (Bryan) Fury
On YouTube, the 2-minute trailer showcasing Bryan Fury in all his majesty is doing the rounds, despite Bandai Namco Europe having deleted the original Tweet that contained the trailer:
In a follow-up Tweet that has now been deleted, Katsuhiro Harada explained how he’d warned the team years ago ‘not to post on a timer’.
Presently, Tekken 8 doesn’t have a confirmed release date, but it’s expected to drop between late 2023 and early 2024. If these leaks have started as they mean to go on, it’s likely we’ll have much more content creeping out from within the project before then, though.
Reportedly, Tekken 8 will be a much easier game for new players to get the hang of – regardless of the fighter that they’re controlling. Of course, they’re almost all nuanced, but in Tekken 8, there are all-new practice mode features designed to really show newcomers the ropes.
