Tekken 8: What Bandai Namco Studio said
According to Katsuhiro Harada, executive producer and director, Bandai Namco Studio, the trailer is taken directly from the story mode of the game played on PS5 and is not a pre-rendered movie made specifically for the trailer but a real-time rendered footage at 60fps. He, however, added that “some of the effects, dialogue as well as the camera angle is currently being updated and may change when the game launches.”
Tekken 8 will have “newly created playable character models” with the addition of finer graphical details like how water droplets run down a character’s skin.
Harada further added that Tekken 8’ story will focus on the father and son showdown between Kazuya Mishima and Jin Kazama. According to Harada, the developers are working on enhancing the quality of the game even further.
This is just the first reveal of the game and as the development progresses, we expect Bandai Namco to come up with more gameplay and story-related content. Also, there is no release date for the game, not yet.
