This is what Tekken 8 is about
The story of Tekken 8 picks up from the end of Tekken 7, in which Heihachi Mishima was defeated. The focus is now on the battle between father and son: Jin Kazama and Kazuya Mishima. The two are the bearers of the devil gene, which gives them superhuman strength but also fuels their hatred. Their duel will even reduce parts of the city to rubble.
Tekken 8 will also bring back some familiar characters from the series, such as Paul Phoenix, Marshall Law, King, Lars Alexandersson and Jack-8. In addition, Jun Kazama, Jin's mother and Kazuya's former lover, will be playable again after more than 25 years.
