For those unfamiliar, Tekken (Tekken) is a Japanese media property based on a series of fighting video and arcade games created by Bandai Namco Studios and released by Bandai Namco Entertainment. Both cinematic and literary versions are part of the franchise.
Players take on the roles of various characters as they compete in the King of Iron Fist Tournament, hosted by Mishima Zaibatsu, to seize control of the company. The series’ central conflict centers on the rivalry between the Mishima family, while players also delve into other characters’ motivations as they attempt to take the helm at the Zaibatsu.
The game mechanics revolve around hand-to-hand combat between you and an enemy, including blocks, throws, escapes, and ground fighting. The series eventually included combinations and special moves, with characters able to stage break arenas. Tekken was groundbreaking since it was among the first fighting games to use fully-realized 3D graphics.
Players choose a character from a lineup and fight hand-to-hand. Traditional fighting games use buttons to indicate attack power, such as punch or kick. Tekken gives each limb control. Blocks, throws, escapes, and ground fighting are included.
Original Tekken only allowed manual blocking. From Tekken 2, characters automatically block when not moving or acting, nicknamed “neutral guard.” Standing or retreating characters automatically block high and intermediate attacks, while crouching characters duck high attacks and block low ones.
Normal mid-attacks hit crouching players. However, some can be deflected by standing and crouching neutral guards. Pressing rearward gives the player an “active guard” that can survive combination blows that ordinarily penetrate the neutral guard. Some characters have a “push button to block” parries and reversals.
The ability to sidestep into the foreground or background was introduced in Tekken 3. Tekken 3 and later games shortened recovery time after being knocked down and offered characters rolls to recover rapidly, allowing the player to get back into the fight more quickly while rolling.
Tekken 4 added genuine 3D movement in arenas with uneven ground, obstacles, and walls. 3D gameplay rewards outmaneuvering the opponent with destructive side and back throws and evasive sidestep assaults.
Walled and limitless venues replaced uneven terrain in Tekken 5. Tekken 6 retains most of Tekken 5’s design but adds a “Rage” mode that increases damage when a character’s low vitality meter. “Bound” hits offer combo extensions by grounding a flying opponent. Tekken 6 contains destructible flooring and walls that open up new fighting zones.
Tekken Tag Tournament 2 has these characteristics plus a new stage break (“balcony breaks,” a combination of floor and wall breaks where characters will go through a breakable wall and fall to a lower level in the same sequence). Tag 2 has Tag Assaults (cooperative combos triggered by hitting a Bound and a tag) and Tag Crashes (an emergency tag occurring when downed and the partner is currently in Rage).
Tekken 7 modifies the formula’s mobility. The rear walk animation is now more fluid, like Tekken Revolution, instead of a slow shuffle. Regular back rolling from a grounded state has been replaced with a rising animation, and performing an “ankle kick” (kicking a standing opponent while laying face up on the ground) now includes a new back roll to create separation.
Tag Tournament 2 balcony breaks work like in solo mode. New features include “Power Crushes” and “Rage Arts” (attacks that can only be used when your character has hit a Raged state near the end of their vitality meter, sacrificing the Rage mode to perform the episode).
Tekken 8 Release Date
Tekken 8, unique to the PlayStation 5, will launch later. It is uncertain if it will come to other platforms like the PC, but it seems likely. There has been no announcement of a specific release date. But Tekken 8 will be out in the wild by July 2023.
What is Tekken 8?
Namco created and released the fighting game Tekken. The arcade version debuted in ’94, while the PlayStation version arrived in ’95. It was followed by Tekken 2 in 1996, making it the first of a series. The 3D graphics of Tekken were groundbreaking at the time; the game’s protagonists and antagonists are polygons, and the environments have been pre-rendered.
At the time of its release, Tekken gained widespread acclaim and was widely recognized as a driving force in the explosion in the popularity of fighting games. The PlayStation 2 version of the game is playable in Tekken 5’s Arcade History mode, and it has been transferred to the PlayStation 3, PSP, PSV, PS Vita, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
Kazuya Mishima, seeking revenge for his father, Heihachi, competes in The King of Iron Fist Tournament. After defeating Heihachi, Kazuya is betrayed by the latter’s grandson, Jin Kazama. This establishes the Mishima family rivalry as the series’ central conflict.
