Tekken 8 hits PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC in just over a month, on January 26, 2024. As the release date nears, developer Bandai Namco has been releasing more and more about the latest entry in its flagship fighting series. We learned about newcomer Reina last month, and recently went hands-on with the game, too – read Game Informer’s Tekken 8 preview here. Now, Bandai Namco has revealed the first gameplay trailer for its “mechanized space ninja” Yoshimitsu.
It did so with a new Tekken 8 gameplay trailer that shows Yoshimitsu ripping and slicing through various fighters in the game’s roster. This ninja is no stranger to the Tekken series, having appeared in every mainline numbered Tekken game since the series’ start – he’s actually my favorite fighter, and for money, this is his best look yet.
Check him out in the Tekken 8 Yoshimitsu reveal and gameplay trailer for yourself below:
As you can see, Yoshimitsu unsurprisingly relies on his ninja sword to do a lot of damage to enemy fighters. And he does so with the speed the character is known for.
