I think the game's story will naturally end with Jin killing Kazuya and then in Tekken 9 someone has to kill Jin or he offs himself.


For how drawn out Tekken's story has been, it's pretty straightforward at the end of the day compared to say, Street Fighter which has a ton of factions wanting to fight a bunch of different people.

I don't know how this work will end, but I'm very curious about how it will solve the half-hearted story in 7. I'm half excited and half worried.

Just watch it as Devil/Cyber Heihachi hijacks the plot at the eleventh hour.

Watch as Ling Xiaoyu and Dr. Bosconovitch join forces to build a time travel machine once again, but this time they mess up history quite badly, thus allowing to bring a big chunk of veterans (and guests) in and out of existence with no further explanation required. :rolleyes4::goi:

Anything to make Doctor Bosco relevent again.  Like seriously, after being responsible for Alisa, Bryan, and Jack models, how this guy doesn't have a more prominent role is beyond me.

This is the series with the sentient bear/kangaroo/velociraptor/wooden doll, never doubt it.

I'm just glad she no longer looks like Sarah Bryant anymore.

Nice gun combos.

Am I the only person that thought "Is this Tekken, or DOA?" when watching that trailer? I mean, it's an interesting style addition to Tekken... it just kinda threw me a little.

Not gonna lie... It looked "REALLY" cheesy for me...
The animations were stiff, the effects fell flat, just overall a hot mess. They're trying to do too many things at the same time it feels like.
I think the VA recorded new voice overs for Nina which hasn't changed since Tek 5's, so THAT's good. But except for that, I'm actually quite less hyped than before...

The 'heavy' usage of guns is also kind of lame imo- since this isn't a fighting game like MvC where those kind of characters are easier to justify given the source material. This is just a character packing heat in a martial arts tournament.

In general all characters' designs are veering more and more into 'army guy with body armour' since Tekken 6. It's personally not really my thing, I feel like the overall aesthetic of Tekken has increasingly grown more and more boring. King is still top tier though.

To me I feel Nina has never looked so badass as now. I love her T4 and T5 designs especially, but her T8 is really badass.
Never been much of a Nina player, but might give her some more time of day when T8 releases.

I kinda like Nina's new design(similar to her DbD, but adding a jacket) EXCEPT those fringes in the skirt. I liked few DbD treats on it, but I agree with StevenB: use of weapons...NOPE.

Also, this game has the very same problem than Tekken 7: GLITTER, GLITTER EVERYWHERE, EVERYTHING SHINES. EVEN WOOL. The armour like outfits, totally NO. Why no one learned from Mortal Kombat Armaggedon that those are not necessary? :/. I just have my hopes on customization as in Tekken 6. TAG2's and 7's were boring as Hell :(.
I swear there was something cool here!!
