Bandai Namco has ascertained the re-introduction of Lidia Sobieska in the game, who was featured in the earlier version of Tekken. The roadmap they shared shows that Tekken 8 will introduce Photo Mode, Seaside Resort Stage, and a new story mode chapter later in the fall.

Tekken 8 Bittersweet relationship with gamers.

Tekken 8 has had huge success this year since its launch back in January. The franchise sold over 2 million copies in under three weeks, quickly overshadowing its predecessors. Despite this massive success, the game has also received its fair share of scrutiny from players. 

Tekken fans have publicly shown discontent, claiming the game has been heavily monetized. Tekken 8 integrated several monetization features within the game, including a Fight Pass and several paid character cosmetics, among others. Fans have reacted negatively, leading to a bad score of “Mostly Negative” on Steam user reviews.
