Tekken 8 gameplay

Tekken 8 is a fighting game similar to the earlier Tekken games. Katsuhiro Harada, the game’s production lead, said that Tekken 8 will be more aggressive than its predecessor. This means the game rewards players who attack more often rather than just defending.

They added a new thing called “heat”. When a character is in “heat” mode, they deal more damage, gain additional moves, and change the way some attacks work. In this mode they can even cancel moves.

“Heat” mode has a timer that stops when the character uses certain moves. If you defend against a powerful attack or character in Heat mode, you’ll still take some damage, but you can regain health by attacking.

Tekken 8 has some changes and improvements. The “Rage” system from the last game is back, but they’ve changed one of the moves into a new super move called “Heat Crush.” They also replaced the “screw” move with a “tornado” move, which can knock opponents to the ground quickly.

Certain stages in the game have special things like walls and floors that break when hit hard enough. There are also hazards, such as explosive walls and floors that send characters flying when hit.
