Here's a look at Jun Kazama gameplay from Tekken 8

Mother I'd like to fight.

Bandai Namco has shown off Jun Kazama gameplay from Tekken 8.

This is a big moment for Tekken fans: Jun made her debut in 1995's Tekken 2 and hasn't been a playable character in the mainline Tekken series since. 28 years later, she's back and it looks like she hasn't aged a day. Tekken time logic!

The footage kicks off with Jun fighting her own son, Jin, but the highlight is Jun's long-awaited encounter with Jin's dad, Kazuya Mishima. It's all a bit Jerry Springer.

"Love is a mother's most powerful weapon," reads the official blurb.

"Jun Kazama brings balance in all things in Tekken 8."
