Capcom has shared a small Tekken 8 teaser at Evo 2022. This clip shows Kazuya carrying Heihachi up to the edge of a cliff and depositing him off the side, before smiling at the camera.
The scene then cuts to a close-up of a new model of Kazuya doing the same smile, before the teaser tells us all to "get ready". You can see it for yourself at the end of the clip below.

This brief preview of things to come was then quickly reshared by The Game Awards Twitter account.
Putting two and two together, many fans now assume that Tekken 8 will be fully unveiled at The Game Awards 2022.
Earlier this year, it was revealed that Tekken 7 is now the best-selling game in the series.
As of June, it has sold an impressive 9m copies worldwide, with the series as a whole selling 53m copies. I am not Tekken the piss!
Meanwhile, if you want to add some Elden Ring to your Tekken gameplay (because why not), check out this mod from Ultraboy.
