We've just seen the back of what may as well be fighting game Christmas, and a lot of players are a little sore about it. EVO 2022 has just come to a close - the tournament combining the fervent heat of the fan bases of multiple fighting game franchises to create the ultimate hub of fighting game fans and professionals.

EVO 2022 has all the big hitters competing for ultimate supremacy, so it's a big deal in fighting game communities. Whether you're super into Mortal Kombat or Guilty Gear, the event has a tendency to go off with a bang. And this year, that bang seems pretty dramatic, as it has teased the return of a fighting game giant.

Was Tekken 8 Teased At EVO 2022? 

During the Tekken 7 Grand Finals at this year's EVO, Bandai Namco revealed a new trailer for the upcoming Tekken 7 update.  The update comes with more balance adjustments, while the trailer also revealed the Global Finals of the Tekken World Tour 2023 are taking place on February 4 and 5 in Amsterdam.

But, that's not the thing that fans have been so focussed on. The ending of the trailer (that the Tekken Twitter account urged fans to stick around for) showed the iconic scene of Kazuya throwing Heihachi from the top of a cliff, although, all is not what it seems.

As Kazuya looks at the camera, the video seemed to glitch and cut to an incredibly modern-looking build of the character. This was then teased as the words "get ready" appeared on the screen. Hoo, boy, it looks like a new Tekken is on the way.

 

What Could The Next Tekken Game Be?

Though the teaser all but confirms a new return to the Tekken franchise, a debate is now rife as to what the game itself could actually be. Of course, judging by this new look of Kazuya, it's likely to be visually striking - but it could go either way.

While this might be the long-awaited Tekken 8, it could alternatively be a remake of the first game or a total reboot of the franchise due to the use of the original PlayStation footage. No one knows right now, but in the meantime, we're still going to get incredibly excited that more Tekken is on the way. It's time for Kazuya to return to the top.
