Want to know how to unlock those alternate outfits in the Tekken 8 character customisation menu? Tekken 8 gives players plenty of outfits and clothing items to change up the looks of their favourite characters.

Some of the outfits in the game are locked, and certain criteria must be met to unlock them. Here is how to get your hands on the Alternate B and other locked outfits in Tekken 8.

How to unlock alternate costumes in Tekken 8

You can unlock alternate outfits by going into Super Ghost Battle and defeating specific Ghost opponents.

In the Entire Body section of the customisation menu, you will see several locked outfits. Some of them have prices attached and can be purchased with Fight Money. The others have a lock in the middle of the icon, and cannot be bought.

If you select one of these outfits, it will tell you that you must "defeat the specified Ghost in a Super Ghost Battle" to unlock it. Every character has at least one of these outfits, some have two.

The Ghosts you must defeat are in the Super Ghost Battle room. There are avatars around the room with treasure chest symbols above their heads. You can fight these characters, and each one you defeat will unlock the alternative outfit their character is wearing.

Winning these fights is no easy feat, they are Ghosts that range from medium to very high-level difficulty. You'll need to bring your A-game if you want these extra outfits.

That is it for unlocking alternate outfits in Tekken 8. For more info, check out our Tekken homepage where we have a rundown of how long it takes to beat the game, an explainer for the ending, and a storyline recap to get you caught up.
