Good morning, have you had your coffee? At Evo 2023, just before the Top 6 Finals for Tekken 7, two new trailers for the upcoming fighting game Tekken 8 were dropped, revealing two more characters.
Of the two, one of them finally revealed an all-new newcomer challenger: Azucena Milagros Ortiz Castillo.
Hailing from Peru, Azucena is an MMA fighter that fights to promote her family’s coffee farm. The spunky, quick-stepping coffee drinker has a unique style in that rather than parrying, she can taunt and dodge by side-stepping. Doing it while in heat and she can follow up a dodge with a counter.
Being a big fan of coffee, naturally, she has a rivalry with tea-drinker Lili.
Azucena’s trailer also showcases a new stage, set on the steppes of Peru. The first level is a beautiful farmland with folks and llamas watching the action, and you can go downward to reveal a temple where the walls push back a character if touched.
Alongside Azucena is the reveal of Raven. Tekken 8 has revealed 18 characters so far.
Tekken 8 still has no release date, but it’s coming to PS5, PC (Steam) and Xbox Series X|S.
