Tekken 8 Gameplay Trailers Reveal Leroy Smith and Asuka Kazama

The Grandmaster of Drip and the Spirited Peacemaker have now been confirmed for the upcoming fighter’s roster.

Bandai Namco has released a string of gameplay trailers for Tekken 8 in recent weeks that have confirmed a number of characters for the fighter’s increasingly impressive roster, and the company recently revealed another two with new trailers that series fans will be well familiar with.

For starters, there’s Leroy Smith, the Grandmaster of Drip, who made his debut in Tekken 7 and will be coming back in the upcoming sequel. As you’d expect, the experienced martial artist will once again be accompanied by his dog, Sugar.

Another new fighter who’s been confirmed is Asuka Kazama, yet another member of the Kazama family, following in the footsteps of Jin and Jun Kazuma. Gameplay trailers for both show them duking it out against each other and letting lose some pretty hard-hitting moves. Check out the trailers below.

Previous trailers have also confirmed the likes of Kazuya Mishima, Paul Phoenix, Marshall Law, King, Lars Alexandersson, Jack-8, and Ling Xiaoyu.

Tekken 8 is in development for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC. It doesn’t yet have a release date, but Bandai Namco says it’ll be out sometime before April 2024.
