Tekken 8 Leak Hints at Return of Tekken 7 Favourites

A recent leak has stirred up excitement among Tekken fans, suggesting that two beloved DLC characters from Tekken 7 may be making a comeback in Tekken 8’s first season pass.

The leaked information points towards the inclusion of Lidia Sobieska and Fahkumram in Tekken 8’s roster of DLC fighters. These characters, originally introduced in Tekken 7, left a lasting impression on fans with their unique fighting styles and distinct personalities. Lidia Sobieska, the final DLC addition to Tekken 7, garnered praise for her design and combat techniques. Fahkumram, a newcomer to the franchise, brought the art of Muay Thai to the forefront, albeit with some controversy among fans who viewed him as a replacement for the iconic character, Bruce Irvin.

The leak, which surfaced courtesy of dataminer Shootmans, has ignited speculation within the Tekken community. Shootmans took to Twitter to share a comprehensive thread outlining the possible DLC roster for Tekken 8’s first season pass. Drawing from data entries within the game, Shootmans suggested that Fahkumram and Lidia Sobieska are poised to make a return, supported by clues such as listed fighting styles and countries of origin aligning with the characters’ profiles.

Alongside Eddy Gordo, whose inclusion in Tekken 8 has already been confirmed, the leaked roster potentially features Craig Marduk. Marduk, a fan favourite character, has long been requested by enthusiasts of the franchise. Shootmans’ findings indicate that Marduk’s return may be imminent, with data from Tekken 8’s closed network test hinting at his inclusion.

While the leak offers tantalising insights into the future of Tekken 8, fans are advised to approach the information with caution. Shootmans himself acknowledges uncertainties regarding the order of character releases and the exact details surrounding the upcoming DLC. Bandai Namco, the publisher behind the Tekken series, has yet to provide official confirmation or clarification on the leaked roster.

The leaked roster diverges from a previous speculation surrounding Tekken 8’s DLC, which had suggested the inclusion of characters such as Xiao Meng, Armor King, and Roger. Shootmans dismisses Xiao Meng as a trolling attempt within the community, proposing instead that Armor King and Anna Williams may find their place in a potential second season pass for Tekken 8.

As anticipation mounts for Tekken 8’s DLC offerings, fans are advised to remain patient and await official announcements from Bandai Namco. While leaks can offer a glimpse into what lies ahead, nothing is certain until the publisher unveils concrete details. For now, enthusiasts can only speculate and eagerly anticipate the evolution of the Tekken franchise with the forthcoming additions to Tekken 8’s roster.

In conclusion, the potential return of Lidia Sobieska and Fahkumram in Tekken 8’s first season pass adds an intriguing layer of excitement to the fighting game community. As discussions and speculations continue to circulate, fans eagerly await further updates from Bandai Namco, keeping their fingers crossed for the inclusion of their favourite characters in the highly anticipated title.
