There is still time and enough for a new Tekken 8 Devil Jin reveal showcase!
Although the release is just around the corner, Bandai has still dropped the last reveal trailer.
Let’s take a look at the final fighter to be revealed for Tekken 8…
Tekken 8 Devil Jin Reveal Showcase
Tekken 8 is set to release worldwide on January 26th in just a few hours!
But before we get our teeth into the latest release, let’s take a look at one of the most popular fighters since his release, Devil Jin.
Sporting the new game with a new look, Devil Jin has got some great appearances going on. Almost emulating Kazuya in his formal attire, Devil Jin sports a black jacket with almost vamperic Drcual esc cuff motifs going on.
This style suits him much better and makes him more distinct than his previous counterparts. Although he has looked cool before, there is no denying that it was just Jin with added horns and wings. Here he has his own fit, separate from Jin, giving him a much more defined personality.
The trailer shows off a much more refined Devil Jin, showcasing some distinct new moves. His up-forward two have been sawped for a homing swipe attack. This move gives a wide horozontal coverage that catches sidesteps off guard.
His downback 1+2 charge-up is present and can be cancelled into moves like morning crow. Great option for mixups and throwing off reads. One noticeable difference is that his 1, 1, 2 flash punch knocks back opponents further than before. Although followups are not possible, this is great for extra wall hit damage if close to any.
His hellsweep now has a natural combo, which players say hit for around 48 damage. This move is best in heat, which opens up more possibilities and possible wall combos.
From the trailer, Devil Jin seems to boast great mixup potential as well as neuteral play.
Devil Jin Origins
is a Tekken character who made his first appearance in Tekken 3 but didn’t become a fully playable character until Tekken 5. He is Jin Kazama’s devil form after being consumed by the effects of the Devil Gene.
His first appearance in Tekken 3 was shown at the end of Jin’s story cutscene. After being betrayed by Heihachi after defeating the true ogre, Jin is shot multiple times by him with a handgun. But to Heihachi’s dismay, the 19-year-old gets up with new wings and demon eyes. Slamdunking his granddad to the curb, the devil Jin flies away into the moonlight.
This happens again at the end of Tekken 4: after defeating Kazuya and Heihachi, he bails out in devil form after remembering his mother, Jun Kazama.
The plotline of Tekken for Jin after that was learning to control the Devil Jin after winning the Tekken 5 tournament. Jin, in his genius, decides to start a global conflict to cause Azazel to emerge from his sleep with the hopes of defeating him and stopping his devil gene.
Now, after the event of Tekken 7, Devil Jin seems to be at the back pedal of Jin’s focus during Tekken 8, with it now supposedly fully in control.
But we will see how this plays out very soon in the next Iron Fist tournament!
