Big news for Iron Fist fans as Tekken 8 Tekken Force gets leaked on Twitter!
Recently, some screenshots were shared online, showing off what could be the latest Tekken Force Mode.
Lets dive in and find out if this is reality…
Tekken 8 Tekken Force Leaked on Twitter
On October 10th, screen shots were posted online showing what could be Tekken 8’s new Tekken Force game mode.
Twitter user Moonsault Slayer posted both a video and Tweet detailing four images that look strikingly close to Tekken 8. In this day and age, Bing AI images are easy to manipulate and create on whim. However, although it has yet to be confirmed, the images themselves look too expertly made to be fake.
The images show off Lars in a similar fashion to the Tekken 6 story mode, taking on a large number of Tekken Force soldiers. What is noticeable is the assist list function found on the left side that seems to have been carried over from Tekken 7.
The bar on the top side showing two coloured icons makes it look like a Muso-style game. In Dynasty Warriors, players took on large numbers of enemies to deplete their main forces until their bar emptied. This seems to indicate that Tekken 8 may play in the same fashion as them in this mode.
Although this is looking like a Tekken force mode, it may play more like Tekken 6 rather than 3 and 4. Tekken Force was originally introduced in Tekken 3, where players would have to beat it in order to unlock Dr. Boskonovitch.
Whether or not this is part of the new story mode or just an extra game mode has yet to be confirmed by Bandai Namco. But, judging from the images it may be safe to say that it could be a part of both.
Tekken Force is a minigame first introduced in Tekken 3 and later reappeared in Tekken 4. The player selects a character and goes through stages fighting Tekken Force members. The stages end with a boss being one of the fighters in the game’s roster. The minigame was later expanded upon with Devil Within in Tekken 5 and Scenario Campaign in Tekken 6.
With the recent drop of Tekken Ball mode, it is apparent Harada is taking the criticism of Tekken 7 onboard. Many players were disappointed by the lack of single-player content compared to previous Tekken titles. Although it played the best in years, fans could not deny that the other modes were a bit lacking.
