Service maintenance is arranged to run from 5:30 p.m. PST until up to midnight during which time all online content will be inaccessible to reach or use.

One of the significant new additions to the game will be the previously declared Tekken Shop that will encompass both complimentary and premium items including character and avatar skins / items, which can be bought with the newly introduced Tekken Coins premium currency.

A Uniqlo UT x Tekken collaboration is approaching to the Tekken Shop upon release too that will introduce complimentary T-shirts for characters and avatars based on the genuine Tekken 30th anniversary shirts Uniqlo is vending at their outlets and online.

Moreover, Bandai Namco is taking action against reported cheaters, who will be eliminated from the leaderboards and have their positions reset back to Beginner, while probably more severe restrictions for cheaters and rage quitters stay in progress.

Lastly, the Tekken Fight Lounge is set to get a few quality of life enhancements to make the experience better / smoother.

Concerning the game’s individuals, Alisa, Asuka, Azucena, Bryan, Claudio, Dragunov, Feng, Hwoarang, Jun, Kazuya, King, Kuma, Panda, Lars, Law, Leo, Leroy, Lili, Nina, Raven, Reina, Victor, Xiaoyu, and Yoshimitsu will be modified in the update.

Many of these will just be remedying unintentional issues or glitches although Leroy’s dog Sugar has especially received a nerf to make her hitbox disappear if the fighter takes damage before she makes contact.

Considering battle adjustments are being made, replays from the current build of Tekken 8 will be erased / rendered inaccessible to view while Super Ghost Battle data will be refreshed to correspond to the present state of the game.
