The Tekken World Finals 2022 can be seen in its entirety on the Tekken Twitch channel or in the embed above.

Tekken 8 announcement?

Ah, here's why some of the casual Tekken players may want to watch this weekend with a vested interest. Tekken 8 was revealed in September and is looking like it's pretty far in development. The most recent trailer came during The Game Awards, which is helpfully embedded above.

A grand occasion like the Tekken World Tour Finals would certainly be an ideal spot to debut either a new Tekken 8 trailer, some new characters, or even a release window. There's no guarantee that anything's being shown and, in fact, Bandai Namco has made no indication that anything should be expected. Still, it doesn't hurt to be on the lookout for anything. We'll be back here at Shacknews if anything gets revealed.
