Tekken 8 Doesn't Reuse Any Tekken 7 Assets, Built From the Ground Up on Unreal Engine 5

An interesting detail from a new IGN interview with Tekken boss Katsuhiro Harada: Tekken 8 apparently doesn't use any assets from Tekken 7. This means that character models and environmental details, all of the visual stuff, has been built from the ground up using Unreal Engine 5.

Good! I am very much looking forward to this. VERY hyped! :D

This seems to also support Epics claim that UE5 is compatible with last gen.

Fortnite is on UE5 and has been so for all of 2022.

How so? Tekken 8 is a current gen only game.

Still tragedy why xbox version revived no one x enhancements tek7 looks very very very very low res

Yeah everything except the obvious copy/pasted animation.

The characters retain their signature moves, obviously. If you compare them side by side you'll see the differences. Try doing a hellsweep with Kazuya in T7 and watch his torso contort horrifically. In T8 it's much more realistic looking.

God don't dare correct the fucking whiners on this site, facts be damned.
Also a dumb ass complaint. "Wahhh, a reused animation"
You guys need to find real problems.

People these days always crying over unnecessary nonsense! 🤣 I have 99 problems but a character animation ain't one....

So hopefully nothing close to the faces of T7

This is a huge plus. In Tekken 7 it was painfully obvious who was made for the game and who they just brought it.

Why what's wrong with Tekken 7?
