Claudio debuted in Tekken 7 and featured prominently in that game’s story mode. He’s an exorcist for the secretive Archers of Sirius organization, explaining his new “Banisher of Demons” tagline. In his new Tekken 8 trailer, Claudio is still using his flashy, magical style from the previous game, including his more powerful Starburst stance. The trailer also shows off his new Rage Art, where he uses a summon circle to create a bow of pure energy to shoot through Bryan Fury.

Claudio is the latest character confirmed for the Tekken 8 roster. Here is everyone else confirmed so far:

Lucky players will get to try out all these characters in the upcoming Tekken 8 Closed Network Test. PS5 players get first access from July 21-24, 2023. A second test for PS5, PC and Xbox Series X/S will take place from July 28-31, 2023. Bandai Namco have already sent out codes for the test to selected players.

Tekken 8 is in development for PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC.
