First, Harada noted that there will be crossplay in Tekken 8. He also noted he tried to include it in Tekken 7, but Microsoft and Sony got in the way.

Next, Harada mentioned that rollback netcode will be in Tekken 8 and the team didn’t announce it or crossplay is because of people’s comments.

Harada didn’t mentioned exactly how many characters will be in the Tekken 8 launch roster. However, he did say, “I think it’s a lot more than Capcom-san.”


So far, we’ve seen trailers for 12 Tekken 8 characters.

Finally, Harada mentioned that people who want to play in native 4K should make sure their PCs have high specs.

Tekken 8 is in development for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and PC via Steam.
