There’s a new Tekken 8 character trailer, and it shows that Hwoarang will return to fight. He’s referred to as the “Blood Talon” in his debut trailer. He’s been a fighter in the series since Tekken 3 and hasn’t missed an appearance in a mainline entry since.

Here’s the full Tekken 8 Hwoarang character trailer. In it, he faces off against already revealed fighter Nina Williams. His new character design also shows that despite incurring an injury to his eye during the events of Tekken 8, he’s recovered now. Following the match with Nina, we get to see him face his rival Jin Kazama, with a brief exchange between them at the start of that fight.

In case you missed some of the additions prior to Hwoarang being confirmed for Tekken 8, here’s the list of past character trailers.

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