When it comes to making fighting games, Bandai Namco is the clear winner. Bandai Namco has given many popular fighting games titles including Dragon Ball Z Budokai Tenkaichi 3, Jump Force, Tekken, Soul Calibur, Digimon, Naruto Shippuden, and many others.

Well, Tekken 7 was released on March 18, 2015, and since then Tekken fans have been desperately waiting for the announcement of the next title. When Tekken 7 was launched, it introduced many new elements to the game, including Rage Arts and Power Crush Mechanic.

Apart from the new fighting mechanics, we also saw the death of Heihachi in Tekken 7.

A feud between father and son finally came to an end when Kazuya killed his father Heihachi and threw his body into the volcano. In the end, we also saw the appearance of Akuma, who suddenly attacks Kazuya. However, the result of this battle is still unknown and is expected to be revealed in Tekken 8.

But Mishima family fights are not over yet, as Jin is back in full health and has joined hands with Lee, Lars, and Alisa. Jin is determined to kill Kazuya and end the war for everyone’s betterment. So in Tekken 8, we will surely see a battle between Jin and Kazuya.

Also, the revival of any dead character cannot be denied as we have earlier seen characters coming back from death.

Will we see the return of Heihachi in Tekken 8, well this question can only be answered when the game comes out? But from our perspective, Tekken 8 will not revive Heihachi again.
