Every fighting game has to have a Bruce Lee character, and Tekken’s is named Marshall Law. It’s been revealed for a while that Law will be a playable character in Tekken 8, and now we have a full gameplay reveal for him following Paul Phoenix.
Check him out:
It’s time to show you who’s the best.
Come and get it with Law in #TEKKEN8!
Like I said, Law is the Bruce Lee-type of the Tekken franchise, so you can expect him to have a lot of signature moves that Lee had made popular on the big screen. Though Law mostly just uses his fists and feet in previous games, it seems that Tekken 8 will be allowing characters weapons—and what more iconic weapon for Bruce Lee than his nunchaku?
So far it seems that Law’s kit is pretty much the same with what we’ve gotten before, but I think that’s pretty much expected for the character. I’m sure we’ll get more in-depth analysis of the changes when the game finally comes out.
Here’s the official overview for Tekken 8:
Developed by Bandai Namco Studios, Tekken 8 pushes the envelope for fighting games and takes full advantage of the power of the latest generation of consoles by creating one of the most visually stunning and immersive titles in the genre yet. Tekken 8 picks up after the gruesome battle that ended in Heihachi Mishima’s defeat, focusing on a new rivalry pitting father against son as Jin Kazama stands in defiance against Kazuya Mishima’s quest for world dominance.
Tekken 8 still has no release date, but hopefully we can get the launch sometime later this year.
