Bandai Namco have released a Tekken 8 Bryan Fury gameplay trailer during Combo Breaker 2023. The popular character joins a growing roster of returning fighters as we slowly approach the game’s launch – we don’t have a release date just yet though Tekken 8 is expected to arrive sometime later this year.

The Tekken 8 Bryan Fury reveal video gives us another look at the sequel’s frenetic fighting gameplay. The developers have promised a more aggressive style that rewards players building pressure on their opponents thanks to the new Heat gauge system. Not only will it give you chip damage (damage dealt, even when your opponent is blocking), it can also unlock additional moves for your character, encouraging players to get stuck in instead of turtling up and waiting for the timer to run down.

Bryan’s updated character design for Tekken 8 doesn’t stray from his original appearance. He’s still the feral, electrified cyborg bruiser who has been a staple pick for almost a quarter of century now. Here’s an overview of the other characters confirm for Tekken 8 so far:

  • Asuka Kazama
  • Bryan Fury
  • Hwoarang
  • Jack-8
  • Jin Kazama
  • Jun Kazama
  • Kazuya Mishima
  • King II
  • Lars Alexandersson
  • Leroy Smith
  • Lili de Rochefort
  • Ling Xiaoyu
  • Marshall Law
  • Nina Williams
  • Paul Phoenix

Bryan first made his debut in Tekken 3: formerly a military officer, a near-fatal incident leaves him on the brink of death, saved by an operation that transforms him in a battle-hungry cyborg. He combines his bionic enhancements with a ferocious fighting style that blends brutal strikes, bone-crushing kicks, and devastating grappling techniques. His moves are characterized by their sheer power and precision, allowing players to dish out punishing blows and overwhelm opponents with relentless aggression.

But it’s not just about raw strength with Bryan Fury. He also possesses impressive speed and agility, making him a versatile fighter who can swiftly close the gap between himself and his adversaries. His high-risk, high-reward playstyle rewards players who can effectively read their opponents and capitalize on their vulnerabilities.

What makes Bryan Fury stand out, apart from his fighting prowess, is his iconic appearance and personality. Sporting a shock of spiky blond hair, a menacing grin, and a cybernetic eye, he exudes a cool and intimidating aura. He’s like the embodiment of a rebellious renegade, with a penchant for chaos and mayhem.

So far Tekken 8 has been confirmed for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC (via Steam).
