Check out Tekken 8’s final launch fighter, newcomer Reina


    After months of character reveals, Tekken 8 has announced the final fighter for its launch roster: Reina. This all-new character has lightning-fast movement, earning him the nickname “Purple Lightning” and has mysterious ties to the Mishima clan.

    Bandai Namco states that little is known about Reina’s history other than that she is a student at Mishima Polytechnic School. For some reason, she really wants to fight Jin (move over, hovering), and based on her gameplay trailer, she seems more than capable of taking it on. Watch Rena in action below.
