A recent leak indicates that the DLC characters Lidia and Fahkumram from Tekken 7 will be available in Tekken 8’s first season pass. A good balance of experienced players and rookies make up Tekken 8’s squad. Characters that were first seen in Tekken 7 have made a reappearance in the eighth mainstream installment, such as the exorcist Claudio Serafino, the Saudi Arabian warrior Shaheen, and Wing Chun expert Leroy Smith.
Four more fighters will be added to the season pass for Tekken 8, which is already scheduled for DLC. Eddy Gordo, a seasoned character who has been a part of the brand since Tekken 3, will be the first DLC character for Tekken 8. Because Eddy is a beloved character in the franchise and a December 2023 leak, many thought Eddy would be a perfect fit for Tekken 8. Although Bandai Namco has not yet disclosed any information on the remaining three combatants, a recent leak has offered some suggestions regarding the characters who may be featured in the next season pass.
Dataminer Shootsman put up a lengthy Twitter thread…
The source of this information is dataminer Shootmans, who published a lengthy Twitter thread outlining Tekken 8’s potential DLC cast. Shootsman claims that these data records suggest the reappearance of Fahkumram and Lidia from Tekken 7. These assertions are corroborated by the fact that certain aspects of a character’s stated fighting style and even nation of origin are absent from the game; examples include an unidentified fighter from Poland and a character from Thailand who practices Muay Thai, whose descriptions correspond to Lidia and Fahkuram, respectively.
Potential roster for Tekken 8 Season Pass 1
- Eddy Gordo (Confirmed)
- Craig Marduk
- Lidia Sobieska
Although many viewed Fahkumram as a controversial replacement for Bruce Irvin, the character he was supposed to replace, Fahkumram was a fresh new Muay Thai practitioner added to Tekken 7. However, the last DLC character for Tekken 7 was Lidia Sobieska, who received accolades for both her appearance and fighting technique.
Additionally, Shootmans provided proof that another beloved and much-requested character, Craig Marduk, will be making a comeback as DLC. This assertion was supported by the fact that information discovered in Tekken 8’s closed network test was retained in the final version and that Australia was included as the nation of origin for a character that was not yet identified. Although he is unsure of the characters’ release sequence, Shootmans anticipates that the characters will be published in the summer, fall, and winter of 2024.
Unlike the last Tekken 8 DLC leak, which stated that Eddy, Xiao Meng, Armor King, and Roger will be included as DLC, this lineup is different. In addition to asserting that the Xiao Meng figure was only someone who was trolling the community, Shootsman speculates that Armor King and Anna Williams would probably be included as Season 2 DLC. As further official details about the impending DLC for Tekken 8 are presented by Bandai Namco, fans should proceed with caution while considering this leak.
