We start with King, pillar of the franchise present since the very first part. So for nearly 30 years the brawny wrestler has been roaring with pleasure without ever revealing what his jaguar mask looks like except for a small glimpse in the 1994 introductory film. There still remains the spectacular violence with which the king of the ring inflicts punches and holds his crushed opponents fixed.
Lars appeared much more recently in the franchise, more precisely in Tekken 6, and made the Mishima saga a bit more complicated, as he is Heihachi’s illegitimate son, Kazuya’s half-brother, and Jin’s uncle. A family detail that only Lars knows and can occasionally cause tortured dreams. Devoid of the diabolical gene that characterizes the rest of his family, he nevertheless masters lightning attacks, in a literal sense.
At the rendezvous since the very first opus, finally, the character of Jack continues to deteriorate with a serial number following that of the episodes. The last flagship of Russian industry, here is Jack-8, a model that seems more armored than ever. Did he need a huge rail gun to intimidate his opponents? No, but as long as there is budget… teck 8 will be released on PS5, Xbox Series and PC.
