Tekken 8 Dragunov Gameplay Reveal Shows off His Brutal Kicks

Tekken 8 Dragunov Gameplay Reveal Shows off His Brutal Kicks

Josh Wise

The upcoming Tekken 8 has yet another character joining its massive roster: Dragunov, the snobby-looking Russian army chap.

He walks along, he strokes his chin in deep thought, he even gets annoyed at the camera poking in his face. Then we get to see his moves, which are still a brutal blend of grapples and kicks.

The trailer’s description reads, “He’d like to have a word with you. Dragunov will make your blood turn cold in Tekken 8.” Presumably they mean your blood will be cold after Dragunov simply kills you.

Bandai Namco has been drip-feeding these character reveals; recently, we got trailers for Steve Fox, the British boxer, and for Leo Kliesen, who unfortunately brings to mind the protagonist of Square Enix’s ill-fated The Bouncer. It was awful – hopefully Leo won’t be.

Check out our preview of Tekken 8, wherein Rich critiques the upcoming game’s Heat action mechanic.

Tekken 8 is scheduled for release on 26th January, 2024, on  Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5, and PC.
