    In the summer, a new stage and photo mode will be released as a free update. The new stage, “Seaside Resort,” is Lidia’s stage from Tekken 7. The developers did not explain how Tekken 8’s photo mode will work, but more information will come in the future.

    For competitors and spectators, the TEKKEN WORLD TOUR is still ongoing as players worldwide fight for points to advance to the finals. Additionally, Tekken 8 will be at EVO 2024 from July 19-21. The game makes its first debut at an American EVO this year, including many others.
