Tekken 8 is the newest episode of Tekken.


Jin has defeated Kazuya & Heihachi Mishima, & all that's left of them is their devils. So far, they've been imprisoned in Naraku, & eaten by True Ogre. But, seven years later, they've been mysteriously released somehow, & the only one that can defeat them are Jin Kazama (because he is used to them), Jun Kazama (because her clan is famous for exorcism), Ling xiaoyu (because she has the willpower to not give up), & Akira Kazama (due to the fact that he is the son of Jin Kazama & Ling Xiaoyu, he has powers that are both of & against the devils).
