Bandai Namco revealed two new characters coming to Tekken 8 in 2024 on April 2, 2023. Asuka Kazama and Leroy Smith, two very well-known figures in the Tekken universe, are these characters.
The crowd erupted as the characters were shown, and people have been tweeting about it ever since to show their support. It is safe to assume that several Tekken 8 gamers have already decided to devote all of their time to playing these characters as soon as the game is launched.
All information about Leroy Smith and Asuka Kazama in Tekken 8!
In the Tekken universe, Asuka Kazama is a relative of Jun and Jin Kazama. She first appeared in Tekken 5 and has since appeared in each subsequent game release. Therefore, it was no surprise when the game’s makers revealed the character’s departure.
At EVO Japan 2023, some really strong gaming was shown. Asuka moves quickly and strikes strongly. Asuka already has the appearance of an S-tier unit. Thus, predicting that Asuka mains will have a great time is safe.
Tekken’s shared a post on Twitter:-
No more playing around.
Asuka brings justice in #TEKKEN8!

As opposed to Asuka Kazama, Leroy Smith is a different kind of troop. He seems to combine his high-profile sense of fashion with his martial arts expertise since he is all about style.
Regarding character creation, Leroy Smith may be the best character designer in Tekken 8. Fans, however, have criticized him for being weak and underpowered in Tekken 7. As a result, many players request that he improve both his kit and damage output.
Sadly, no other information was provided, but adding these two characters significantly expands Tekken 8’s starting roster. This is not the end, as there will be more revelations for the fans in the coming days, and local alpha testing is anticipated to begin soon.
