Jack is another character who has been around since the original Tekken game, although technically he’s not the same version each time. Being a robot, Jack has been iterated upon each instalment, going from Jack, Jack-2, Gun Jack, Jack-4 (this version wasn’t in Tekken 4, but featured in a flashback in Tekken 7’s story), Jack-5, Jack-6, Jack-7 and finally this latest version.
While originally a fairly lumbering character known for his powerful strikes, Jack has become a bit more nimble nowadays, and has many more moves up his mechanical sleeves. Which Tekken player hasn’t been hit by his awesome keep-out tool, D/F 2? Anyway, with Heat introduced in Tekken 8, Jack-8 looks even more powerful than ever.
Tekken 8 is scheduled for release on PS5, PC, and Xbox Series X/S. A release date has yet to be announced.
