Introduced in Tekken 7, Claudio wields powerful, magic-like abilities known as the Light of Sirius, and is a very beginner-friendly character, or at least he was in the previous game. From the look of things, Claudio has retained a lot of his trademark moveset, including his iconic superman punch, and the Heat system gives him access to even more devastating attacks and strings.
Interesting, Claudio is so far the only character introduced in Tekken 7’s base roster to be confirmed for Tekken 8; Leroy was introduced as DLC in Season 3, so he wasn’t there at launch.
Check out Claudio in action below.
Tekken 8 will host a Closed Network Test July 21 – 24 for PS5 owners lucky enough to have been selected during the sign-up process. Claudio is one of 16 characters featured in the test alongside veterans including Kazuya Mishima, Nina Williams, and Paul Phoenix.
Bandai Namco Games has yet to announce a release date for Tekkekn 8.
