Bandai Namco has shined the spotlight on Sergei Dragunov in its latest Tekken 8 gameplay trailer, showcasing the famed White Reaper in action.
Dragunov originally made his debut in Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection, and is a man of very few words. However, his combat prowess is not be underestimated, as he’s one of the most deadly combatants in the series, thanks to his military background. A lot of his moves in the trailer should be familiar to Dragunov players, although he’s obviously got more tricks up his sleeves now thanks to the Heat system.
Tekken 8 is in development for PS5, PC, and Xbox Series X/S, with a release date set for January 26, 2024. The game picks up some time after Tekken 7, and with Heihachi Mishima now defeated, the action turns to the final battle between Kazuya and his son, Jin.
