With the closed network test for Tekken 8 starting July 21 for PS5, Bandai Namco Entertainment has released a trailer for Claudio Serafino. An exorcist for the Archers of Sirius, he is one of 16 playable characters and a master of medium-range combat. Check out his moves below.
Although he is good at approaching opponents and punishing missed attacks, Claudio’s core mechanism is Starburst. Successfully performing some attacks activates it and grants new techniques, but once Starburst runs out, you must earn it again. With an array of counterattacks and ways to attack enemies, there is much in his arsenal to latch onto, especially given the new Heat Burst and Heat Engager mechanisms.
Tekken 8 is coming to Xbox Series X/S, PS5 and PC with rollback netcode and cross-platform play. It doesn’t have a release date yet, but Bandai Namco plans to launch it by April 2024. In the meantime, stay tuned for more updates.
