Eddy Gordo Coming to Tekken 8

Set to release in Early Access on April 1, the latest character to join Arika and Bandai Namco’s Tekken 8 roster is Eddy Gordo.

Making his debut in Tekken 3, Eddy Gordo uses Capoeira in his fighting style. He features an unpredictable fighting style, made up for fast strikes and two main stances that allow for aggressive mix-ups..

Players can pick up Tekken 8 for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. Be sure to check out our review of the game, which we gave a score of 90/100:

“TEKKEN 8 hits hard with what could quite possibly be the best TEKKEN entry to date. Fresher than newcomer Azucena’s signature coffee blend, this title does everything in its power to make this King of Iron Fist tournament worthy of all players.”
