The latest character trailer for Arika and Bandai Namco’s TEKKEN 8 puts the spotlight on the Master of Salmon Kuma.
Utilizing a Kuma Shinken original fighting style, this character featurs some moves from the Jack series of robots along with a number of unique strikes.
In true bear fashion, Kuma also features a “hunting” mode that allows him to go on all fours, changing up his moveset. Kuma also keeps players on their toes with longer arms, a nonstandard hitbox, and high-damage mixups.
