Newcomer Victor Chevalier is the latest to take the spotlight in Arika and Bandai Namco’s TEKKEN 8 character trailer series.
Victor Chevalier is voiced by French actor Vincent Cassel, who previously worked on HBO’s Westworld, Ocean’s Twelve and Ocean’s Thirteen, Eastern Promises, Black Swan, and Jason Bourne.
Described as a “living legend,” Chevalier founded the UN’s independent forces in TEKKEN 8. He has descended from a lineage of distinguished knights, always seeking out to rescue those in need. He founded and trained the armed forces group known as Raven Force, which has the authority to act at their own discretion to counter private armed forces.

TEKKEN 8 – Victor Chevalier Reveal & Gameplay Trailer
According to Vincent Cassel:
“I’ve discovered TEKKEN in the 1990s and I’ve really started picking it up when Eddy Gordo was introduced. He was doing capoeira and back then, so did I, so I was only playing with him. What I like about Victor Chevalier is the fact that it’s a French character in such an internationally known game. In addition to that he is very sophisticated and promotes, through how he is and how he dresses, a certain idea of the French elegance. This, and the fact that I had been called to voice Victor lead me to be interested in the character.”Vincent Cassel
The game will come out for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC on January 26.
