Dataminer Claims Tekken 8 Season 1 DLC Characters

Tekken 8 Season 1 DLC characters have been leaked online. That’s according to a dataminer who used Cheat Engine to look into the game’s source code and presented the list of potential characters making their way.

Given that Bandai Namco already revealed that Season 1 will see the return of Eddy Gordo, it will be interesting to look forward to other characters coming back.

Dataminder, named Shootmans, says, “I confirmed and debunked several leaks at CNT (Closed Network Test).” Following the announcement, he also communicated how he got to the point.

As per the tweet, Shootmans used Cheat Engine, which is used for exploring and editing the memory of actively running apps. It is where he searched for strings of character names:

  • Alisa
  • Steve
  • Raven
  • Zafina
  • Yoshimitsu
  • Akira

In addition, the dataminer has also theorized that the characters are subject to customizations. Meaning, ‘your character’s portrait will change based on what costume preset you have equipped.’

The leaker found shirtless versions of Jin and Kazuya’s portrait icons in the game files, which supports the above claim.
