During their presentation at the Tokyo Game Show 2023, Bandai Namco Chief Producer Katsuhiro Harada and Game Director Kohei Ikeda unveiled the first four minutes of the Tekken 8 Story Mode, which includes a thrilling addition – quick time events (QTE).
This new feature promises to add an extra layer of excitement to the already highly anticipated title, setting new standards in storytelling and presentation.
Tekken 8 Story Mode now has QTE
Quick time events are interactive sequences in video games that require players to respond to on-screen cues within a limited time frame.
These cues often involve pressing specific buttons or executing precise actions to progress in game’s story. The outcome of QTE can impact the narrative, character interactions, and a player’s overall success.
The introduction of quick time events to the game is a first in the franchise. It is expected to breathe new life into the series and provide players with a more immersive narrative experience.
The story in Tekken 8 picks up six months after the dramatic events of Tekken 7, setting the stage for an epic battle between the father-son duo, Kazuya Mishima and Jin Kazama.
The presentation at the Tokyo Game Show 2023 offered a tantalizing glimpse of this intense conflict, leaving fans eager to discover the full extent of the story’s twists and turns.
Harada-san emphasized the showcased footage was merely a fraction of the overall story. He assured fans that there will be more to enjoy once the final product is released.
