On Halloween, Tekken 8 developer Bandai Namco revealed four new fighters: Zafina, Lee Chaolan, Alisa Bosconovitch, and Devil Jin. The team also noted that it would be revealing the roster's penultimate character on November 2, and today it followed through on that promise. However, unlike all of the fighters announced a few days ago, today's Tekken 8 reveal features a fighter who is making their franchise debut. Victor Chevalier might look like an elder statesman, but his fighting ability will leave his foes in the hospital.
Since Victor is a new character for the franchise, there's not a ton of information for him yet. That said, we do know a few fun facts. The most important is that he is the founder of the Raven Force, meaning he's Raven's mentor and superior officer. Bandai Namco also says that Victor "descended from a lineage of distinguished knights, we a dream to rescue those in need. He followed in the footsteps of his father and enlisted in the French Navy." So, he's a military man through and through.
On top of that, Victor is an incredibly fashionable man, dressing in one of the finest suits you'll see in his reveal trailer. He also employs an advanced sword, a gun, dual knives, and some type of special ops sunglasses. In fact, his moveset uses several moves where he blips out of existence, meaning those glasses might have a form of camouflage in them. In short, Victor seems like the kind of fighter who will take some getting used to, but once you understand his kit, he should be a pain to play against.
