The leak comes from Reddit where u/JanFromPoland shared a photo on the Tekken subreddit that is reportedly a picture of the German PSN page for Tekken 8. It claims that the four fighters coming as DLC will be Roger, Xiao Meng, Armor King, and Eddy Gordo. As far as anyone can tell, Xiao Meng is a completely new character for the franchise, making it impossible to guess what they will play like, but the other characters have already appeared in previous Tekken games.
Roger is likely the most famous, given that he's a boxing kangaroo. That said, the leak doesn't make it clear if this is Roger Sr. or his son, but the latter was most recently playable in Tekken 6, so it would make sense for him to pop back up here. Like King, Armor King is a pro wrestler. Two brothers have held the mantle, though this will again probably be the younger Armor King who was last seen in Tekken 7. Finally, Eddy Gordo has been involved in just about every Tekken game since Tekken 3, making it a bit of a surprise that he was held back for DLC. That said, his flashy style will likely be worth the wait for long-time Tekken fans.
Hopefully, we'll learn more specifics about the DLC roster at The Game Awards. After all, we already know that Tekken 8's executive producer Katsuhiro Harada is in town for the event. Either way, here is the complete day-one roster:
Kazuya Mishima/Devil Kazuya
Lili De Rochefort
Azucena Milagros Ortiz Castillo (New)
Victor Chevalier (New)
