Tekken 8 Jun Kazama: Is she in the game?

Last updated

Tekken is one of the most iconic fighting game franchises in the world, known for its unique characters, engaging storylines, and exciting gameplay. With the release of Tekken 8 on the horizon, fans are eagerly anticipating which characters will make the cut. One character that has been on the minds of Tekken enthusiasts is Jun Kazama, and the good news is that she will indeed be in the game.

Jun Kazama first appeared in Tekken 2 as a playable character, serving as the love interest of the series’ main protagonist, Jin Kazama. She soon became a fan favourite due to her strong fighting abilities and mysterious backstory.

Her storyline involves her being a wildlife conservationist who is on a mission to stop the evil forces of the Mishima Zaibatsu, a powerful corporation responsible for much of the world’s woes in the Tekken universe.

When was Jun Kazama last playable in Tekken?

Despite her popularity, Jun has not been featured as a playable character in a Tekken game since Tekken Tag Tournament 2, which was released in 2011. This has led many fans to wonder if she would ever make a return to the series as a playable character.

Fortunately, fans’ wishes have been granted as Jun has been confirmed as a playable character in Tekken 8. This marks the first time that she will be playable in a mainline Tekken game, and fans couldn’t be more excited.
