As we told you in our review of Tekken 8, Bandai Namco’s new fighting game establishes itself as one of the best around, exceptional not only from a gameplay perspective but also very rich in content, including several single-player modes. And what about mini-games??
In the game’s extensive offering, Tekken Ball is the only true mini-game that makes its triumphant return in Tekken 8 through an updated version of the mode seen in the past Tekken 3 and then suggested again in the version Wii U From Tekken Tag Tournament 2. For the more nostalgic fans, it is therefore a great return, although it is not currently accompanied by other mini-games. It cannot be ruled out that Bandai Namco will definitely update more from this perspective in the future, perhaps through DLC, as happened with this one Tekken bowl on the occasion Tekken 7.
And as for that Tekken Force? Well, the famous mode that was first introduced in Tekken 3 is at least not returning not as a standalone game option: a specific phase of History mode Tekken 8 is structured in the same way as Tekken Force, giving players more freedom of movement and allowing brawls against multiple opponents like in the good old days.
However, it is a simple homage to the past of TekkenSo you shouldn’t expect anything particularly complex or elaborate. But who knows if Bandai Namco will convert it into a real mode in the future…
