After vanishing following the events of TEKKEN 6, the enigmatic Raven has resurfaced in TEKKEN 8, reinvigorated and more formidable than ever. His mysterious disappearance was no mere absence, but rather a period of intensive training, honing his skills to perfection. Now, armed with a blend of lethal ninjutsu techniques and devastating strikes, Raven is prepared to leave a mark on the tournament like never before.

Raven’s combat style is a breathtaking fusion of nimble ninjutsu maneuvers and powerful blows, rendering him a force to be reckoned with on the battlefield. Adding to his versatility, he employs the unique “Soul Field” stance, allowing him to manipulate clones and wield teleportation, giving players the edge they need to master the rhythm of the fight.

As Raven reemerges, the stage is set for an epic clash of warriors, where he aims to leave his indelible mark on the TEKKEN 8 battlefield. Prepare to witness his redefined prowess and engage in electrifying battles as TEKKEN 8 unveils a new chapter in the fighting game saga!
