Tekken 8 Trailer Reveals First French Fighter

Tekken 8 new character Victor Chevalier

As the release date of Tekken 8 draws closer, Bandai Namco Studios continues to reveal new characters joining the fighting game. For the first time in the history of the franchise, a French fighter will enter the fray: Victor Chevalier, the founder of the UN’s independent forces.

According to his backstory, Victor descended from a lineage of distinguished knights and followed the footsteps of his father when he joined the French Navy. He later joined the United Nations before founding and training the Raven Force, armed forces whose goal is to counter Mishima Zaibatsu’s troops.

Katsuhiro Harada, Tekken’s game director, revealed that he was considering adding a French fighter to this franchise for a while. French actor Vincent Cassel, who played in various movies including Black Swan and Ocean’s Twelve, was the main source of inspiration for Victor Chevalier and will be voicing the character in Tekken 8
