The reason being: the 2 guest characters were already announced to be from different video game licenses, just like Akuma.

Naruto the character and IP are owned by Bandai Namco, so it's the same license. Plus...nobody wants him in this game.

They've also already been together once in a cross over scenario in Project X Zone 2. Would love to see that happen.

It'll be the end of Mishima saga.

Tekken 8 will delve into the Manji clan and all of its mysteries and involvements.

If Sasuke makes it in you realize you'll have to drop all other characters, right?~

Anyway, it's going to be 2B and Makoto Niijima because the universe is fair and compassionate.

I don't even like Sasuke. This nickname is the remnant of a long bygone time when I was a huge Naruto fan.
I guess I have to though...

I'm a little salty that Akuma has his fireball in Tekken. Projectile spam is something I don't want in my fighting games; if I did, I'd play Street Fighter. I know they put Akuma in to try to get SF fans to try Tekken, but it feels like a punishment for the rest of us.

Actually, how strong is fireball in this game?

My impression is that you side step it, but is there something that actually makes it busted?

(like no recovery after throwing it out so they can still pressure you, etc. I don't know what the move does lol)

Fireballs can be easily sidestepped. They'll be nothing more than a mild annoyance.

I don't think spamming is much of an issue in this game, when you can easily side-step.

I hope they consider that if they ever add more classic fighters.

Not gonna change many songs , but will swap the helipads , the night one will get the music of the brimstone and fire stage (that stage is getting heat haze!!!) the evening one will get hideaway track from story mode (the second part is the vanilla duomo di sirio music ) and forgotten realm will get the tracks from arcade fight with akuma. Wanna keep it all t7 for now.
