Announcing new characters to be included in their character roster for TEKKEN 8, Bandai Namco Entertainment has confirmed that Nina Williams will be playable when the fighting game launches on the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and Windows PC in the future. Like other fighters, their character model will be “completely remade from the ground up”, and be adapted into the game’s new combat philosophy which is pitched as “[focusing] on aggressiveness, creating even more spectacular and fun fights”.
Nina Williams, the silent assassin that first appeared in the original Tekken release, and is known from her smooth and deadly Assassination style. She’s also armed with weapons to defeat her foes in style. For TEKKEN 8, her moves and techniques are also enhanced, including introducing new abilities to fit with the philosophy of “aggressiveness” in the game’s new combat system. What is currently unknown about her, is how she will fit into the new narrative.
Nina joins the likes of other series staples such as Jin Kazama, Kazuya Mishima, Jun Kazama, Paul Phoenix, Marshall Law, King, Jack-8, and Lars Alexandersson to join the cast of TEKKEN 8.
