The Mishima family is back. Sony on Tuesday opened its State of Play presentation, a showcase of upcoming PlayStation 5 and PS VR games, with the announcement of Tekken 8. We didn't get a release date for the new game, but it'll be the first Tekken title in over at least eight years. 

After trailers for games like Hogwarts Legacy, Stellar Blade and a new Star Wars VR game, State of Play ended with a new preview of God of War: Ragnarok, arguably the most anticipated PS5 game of the year. It was the second such showcase of the day, as earlier, Nintendo held one of its Nintendo Direct presentations in which, among other things, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild's sequel got a name and a release date: Tears of the Kingdom hits the Switch on May 12, 2023.
