Tekken Ball Returning in Tekken 8
If you were one of the millions of Tekken 3 players back in the 90s, then you’ll probably have fond memories of Tekken Ball — a mode that saw two characters use their regular moves smack a beach ball at one another in the hopes of scoring a KO. A truly beloved activity, but one that would never return in any future Tekken title (aside from Tekken Tag 2 on the Wii U, which is some serious monkey paw stuff).
We’re incredibly happy to report, then, that Tekken Ball will return in Tekken 8. The reveal, which has us grinning like idiots, was made on the Japanese , which explains that the mode will be fully playable (and somewhat reimagined) in the upcoming sequel. It’s also confirmed that Tekken Ball can be played online or offline, and against the CPU. What more could you possibly want?

What is Tekken Ball?
Tekken Ball was a popular mode in Tekken 3, released in the 90s, where players controlled characters who would engage in a unique game of beach volleyball. Instead of using traditional volleyball techniques, the characters utilized their regular moves to hit a beach ball towards each other. The objective was to score a knockout (KO) on the opponent by successfully hitting the ball beyond their reach.
The Beloved Return
After years of absence, Tekken Ball is making a triumphant return in the highly anticipated Tekken 8. This announcement brings joy to fans who have been eagerly awaiting the revival of this beloved mode.

Expect fresh twists and surprises that will take the Tekken Ball mode to new heights.
One of the most exciting aspects of the announcement is the confirmation that Tekken Ball can be played both online and offline.
