Furthermore, Bandai Namco has released a new trailer for Tekken 8, highlighting the new features available on the PS5 version, designed to offer a next-generation gaming experience. The video highlights several important technical specifications, including sharp 4K graphics and gameplay fluidity guaranteed by a framerate of 60 fps. A distinctive element is represented by the very short loading times, an advantage deriving from the use of the SSD integrated into the console. Furthermore, the game also benefits from the sophisticated 3D Audio specific to the PS5. Of note, however, is the absence of features such as adaptive triggers and haptic feedback, elements which, although innovative, are not considered fundamental or particularly requested in the fighting game genre.
