Ardent fans have already beaten Tekken 7’s story mode. However, after putting the full stop on the Mishima saga, they’ve discovered something exciting. When you beat Akuma in the special chapter, and sit through the ending credits, you’re rewarded with a special cutscene. A secret ending, if you will, and a Tekken 8 teaser.
Tekken 7 secret ending
Nobody ever doubted that Tekken will continue after the seventh game, not even for a second. However, when the developers announced that this game will bring an end to the Mishima saga, most people were baffled. Where would the series go after this? What will a Tekken without Heihachi look like?
Thankfully, the devs have decided to give us a glimpse of the future. When you beat the Instant Carnage special chapter, you’ll get to see a secret ending, one that hints at things to come.
The cinematic opens with a panorama of the ruined city. Alisa, Lars and Lee are standing on a rooftop, discussing the future. Lars says Jin’s the one who sent the world to hell, and that it falls on him to bring it back. All three turn around, and the camera slowly pans to Jin walking out of the shadows. He says he accepts the burden of killing Kazuya, since the blood of the devil flows through his veins. Glowing sigils appear on his forehead, and the camera fades to black. An Oscar Wilde quote about not forgiving one’s parents shows up.
The next game is going to see Jin hunting down Kazuya, that much is clear. But what about other characters? The other three from the teaser will probably show up as well – Lars, Leo and Alisa. We don’t know anything besides that, and the developers aren’t going to announce anything anytime soon – not as long as Tekken 7 is still hot. If you have any theories of your own, feel free to share them in the comments.
