Tekken 8 brings back the legacy of the Mishima family to current-gen consoles, but is the game available on Nintendo Switch? Here is everything you need to know.

For over three decades, Tekken fans have bludgeoned each with Paul Phoenix’s powerful punches and spammed more Hwoarang kicks than they can keep track of.

The series has gone on to become a staple in the fighting genre. Tekken 8 looks to transcend another generation of gaming and ensure the franchise remains a global phenomenon.

As to be expected, the new game builds on Tekken 7. Enhanced gameplay mechanics, graphical improvements, and engaging narratives make Tekken 8 a must-play for any gaming fan. With the game out now on PlayStation, Xbox, and PC, will Switch users be as lucky?

Can you play Tekken 8 on Nintendo Switch?

Unfortunately as of writing, Tekken 8 is not available to play on the Nintendo Switch.

While Tekken 8 is not available on the Nintendo Switch as of now, this could potentially change in the future. The dynamics of the gaming industry are always evolving, and Bandai Namco has shown a willingness to adapt, with some of their previous games, like Dragon Ball FighterZ and Pokkén Tournament DX, successfully launching on the Switch.

Therefore, Tekken 8 could follow suit in due course, depending on factors such as market demand, technological compatibility, and strategic direction. Other fighting franchises such as Mortal Kombat have waltzed their way over to Nintendo’s popular platform, so hope is not lost for Tekken fans.
