Tekken 8 set on mid-March downtime to tackle lingering issues: Here’s when

Here’s all you need to know.

Tekken 8’s March 14 update is here, and if you’re wondering why it’s down, there are a few reasons. It seems as if most characters aren't under the microscope. However, there could be changes we won't expect.

Firstly, a few items will be added to the shop, and things like servers and characters will be looked at for maintenance. Wondering how long it’ll take and what time it starts? Here’s your answer.

Tekken 8’s March 14 downtime starts:

  • 11:00 a.m. JST
  • 03:00 p.m. CET
  • 19:00 p.m. PDT.

Tekken 8 will continue to have updates throughout its lifespan. These updates will impact gamers around the globe differently depending on their time zones. If you’re lucky, your busy schedule might cut out the maintenance hours completely.

How long will the March 14 update take?

Tekken 8’s downtime will take roughly five hours to complete. However, expect a margin of error. It seems you’ll have to play local games until the maintenance is finished. Maybe practice some combos against your family members while you wait. 

With Tekken 8 being such a big title and hosting tons of players across the globe, every inch of its gameplay has to be precise. This means tinkering with servers, characters, combos, power, and even chopping and changing the shop.

These things take time, so you might have to hit up another game in the meantime. Crack open Tekken 7 or boot up an installment from a console generation gone by.

What else is coming?

There are a few things headed to the TEKKEN Shop once the March 14 maintenance is complete. You’ll be in store for:

Legacy Costumes:

  • Law
  • Hwoarang 
  • Nina 
  • King

Avatar Skins 

  • Xiaoyu
  • Paul
  • Hwoarang
  • Devil Jin

With the TEKKEN Shop being changed so frequently, every player should have a spiffy new set of clothes for their next online matchup. We can't wait to see them after the March 14 Tekken 8 update.
