#WakeUpWednesday 06.03.24

Since they were first played in arcades on oversized machines, fighting games have found their way not only into our homes via consoles and PCs, but also – in the case of franchises like Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat – into the pop culture elite, with merchandise and movie adaptations. The most recent entrant to the arena is Tekken 8, which recently launched to critical acclaim.

With a cast of colourful combatants, Tekken offers an adrenalin hit of fast-paced fisticuffs and slick presentation. As with any fighting game, however, Tekken’s competitive nature and focus on violence may not be ideal for the younger element of its user-base. This #WakeUpWednesday guide has some top tips for allowing fans of virtual martial arts to enjoy the action more safely.
