The iconic taekwondo practitioner returns! As if there was ever any doubt. Hwoarang’s gameplay trailer for Tekken 8 was released today, and aside from sporting some clearly new lines of dialogue and moves, he’s got a new outfit. The new look is a lot less biker boy and much more martial artist (but he’s still got the bike, mind you).

You might notice that he’s no longer wearing that eyepatch that became part of his main outfit in Tekken 7. He sustained an injury from a grenade blast during the story of Tekken 7 that caused him to wear the eyepatch, but its seems we’re past that now. Check out the trailer.
