About the closed network test:

The purpose of the closed network test is to test the network and monitor the gameplay experience of Tekken 8.

We aim to obtain feedback on the quality of the network and gameplay. We would greatly appreciate it if all participants could provide feedback through an online survey that we plan to send out via email after the closed network test. Your valuable opinions will be used as a reference for adjustments to the battle system.
