Bandai Namco Sends Notice of Infringement to Tekken 8 Mods Website

Bandai Namco's recent crackdown on modders has sparked controversy and concern among players. As reported by MP1st, the issue first came to light when several modders' YouTube videos showcasing Tekken 8 mods were struck down by the publisher. This move was followed by Bandai Namco sending a notice of infringement to a popular Tekken 8 modding website, TekkenMods, demanding the removal of all Tekken copyrighted content from the site.

Site admin Dennis Stanistan took to Twitter to share the letter he received from Bandai Namco, in which the publisher cited unauthorized use of Tekken's copyrighted images, logos, and text on the website. Despite Stanistan's clarification that the site has no affiliation with Bandai Namco and that all trademarks belong to their respective owners, the publisher's demands stand.


Modding has long been an integral part of the gaming community, allowing players to enhance their gaming experience, extend a game's longevity, and even create entirely new gameplay experiences. While Bandai Namco's concerns about the potential misuse of mods are valid, the approach of sending notices of infringement to modding communities may not be the most effective solution.

Players and modders are disappointed by Bandai Namco's stance on mods, as they fear that it may stifle creativity and limit the community's ability to share custom content. The situation has raised questions about the future of modding in Tekken 8 and the broader gaming community.

Despite the challenges, modders and players remain hopeful that a resolution can be reached that allows for the coexistence of modding and official game content. As the situation unfolds, players are encouraged to stay informed and support the modding community in their efforts to continue sharing creative content for Tekken 8.
