Netflix Making a Tekken Animated Series
What a surprise! Netflix has released a trailer for the their new animated series Tekken: Bloodline. This was a major surprise for fans of Tekken and the FGC (Fighting Game Community) as most wouldn't have predicted that Netflix would be making a Tekken series. Lets check out the trailer and breakdown what we can see.
First scene we are shown is Jun Kazama training her teenage son Jin Kazama in the traditional Kazama martial art of Daito-Ryu Aikijujutsu.
Despite living in some kind of isolation in a forest. Jin appears to get bullied by local kids. Bad idea since man like Jin will not hesitate to retaliate.
Ogre appears to attack the Kazama household one night. Jin and Jun seem to be outmatched by the Aztec Deity.
Much like the games, we can presume Jun is killed by Ogre and Jin is left to find his Grandfather Heihachi Mishima
It seems Ganryu (who was absent for Tekken 3) will appear as a bodyguard working for Heihachi.
Heihachi is then shown training Jin in the Mishima style Karate expecting Jin to prove himself worthy of his ancestry.
The trailer flashes into a montage showing many Tekken characters from Paul Phoenix, Ogre's true form, Leroy Smith (who debut in Tekken 7), Jun and then headshots of Heihachi, Kazuya (dead at this point) and then Jin.
And a glimpse as the devil gene growing within Jin
Another cut shows Jin Kazama clashing with the Jaguar Masked Mexican Luchador King.
Lets take a look at how the other characters will appear in the stills from the trailer.
