Netflix is making an anime of Tekken, one of the popular games of the 90s. The first trailer for Tekken: Bloodline, which will be released in 2022, has been shared.
Netflix plans to add a new one to its original anime content. Accordingly, the platform has released the first trailer for Tekken: Bloodline. As we can see from the shared one-and-a-half-minute video, the focus will be on Jin Kazama, who appeared in Tekken 3.
Tekken: Bloodline will be released in 2022!
The story of the Tekken series, which the children of the 90s knew well, was asked to be adapted as a movie and series several times over the years. However, the resulting productions – especially the Tekken movie released in 2010 – were buried by the critics. Even Katsuhiro Harada, the producer of the famous games, said that the movie was too bad to watch.
Contrary to expectations, the Netflix adaptation appears not as an animated movie or series, but as an anime. We see Jin Kazama in the lead role of the production called Tekken: Bloodline. Then, The King of Iron Fist tournament, where we will see the legacy of the Mishima family and a lot of supernatural power, is also included in the story.
The Mishima family has a mutation called the Demon Gene that has been carried for generations. This mutation also has a corrupting nature. Hence, we witness closely the effects of Heihachi Mishima on his son Kazuya Mishima and grandson Jin Kazama.
Jin’s mother, Jun Kazama, was also a character that appeared in the original games. From what we can see from the trailer, he was training his son Jin in combat until he was attacked by the Ogre. But the Ogre turns Jin’s life upside down. In the end, countless character and family secrets are revealed, laying the first stone on the road to the tournament.
