Tekken: Bloodline Animated Series Announced for Netflix in 2022

0

Netflix has announced Tekken: Bloodline, an animated series based on the beloved fighting series that is set to be released in 2022.

Netflix shared the news on Twitter by releasing both a teaser trailer and a poster that is focused on Jin Kazama. The official YouTube channel also reveals the show’s synopsis.

“‘Power is everything.’ Jin Kazama learned the family self-defense arts, Kazama-Style Traditional Martial Arts, from his mother at an early age,” the official synopsis reads. “Even so, he was powerless when a monstrous evil suddenly appeared, destroying everything dear to him, changing his life forever. Angry at himself for being unable to stop it, Jin vowed revenge and sought absolute power to exact it. His quest will lead to the ultimate battle on a global stage — The King of Iron Fist Tournament.”

The trailer also teases some of the Tekken characters that will be part of the show, including who appear to be Heihachi Mishima, Kazuya Mishima, Leroy Smith, King, Jun Kazama, Paul Phoenix, and Ogre.

This isn’t the first time Tekken has explored other entertainment mediums, as an anime Tekken film was released in 1998, a live-action film followed in 2009, and an animated film – Tekken: Blood Vengeance – arrived in 2011.

As for the Tekken games, the last mainline entry was Tekken 7 in 2015 – it began in arcades and came to consoles in 2017 – and no official announcements have been made for Tekken 8 or whatever it may end up being called.

This Tekken animated series is just one of the many in-the-works projects based on video games and joins an ever-growing list that includes Sonic the Hedgehog 2, BioShock, Halo, The Last of Us, and many more.
