“Jin Kazama learned the family self-defence arts, Kazama-Style Traditional Martial Arts, from his mother at an early age,” the series’ premise 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.”
This isn’t the first time that the fighting series has been adapted, with the animated Tekken: The Motion Picture (1998), the live-action Tekken (2009) and Tekken 2: Kazuya’s Revenge (2014) and the 3D computer-animated Tekken: Blood Vengeance (2011) – which was even included with Tekken 3D: Prime Edition on Nintendo 3DS.
