Check out the official teaser for the upcoming series here:
Netflix describes the new Tekken animated series as:
“‘Power is everything,’ Jin Kazama learned the family self-defense arts, Kazama-Style Traditional Martial Arts, from his mother at an early age. 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.”
Bloodline is the latest in Netflix’s range of video game adaptations. Over the past years, Netflix has released animated adaptations of popular games, including Resident Evil, Monster Hunter, Dota, and more. With a Tekken series coming soon, it will be interesting to see how this will be received by long-time series fans.
Tekken: Bloodline is set to premiere on Netflix later this year.
