Tekken, like any good soap opera, has a rather convoluted story that's got a whole lot of betrayal and death involved which can make it a bit hard to keep track of. Then you add in devil blood and a fighting tournament and the whole thing is just kind of hopeless.
Well, Bandai Namco have finally figured out that, like any good TV show, we need a recap before this latest installment. In preparation of Tekken 7's release, we're getting a series of retro recaps that will cover all 20 years of Tekken plot-points that probably escaped you at some point between all the fighting matches.
These videos will give you a rundown of Tekken's long-running storyline through a fun 8-Bit Cinema rendition of events found in Tekken 1, Tekken 2, and Tekken 3. We'll relive Heihachi's cold-blooded parenting philosophy as he drops his five-year-old son, Kazuya, off a cliff only to have Kazuya survive which awakened an undying need for revenge against his father and a desire to take over the Mishima Zaibatsu company. We'll also learn the origins of Devil Jin (Heihachi's grandson) and how his storyline plays into Tekken lore.
So finally, I give you Tekken Retro Recap Pt 1. There are 7 more videos to come.
