Netflix has shared the full trailer for the upcoming Tekken: Bloodline anime, based on the long-running Tekken franchise from publisher Bandai Namco.
The series will feature a host of iconic characters from the series, including the likes of Jin Kazama, Hwoarang, Heihachi Mishima, Kazuya Mishima, Nina Williams, Paul Pheonix, and more. From the looks of it, the anime seems to be taking a lot of visual cues from Tekken 3 specifically, with many of the characters retaining the same costumes from the classic 1996 release.
Here’s the official breakdown from Netflix:
“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.
The anime is confirmed to release on Netflix on August 18th, so if you’re a fan of the franchise, you may want to set your calendars!
