What to expect in the “Tekken: Bloodline” series?
“Tekken: Bloodline” will focus on the game’s famous story, focusing on young Jin Kazama and his quest to join the Iron Fist Tournament and overthrow the Mishima Zaibatsu Corporation. Other important characters from the game franchise are also coming, including that of Heihachi Mishima, King, Paul Phoenix, Ling Xiaoyu, Nina, Kuma, and more.
“Tekken” and its importance in pop culture
Arcade fighting video games have been massive since then, and now it’s an evolved genre as people are already using it to compete in e-Sports experiences and tournaments available around the world. One of the most important titles for arcade video games and electronic sports is Bandai Namco’s “Tekken”, a famous game that has a massive story about its characters, making it an important franchise for everyone.
The latest game release in the franchise is “Tekken 7”, which was last released by the company in February 2015. There are DLCs and additional content released by the developers, but it’s been seven years since the last version of the game, and it screams a headline sequel from gamers and fans alike.
Even a proposed title that will pit two famous arcade games against each other, “Tekken vs Street Fighter”, is canceled by CAPCOM and Bandai Namco.
Despite the company’s lack of new games, an upcoming title in the franchise will appear on Netflix by August this year, and it will make the Iron Fist tournament and other in-game items available to everyone. For now, fans and enthusiasts of the famous game franchise must wait for the series adaptation of the title.
