The History of TEKKEN Shared in 8-Bit Cinema Glory

The TEKKEN franchise is one of the videogame industry’s longest running series encompassing over 20 years of history. This 20-year history also means numerous plot-points within the TEKKEN saga may have been forgotten or lost to the annals of time.

Today, we’re going to get everyone caught up on all the drama and twists-and-turns contained within TEKKEN’s long-running storyline through a fun 8-Bit Cinema rendition of TEKKEN’s franchise history covering TEKKEN 1 through TEKKEN 3. Relive Heihachi’s cold-blooded parenting philosophy as he drops his five-year-old son, Kazuya, off a cliff only to have Kazuya survive; awakening an undying need for revenge against his father and his thirst for power to take-over the Mishima Zaibatsu. Learn the origins of Devil Jin (Heihachi’s grandson) and how his storyline plays into TEKKEN lore.
