Netflix has released the trailer for the new animated series Tekken: Bloodline. It is not difficult to guess that the series is based on the martial arts game of the same name.
The series will be made in the genre of Japanese animation, while it is worth noting separately that we are talking about the very animation that many of us admired in the 90s and early zero.
The events of the series revolve around the main characterJin Kazama game series. And to be even more precise, the anime will tell about the formation of Kazama. In particular, we will be shown how he learns martial arts from his mother.
Then, judging by the trailer, to his and his mother's housea huge demon attacks, and after ruining the house and killing the parent, he goes in search of his grandfather, Heihachi Mishima. As a result, according to the official synopsis, he will have to get to the King of the Iron Fist tournament.
The trailer has its own goodies for fans of the games of the series: we are shown the heroes who will appear in the series: Heihachi Mishima, Kazuyu Mishima, Leroy Smith, King, Jun Kazima, Paul Phoenix and even Ogre.
This is not the first attempt to reschedule eventsuniverse of Tekken games on TV screens. So, for example, in 1998 the animated film Tekken was released, and in 2009 a full-fledged feature film was released, which, however, no one liked. In 2011, the last attempt to transfer the world of games to the screens took place - then the animated film Tekken: Blood Vengeance was released.
The last game in the series was Teken 7, released back in 2015. Perhaps, after the series on such a large platform as Netflix, we should wait for new announcements.
Also for hosting, this is not the first series aboutvideo games. The Arcane series based on League of Legends is widely known, having gathered a significant fan base. The series was appreciated both by the fans of the game itself, and by ordinary people, who generally did not hear that there is such a game. It was also appreciated by critics: the series collected an impressive number of Annie awards.
So it remains to be hoped that this series will be successful. Its release is scheduled for this year.
