CG Tekken Movie Dropping This Summer

Check out the first footage of Digital Frontier's Tekken film.

There used to be an embeded media player here, but it doesn't work anymore. We blame the Tumbeasts.

In the glorious tradition of sub-par video game movies, a full-length CG Tekken film will be releasing this summer.   Produced by Digital Frontier (responsible for Resident Evil: Degeneration), Tekken Blood Vengeance will offer fans of the fighting game series a different type of look into the King of Iron Fist Tournament.  The movie will be directed by Youichi Mouri, who headed up the opening scenes of Tekken 5 and Tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellion.

Tekken creator and project director Katsuhiro Harada says that “this movie is just one way of exploring that world from a new angle while bringing insight to the series.”  Namco believes that fans have long been interested in a movie tie-in and hopes that it will deliver a satisfyingly detailed peek into the franchise’s characters and their histories.
