Tekken is reportedly coming out with a movie some time this year. It will
star Jin Kazama, and is supposed to be about the time between tekken 3 and
4, I believe. But we'll see.
I do agree with you... and I do notice that most of the best tekken players
I know also do or have done some form of martial arts in one way or another.
What I also like about the tekken storyline is the fact that within the main
plot of the tournament for each game which is always different, each
character has some form of storyline or another. For example. In tekken 5
the tournament revolves around Heihachi's father, Jinpachi being the
sponsor, but Jin has his own entirely separate plot for the game, involving
him trying to find out details about the devil gene and how to keep it in
Here's an example to clarify what people say about Tekken's storyline having
more flexibility and diversity than MK. Here's a breakdown for everyone
who's interested. The tekken storylines are for tekken 3, 4 and 5. Mk
storylines will be for Mk3, 4, deadly alliance and deception. The point
should become clear.
Tekken 3.. in a nutshell, a fighting god has began attacking martial
artists.across the world. Heihachi holds the king of iron fist tournament 3
to lure ogre out in an attempt to make himself a superior creature to a
normal human being.
Tekken 4. Heihachi wants the devil gene that is devided between his son,
Kazuya Mishima and his grandson, Jin kazama. He holds the king of iron fist
tournament 4 to acquire it from both of them and to be able to ambush them
in a trap.
Tekken 5. At the end of T4 t as tekken, Jin Kazama knocks heihachi and
kazuya unconscious then departs after telling them they have his mother to
thank for being spared. Tekken 5 starts mere seconds after. This is a basic
description of the tekken 5 intro movie.
Heihachi and Kazuya are lying unconscious inside the temple where Jin beat
both o them. Suddenly, a squad of mack robots appear and ambush the pair.
Heihachi and Kazuya fight together for a time, then Heihachi begins to
weaken. Seeing this, Kazuya picks Heihachi and hurls him into the middle of
the group of robots to escape by using his father as a distraction. Seconds
later, one of the jacks sets off a self-distruct sequence, demolishing the
temple and apparently killing heihachi. Jinpachi mishima, who is heihachi's
father, is imprisoned in a basement under the temple and is currently
posessed by a demon, brakes loose, takes the mishima zaibatsu and opens the
fifth tournament for reasons unknown..
Right. That's the tekken. Now for the MK storylines, which can all be summed
up in one or two sentences.
MK 3 and 4 are both about people from diferent worlds invading earth... MK 3
had Shao Kahn, 4 had shinok. Deadly alliance and deception feature more of
the same... attempts to take over certain areas by certain people, always by
Maybe I've been a bit unfair.. but I feel this is reasonably
well-summarized. As well, in MK each character's bio and endings have
nothing that tie them together... unlike tekken's story mode prologues and
