We already have in sight the ‘DOTA’ series, the ‘Castlevania’ series, the ‘Dragon Age’ series… and as if that weren’t enough in video game adaptations, Netflix has also given us another trickle of information about ‘Tekken: Bloodline’.
The new anime on the platform will be inspired by Bandai Namco’s fighting video game franchise and Katsuhiro Harada He has spoken about the development of the series and promises surprises about the past of its protagonist.
An anime with the approval of Harada himself
When the bell rings with an adaptation, fears always arise that it is not faithful to the original material. We still don’t have too many details on what to expect from ‘Tekken: Bloodlines’but in part we can breathe a little more calmly because Harada himself is involved in the production of the anime. This same year it was confirmed that Netflix is developing an anime series inspired by the video game saga, and during Geeked Week those responsible for the series took the opportunity to show us a first look at what is to come.
“It will show parts of the original story that have only been written so far, such as Jin Kazama’s life with his mother, Jun, in Yakushima, and the things they talked about,” explains Harada. “Those are my favorite scenes.”
‘Tekken: Bloodlines’ will focus on the origins of Jin Kazama, his exhaustive training and how he gradually gains more power. We do not know much more about the series and the number of chapters is yet to be revealed, although this first teaser has anticipated the arrival of more characters in the saga. Because if that were not enough, the producer has already dropped that some other surprise awaits us, even for the most veteran fans.
“I think that the most faithful fans and also the new viewers will discover many new things that will make them say … ‘Ah! So that’s what happened!’, the creator of the saga has promised.
Of course, in the absence of a specific release date, it seems that in principle ‘Tekken: Bloodline’ will arrive on the platform before the end of the yearso we can expect a final trailer in the coming months.
