The trailer for the Tekken anime for Netflix is ​​an (almost) flawless combo • ENTER.CO

Netflix continues to bet on anime and one of its next projects also combines its interest in video games. Tekken: Bloodline is the platform’s attempt to bring Bandai Namco’s fighting game franchise to the streaming service, and its latest sneak peek is a combo that hits all the right ones, except for a few misplaced inputs that ruin a combo almost completely. perfect.

The most recent preview gives us a release date that is just around the corner: August 18. It also confirms new details about its plot, showing Jin Kazama’s training with his ruthless grandfather, Heihachi Mishima. We also have small glimpses of the Iron Fist Tournament, as well as some of the characters that we will see in this adaptation such as Paul, King, Kazuya, Leroy Smith, Julia Chang, Nina Williams, Ling Xiaoyu and Hwoarang, with other surprise faces for sure. waiting for his debut.

As for the story, we will most likely see an adaptation of Tekken 3, with some small changes to introduce characters that originally did not appear in the game: a revenge mission and Jin’s path corrupted by unknown motivations and secrets.

Perhaps the only problem that many will find is in the use of CG to animate the project. Although Netflix is ​​a fan of animating series using computer graphics (Ajin, High Score Girl, Knights of the Zodiac, Kengan Ashura), most of their projects are usually home runs or strikes.

In the case of Tekken: Bloodline, the funny thing is that the CG seems to fit quite well with their fights. In the advance he manages to convey that sensation of the ‘weight’ and ‘impact’ of each one of the blows. The real problem is in the scenes outside the ring, where the character’s movements feel much stiffer and more robotic, ruining the execution of these other moments.

We hope these are just small bugs and not huge openings. Again, we won’t have to wait long to find out and see if Tekken: Bloodline executes a perfect round or goes down without landing a single hit.
