Tekken: Bloodline marks the latest video game adaptation that Netflix is taking a swing on, having already succeeded in its League of Legends adaptation Arcane, its Castlevania adaptation, and the hit series based on The Witcher books and games.
“‘Power is everything.’ Jin Kazama learned the family self-defense arts, Kazama-Style Traditional Martial Arts, from his mother at an early age,” the official synopsis reads. “Even so, he was powerless when a monstrous evil suddenly appeared, destroying everything dear to him, changing his life forever. Angry at himself for being unable to stop it, Jin vowed revenge and sought absolute power to exact it. His quest will lead to the ultimate battle on a global stage — The King of Iron Fist Tournament.”

This won’t be the first time an adaptation has been explored, as the series had its own anime films in 1998 and 2011, and a live-action film in 2009 as well. The latest mainline Tekken game was released in 2015, when Tekken 7 launched to great reviews, garnering an 82 average score.
