New Tekken Movie Announced

What has Demons, evil corporate bad guys and flying pandas!?!   The answer is the next Tekken movie, Tekken: Blood Vengeance. Now if any of you remember the live action version released just last year you might be a little worried.  I know I was, but there is some hope seeing that NAMCO went the same route as Square Enix and is doing the movie in CGI. Also not only did they go with a format that gamers are more familiar with they also hired what I believe is the right talent for job. Tekken: Blood Vengeance will be directed by Youichi Mouri the same guy that did the cut scenes for Tekken 5 and Tekken 6 , also on the roster as the movies screen writer is Dai Sato his claim to fame are classics like Cowboy Bebop and Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, which are 2 of my all time favorite Anime series. The task of CG production falls to the guys at Digital Frontier whose hits include Final Fantasy X, Resident Evil 4, Tekken 6 and Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots.

For the most part I’m pretty excited to see how this is going to turn out. I really like the stuff Sqaure Enix has put out in the past and I believe it’s good to have somebody else step into the ring.  The release for Tekken: Blood Vengeance is slated for this summer 2011

I was born in Cleveland and raised in Los Angeles. Grew up with my face in a comic book and my head in the clouds. I have made many life decisions based on what would certain comic book or movie characters would do… this includes joining the United States Marines, getting into fights, starting random businesses and living in Japan for awhile. Some good decisions some bad, but all worth it.
