Tekken was the first big 3D Fighting Game for the Sony Playstation after Battle Arena Toshinden and got a great port of the arcade version which fixed some graphical bugs as well as refining the movesets and looks of the characters. It also got the animated cgi endings for the 8 main characters and an arranged soundtrack as addition.

The first King of The Iron Fist Tournament told the story of Kazuya Mishima who tried to defeated his father Heihachi ..it was also the debut of characters like Yoshimitsu, Nina Williams, King, Jack, Marshall Law. Paul Phoenix and other fighters which are known till today.

The Tekken series became one of the most popular fighting games and the next big part of the series, Tekken 7 was just announced.

Thanks a lot at everyone @ Namco for creating these games!

Tekken in 1995 by Maxwell Nolan

“What I remember the most about Tekken 1 and 2 when they came out was that they felt like actual films to me. I loved Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat but Tekken seemed like the first fighter to really take its story and characters seriously.

The intro cinematics to the ps1 Tekken games really feels like you’re watching a trailer for an upcoming film, and all without any dialogue.

Since Tekken was the ‘new kid on the block’ of fighters, I think it’s very fitting that it was released on the newcomer Playstation. Even though the current Tekken games are available on a variety of platforms, I think people still associate Tekken and Playstation together.

This image I’ve done features the original eight playable characters of the game. For me, Kazuya will always be the face of the series.”
