Netflix has announced a new anime based on “Tekken,” the massively popular fighting video game franchise from Japanese video game developer Namco. 
The series, titled “Tekken: Bloodline,” was announced with the release of its first teaser trailer on Netflix’s YouTube channel on Saturday. 
 
“Power is everything,” the video’s description states. “Jin Kazama learned the family self-defense arts, Kazama-Style Traditional Martial Arts, from his mother at an early age. 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.”
