~*~ Tekken Blood Vengeance (Tekken CG Movie) ~*~

Harada just announced this recently! I'm so excited!!!

Watch the Teaser Trailer Here

I SO hope Yoshimitsu's in it! :-X

I hope this too...

We better start spamming them for Yoshi in it... :D
Seriously, if he's not in... I can't even imagine it. It would be a real shame.

Oooh nice! I can't wait 3:

I'm really glad with the movie, I wouldn't get your hopes up about yoshimitsu. I don't think he'll get a big role in this movie, I could be wrong ofcourse. I'm not the producer or anything. But as far as I know yoshimitsu has never been one of the big or main characters of tekken (storywise). It has always been about the mishima family

What you said is true my friend... But still Yoshi and out of Tekken movie highly improbable... He is iconic for Tekken... How would you identify jin or kazuya or bruce or paul ... Yoshi is easy... Give some one sword and mask .... You got Yoshi... Besides the director need not worry about the facial expressions of Yoshi... So the probability is high... Or its just me who this weird... XD

I do have to agree with Ralenzo here. Yoshimitsu is a grand character, but it will be hard to add him, story-wise, to the current blood vengeance story. I don't see yoshimitsu making alliances with neither Jin nor Kazuya...

I certainly don't see Yoshimitsu throwing himself into these war, father-son, devil gene problems.
He probably does care about the current world situation, but he fixes these problems in his own way with his manjikai group

On the contrary... Its more of a reason to me... One stupid family fights and you have to give it Tekken name and watch... Its not gonna work... And added to his good motives.. Yoshi is worthy as a side story... And getting bryan in middle along with dr.B and alisa... There is a good probability still... Namco always sees Yoshi as weird character so he has his place in Tekken alright ... Expect the same from movie also...besides every Tekken player knows and identifies Yoshi cause he is in all series...apart from that .... Who wouldnt like to see a samurai... And add raven as a diff clan ninja.... So apart from noob fighting of mishima we can have some flash fights...

It's not whether we like him or not, it's just that it's hard to fit him in. It's like in the movie of tekken, he didn't had a big role or anything, jin fought him and he lost very weird btw.
You're saying iconic, he looks different in every tekken game, so it's hard to make him an icon of tekken. Paul is easy, he has long blonde hair like a skyscraper how can you NOT notice him. But what I'm trying to say, tekken has a huge cast of characters, and they are all related one way or the other, but it's impossible to highlight them all in one movie.
I'm not saying I don't want him in there, cuz if he showed up I'd be like "OMG that was yoshimitsu", it's just don't expect too much.

When I say "I hope Yoshi will be in that movie", of course I mean an episode, not a main role. :)
Let's say: I hope that he will appear more often than Raven. :) Raven steals from Yoshi random ninja appearances ^^.

But I will be happy if he even appears for some seconds... but well, he has to be there!

hahahaha yeah, I know what you mean with raven there.

Hmmm... What did she mean ralenzo... All i wanna say is.. If namco wanna make movie for fans... I think Yoshi would be great side line story... How can you involve paul in movie? He is gonna fight bear.. ? To prove he is the toughest guy in universe... And where would you get the legendary law/bruce lee.... As a friend for him... So law and lei would be kept aside i hope... Steve bruce dragonv .....etc dont /cant make up story line.... Any how its easy to show Yoshi in movie with his moves... Like in Tekken 3 intro where his is invisible... Or sword stabs ... He can even block with flash... It would be so cool... What can paul do... Or law... :p oh by the way... In an other Tekken movie i watched... Nina anna christine migule raven law... Most of them didnt live up to moves of Tekken... But Yoshi was cool with sword... To make it even jin was offered weapon... Yoshi was the only character to defeat jin... Almost all.. I hope the director realises how easy it is to cast Yoshi... Or show his moves.... Or to build up a parallel story with Manji's and hidden samurai's etc

Wait a second, do you realize what you are saying. You're saying yoshimitsu a "SPACE NINJA" is easy to realise in a movie, well if you mean with movie the CGI movie , then yeah it's not so hard, but if you mean live action movie, then I really don't understand. Yoshimitsu SUCKED in that tekken movie how can u even compare the yoshimitsu from that movie with the REAL yoshimitsu. It was a disgrace, when I was watching that, I was like "my GOD, that's not yoshimitsu, what was the director thinking" they didn't displayed him like he should've been.

And dude, It's like I said before, the whole cast is linked with the mishima.
- Bruce: one of kazuya's bodyguard
- Nina: Jin's bodyguard
- Steve: Nina's son with no memories of his past, he was "made" in the lab of the mishima's.
- Lei: helped steve, and wants to solve the whole mishima complot etc.
- Dragunov: on a mission to stop mishima I think, Dunno, something like that
- Anna: archenemy of nina and works for kazuya
- Asuka: has the same fightings style as jin's mother and is her cousin
- Raven: Wants to stop the mishima
- Hwoarang: has fought jin mutiple times, they are rivals, and he has seen jin's devil form.
- Beak: hwoarang's master.
- Miguel: wants to take revenge on jin for killing his sister and thousand of other people.

As you can see there are a lot of characters in tekken who resent the mishima and has reasons to interfere or earn a spot in this movie. I just picked these characters as an example.
You're saying "if namco wants to make movies for his fans" you do know that namco is a company right ?
They only care about making money, and how do they make money, by listening to what most of the people want. That's how they work, they don't care about the hardcore fans, they care about selling their products.

I think the likelihood of Yoshimitsu making an appearance in the new movie is very high, actually. Just to clarify, here's a couple quotes from an article about the movie:

“Over the past years that I’ve been working on Tekken, fans have been begging for a full CG Tekken movie,” said Tekken creator and project director Katsuhiro Harada. “This movie is for those fans. Tekken has always been known for its colorful array of characters and background stories, and this movie is just one way of exploring that world from a new angle while bringing insight to the series.”

“We’re thrilled to be taking the characters, history, and legacy of the Tekken universe into a full-length 3D movie,” said Carlson Choi, Vice President of Marketing, NAMCO BANDAI Games America. “Tekken is one of the most recognizable fighting franchises in video games and we believe fans have an enthusiastic appetite for seeing the characters in a new medium. This is a great opportunity for players to learn the histories and motivations behind the fighters who join the King of Iron Fist Tournament.”


You can read the full article here. :D

That being said, it looks like they're going to delve a little deeper into at least some of the characters stories. Yoshimitsu may not be a "main" character like the Mishimas, but he is definitely involved in a lot of other character's stories. I can't imagine that they wouldn't at least give him a brief appearance.

Ralenzo... Do you work at Bandai Namco ? You just see to think like them.... Any thing but Yoshi that is their policy. Any how its Great to have someone who thinks out of the box rather than saying everything about Yoshi is colourful. Ofcourse its my fault , that i argue only about Yoshi and no one else cos i think about him only , it is now that i realise that i am truely obsessed by him, but what you said is absolutely true...every fan thinks about his character that way....so i am gonna keep my hopes down and hope that they dont show Yoshi atall.. In that sucky movie what so ever... Yoshi is special in his kind ways (their aint a character other than julia) who is in Tekken for their selfishness... Revenge , proving themselves... Ofcourse Yoshi also entered for revenge in Tekken 5 but i dont think he would take revenge he is a samurai/ninja.. He will get hold of himself... Afterall revenge doesnot solve anything... Finally i hope they dont show Yoshi because they cant cast a character so nice (World likes bad boys not good guys)..... They are obsessed with Mishimas...

# vijay_kumar_cute : Yoshi also entered for revenge in Tekken 5 but i dont think he would take revenge he is a samurai/ninja.. He will get hold of himself...

Tell that to the 47 Ronin. :P Taking revenge is actually a very samurai/ninja thing to do.

I imagine that, while the main story of the movie will be centered around Xiaoyu and the Mishima dudes, there will be appearances by a considerable number of other Tekken characters. They may not have huge parts, but I think it's totally realistic to at least have them around.
