Finally, Namco also revealed that Tekken: Blood Vengeance, a CG animation flick, is in the works and will hit cinemas in 3D this summer. The movie takes place between the events of Tekken 5 and Tekken 6, and is being billed as a “suspense action film.”
Furthermore, series producer Katsuhiro Harada also encouraged everyone to put the recent Hollywood adaptation to the back of their minds:
“That doesn’t have anything to do with it this time,” Harada said. “We’re not trying to rewrite those wrongs. Fans are always asking us for a 3D movie. This is our response to them… We want to make a movie that everyone can enjoy, though. Not just Tekken fans.”
Popular voice actor Gouri Daisuke (voice of Heihachi Mishima) died at age 57 from extreme blood loss in his arm. His body was discovered by a passerby in the Nakano-ku region, and investigators have reported that the cause of his death was via suicide.
