The Tekken: Bloodline release date is confirmed for August 18, 2022.
Netflix Anime on Twitter announced the streaming premiere date via a new Tekken: Bloodline trailer.
Unfortunately, many details are still unclear, and to the die-hard fans of Tekken, this is the norm.
Because to call Tekken just another fighting series is a disservice. The Tekken games have one of the most complicated and outrageous stories in any series.
Will Tekken: Bloodline clear up some of the mysteries, or will fans continue to be confused until Tekken 8? This article will focus on the trailers, but some spoilers for the Tekken series may be unavoidable.
What do we know about the Tekken: Bloodline dubs and cast?
The Tekken: Bloodline dubs will be available in English, Japanese, Koren, Chinese, Filipino, Indonesian, Malay, and Thai.
But only the Japanese voice actors are known, despite the trailer being in English. Isshin Chiba is Jin Kazama, Mamiko Noto is Jun Kazama, Taiten Kusunoki is Heihachi Mishima, and Masanori Shinohara is Kazuya Mishima.
Toshiyuki Morikawa is Hwoarang, Maaya Sakamoto is Ling Xiaoyu, Hochu Otsuka is Paul Phoenix, Seiko Yoshida is Julia Chang, Yumi Toma is Nina Williams, and Hidenari Ugaki is Ganryu. In addition, ancient Ogre/True Orge, Devil Jin, Feng Wei, King 2, Kuma 2, and Leroy Smith are more characters to show up.
What’s interesting about this line-up is that Leroy Smith wasn’t introduced until Tekken 7, while Bloodline is set between Tekken 2 and 3. So does this mean a certain someone from Street Fighter will be present near the end of season one?!
What’s the plot?
Jin was raised by his mother, Jun, and trained in the Kazama style of martial arts. He had to deal with some bullies, but he led an everyday life.
Until Ancient Ogre showed up and killed his mother? Jin wanting to avenge her, sought out his grandfather and trained in the Mishima style until he could compete in the next King of Iron Fist Tournament.
But things are rarely as they seem, and fans are eager to see more of Ogre’s past and the true fate of Jun. So I’d recommend playing the games or watching a ton of YouTube videos before watching Bloodline.
Considering Leroy shouldn’t be there, and Kazuya’s design doesn’t make sense unless that’s supposed to be a flashback in the trailer? If Tekken: Bloodline does half as well as Castlevania did, I can’t wait to see it!
