Not excited about the prospect of a live-action “Tekken” movie? If so, this news may appeal directly to your purist sensibilities. Director Youichi Mouri, the man who crafted the opening movies for the fifth and sixth installments of the “Tekken” video game series, is prepared to kick your teeth in with “Blood Vengeance”, a fully animated 3D film produced by the hard-working folks at Namco Pictures. Since these are the men and women responsible for bringing the games to life, one would assume that this particular endeavor will stay truer to the source material. The key word in that sentence, of course, is assume.
The new trailer for “Tekken: Blood Vengeance” resides below. Fans of the game will be able to properly investigate this title when it arrives in the US on July 26th, 2011.
