Video: The evolution of the Tekken series

It’s so early in the morning and it’s already a slow news day. However, last night I watched a random video that caught my eye on YouTube. It was a look at how the Tekken series evolved over the years. Youtuber, Alerion, took the time to compare the intro and game footage of each main series Tekken, from the original right through to the upcoming Tekken 7.

Don’t expect to see Tekken Tag Tournament 1 and 2 in the list, but you’ll take a serious trip down memory lane. He’s also stuck with either Kazuya or Jin as his character of choice fighting the last boss of any particular game in the series, so there might be some spoilers ahead for those who missed out and plan to still play it to see what the wacky story is all about. Also, be aware that there is footage of Kazuya taking on the last boss in Tekken 7, so if you don’t want that spoiled for yourself ahead of launch you best avoid that from the 30:00 mark onwards.

I’m sure it’ll bring back many memories for some players and I highly recommend you watch it to see just how far we’ve come with the series. The original… well… it’s not aged well.

Tekken 7 launches on PC, PS4 and Xbox One on 2 June.

Married to a gamer and she kicks my ass at most shooters. If the game is enjoyable I'll play it, no matter the format.
