OBSCURE O.V.A.S, *Tekken

“You’ve played the game, now see the….” How often have you heard those words used to plug an video game-based anime? Based on the first two Tekken games, this 2-episode OVA combines some elements of the Mortal Kombat movie with Jurassic Park.

The Mishima Corp. plots to take over the world with its hybrid invisible dinosaurs and robot troopers. The main story involves Kazuya vs. Heihachi with Jun trying to lead Kazuya away from the dark side.

Like alot of ADV Films releases, this “movie” is really a 2-episode OVA spliced into a single feature. The dub of Tekken features music by the Offspring and Stabbing Westward, plus the DVD has a rarity in English dubs: a French track. The action’s okay. This anime also follows in the the Tekken 3 video game with the appearance of a very young Jin. Too bad most of the other fighters barely even get any speaking parts!
