Dynamite Entertainment has announced that the world-renowned video game franchise Tekken will be celebrated in a gorgeous hardcover retrospective, via a new licensing deal with Bandai Namco Entertainment Inc. The Tekken art book joins Dynamite’s critically acclaimed Video Games Icons line, and is slated for release in 2018!
Since its original release in 1994, Tekken – one of the first games at the time to incorporate 3D animation – garnered a worldwide following and spawned multiple sequels and spin-offs. Structured around the fictional King of Iron Fist Tournament as sponsored by the Mishima Zaibatsu corporation, Tekken tells the story of the Mishima ancestral curse, pitting the series protagonist Jin Kazama against members of his villainous lineage, while incorporating the colorful stories and aspirations of a wide cast of additional fighters.
The new Tekken retrospective from Dynamite Entertainment will feature in-depth interviews and exclusive, behind-the-scenes looks into the making of the games, as well as the iconic art, design, and imagery from across the Tekken universe. Oversized and hundreds of pages in length, printed on high-quality glossy paper to perfectly capture the vibrant colors of high-res photographs and scans, this commemorative collectible makes the perfect coffee table book or addition to a hardcore gamer’s bookshelves.
