New York Comic 2017: Bandai Namco’s Tekken Joins Dynamite’s Art Book Line

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.

For 40 years a civil war has raged within the Mishima family, one that has pitted father against son, grandfather against grandson, for control of the Mishima Zaibatsu Corporation.

The King of Iron Fist Tournament – a legendary martial arts contest that pits the world’s strongest fighters against each other in the quest for fortune and glory – has been home to many such battles.

After disappearing following his skirmish with the demon Azazel, Jin Kazama has recently resurfaced, recruiting several of the world’s greatest fighters to help him retrieve a rare artefact from within the Zaibatsu archives.

Still struggling to control the Devil Gene which rages inside of him, Jin hopes to secure the artefact before it can fall into the hands of his diabolical grandfather Heihachi.
