Retro Gaming: Tekken

Besides Mortal Kombat, one of the fighting games that has changes the world of gaming is without any doubt Tekken. The Iron Fist tournament. The first installment of this game was released in 1994 as an arcade game. One year later the console version of this game was released.

This fighting game also has a storyline, believe it or not. The rich and wealthy Heihachi Mishima. This man announces a big fighting tournament with the grant price of 1 billion dollars. There are 8 competitors, one of them is his son. The undefeated Kazuya Mishima, this guy isn’t in for the money but rather to seek vengeance on Heihachi.
When Kazuya was 5, Heihachi had thrown him of a clif, to see if he really was his son (kind of a strange test, but okay). Kazuya survived but was heavily wounded.
At this moment, the devil appeared in front of him and offered him the power to take vengeance on his father. For the very low price of his soul. Sounds, like  real deal. Anyway, he took the offer.

I found a video of this game and I have to say, this game has not aged well. I remember this being a lot cooler as a kid. But I guess we’ll go for nostalgic value then :’).

  1. Hi there,

    Thanks for an interesting read. :)

    I must say I agree with you – this game has not aged if we consider the graphics. Seems to me that most 2D games stand their ground better than 3D games from the latter half of the 90’s and the beginning of the new century.

      • I loved that! Is that the console with the including Alex Kidd in Miracle World game??

      • well it could be, there were a lot of game/console combo boxed. As a kid I got the one with Sonic. Since that is almost impossible to get, I just got the console.. I also bought streets of rage 2
