Namco and Bandai will screen the Tekken: Blood Vengeance CG anime film in 3D in selected U.K. cinemas, before releasing it as a hybrid DVD/3D Blu-Ray in mid-November. The news was mentioned by Manga UK in a tweet.
The film is based on the Tekken fighting videogame series. Digital Frontier, the studio responsible for opening movie footage in the Tekken 5 and Tekken 6 games as well as handling animation production in the Appleseed and Resident Evil: Degeneration films, produced the new film with director Youichi Mouri. Dai Sato (Casshern, Cowboy Bebop, Eureka Seven) wrote the script, and Shinji Higuchi (Evangelion, Gunbuster, Vandread) handled the storyboards.
Below is the film trailer, plus a pair of video clips. The clips show one of the characters, Xiaoyu, rushing to school late on a panda, and in a battle with her adversary Alisa.
