After the depressing news that is Tekken the movie, I’ve tried to find ways to erase what has been seen via Tekken-related good news. One of which was the already published cosplay compilation, check it out here. This is my second try at being a bearer of good news in the world of Tekken.
As everyone knows, Tekken is definitely no sleeping franchise. Since its release, it has faithfully released sequel after sequel introducing new elements for battle and unravelling more of its plot each time. As of press time, we are expecting the release of one of the most highly anticipated crossover games yet: Tekken vs. Streetfighter. Of course, let’s not also forget Tekken 7~
This brings me to the good news I’m excited to tell you about.
Want her back in the Tekken storyline?
MAKE IT HAPPEN.
Have your voice heard and log on your twitter accounts as you read about the news I bring:
Tekken honcho Katsuhiro Harada has announced, earlier this month, on Tekken Nation and later crossposted on his official Facebook and Twitter account, that he is considering on BRINGING BACK Jun Kazama on Tekken 7. This would also be brought up again during an interview with the said household name during Gamescom in Germany careof Gamespot.
However, the possibility is still not set in stone. Due to the low fan turn out of Kunimitsu from Tekken 2, the first brought back from ‘MIA’ status, Harada is unsure whether it is worth the effort. For this to happen, a condition must be made: he must have an increased number of followers on his twitter account.
He would also like to hear from fans themselves: asking their opinion and point of view on the matter. Meaningful posts only people. You can take the SPAM out the window.
Harada confirmed that Jun isn’t dead. Rather she’s missing with her present whereabouts unknown. For story purposes, she is presumed dead. Now that you think about it her circumstances were quite ambiguous in the first place.
Jun Kazama is one of the most influential women in the world of Tekken. It is her presence that has moved the two main leads of the plot: father and son, Kazuya Mishima and Jin Kazama respectively, to live out their lives as they have had; such that it is no exaggeration to say that she is their raison d’etat: reason for being. Even with her loss, she continues to play an important role in their lives.
Let’s admit it: Jun’s loss in game was abrupt and unforeseen. Fans were disappointed and unhappy with their favourite character missing from the ranks. Only in fan works and in what ifs did Jun continue to exist for those who love her.
Her return will definitely be something to look forward to—that is if we make it happen.
Let’s band together shall we?
So log on to tour twitter accounts and ‘follow’ for Jun’s return to Tekken.
