Tekken 7's retro recap is hilarious, and surprisingly effective


Catch up with the Mishima Clan

If you aren't all caught up on Tekken 7's story (maybe you missed a few here and there), this official retro recap video from Bandai Namco has you covered. As part of the recent trend from big Japanese publishers, the clip (which is part one of a series) blends in humor with an easy to follow, bite-sized recap format.

Along with its absurdist humor, you'll get a crash course of the narrative of this equally absurd series. While it seems a little silly at times this series is all too self-aware, especially with its inclusion of joke characters that sometimes play big parts in the story.

Tekken 7: Fated Retribution will hit the PC, PS4, and Xbox One on June 2 in the west.
