TEKKEN: THE DARK HISTORY OF MISHIMA

Takashi Yano



 

One of the most popular video game classics is officially novelized at last. TEKKEN? has been sold more than 40 million units worldwide, filled with action and humor, loved by youths of all ages. A must read for the game lovers and readers for action packed martial arts adventure novels alike.


Jin Kazama, the new leader of the Mishima Zaibatsu, the world dominating mega-conglomerate, has collapsed into a mysterious coma. But that doesn't stop his father Kazuya Mishima from coming after him. The Mishima Zaibatsu had been Kazuya's before Jin took it from him in the King of Iron Fist Tournament 5. Intent on revenge, Kazuya established G. Corporation, with its lethal Jack robots, in order to declare open war against his son.


Hidden in the secret chambers of rural Russia under the care of Dr. Bosconovitch, Jin sleeps for no apparent reason. But even here he is far from safe. In a family where fathers kill sons, and sons kill fathers, it is Jin's fate to fight for his life. Kazuya's father Heihachi Mishima, aging but still greedy and ambitious, is also drawn into the battle. The events lead inexorably back to the deserted island where the Mishima Clan was first given their demonic powers, 450 years ago, and where fathers and sons again face off in an epic battle, winner take all. Ancient secrets are revealed, alliances are formed and broken, demons emerge, and fists fly in this action-packed thriller. Tekken favorites including Dr. Bosconovitch, Nina Williams, Eddy Gordo, Bruce Irvin, Anna Williams, Sergei Dragunov, Raven, and Lars Alexandersson all take sides in the war. Will the demon curse reign forever? Can anything stop the Mishima bloodlust?


This is the official translation of the popular Japanese novel published in 2011, and the first English-language Tekken novelization.
