Prepare for 'Tekken 7' with a retro recap of Heihachi, Kazuya and Jin Kazama's troubles

The Mishima clan has always been the violent, dysfunctional heart of fighting series Tekken, and ahead of the release of Tekken 7 this retro-style video will give you a little primer on bad grandpa Heihachi, his son Kazuya and grandson Jin Kazama.

Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada promises Tekken 7 will bring a conclusion to the long and messy Mishima saga and provide answers to Tekken mysteries like the "devil gene" and presumably why Heihachi thinks throwing a five-year old off a cliff is acceptable parenting. 

Tekken 7 will be released in the US on June 7 and will be the ninth installment in the Tekken series. New characters include Heihachi's wife and Kazuya's mother Kazumi Mishima and Akuma from Capcom's Street Fighter.
