Group DescriptionTekken (鉄拳, "Iron Fist") is a series of versus fighting games by Namco. The series' overarching story focuses on the powerful and corrupt Mishima Zaibatsu, a corporation run by the fighter Heihachi Mishima. Much of the plot is dedicated to the rivalry between Heihachi, his son Kazuya, and his grandson Jin, who are infused with the Devil gene and try to overthrow each other.
The gameplay is close to the Virtua Fighter series in attempting to emulate realistic combat. A trademark feature of the series is the assignment of separate buttons for each of the player character's limbs. Later installments also made use of 3D environments for sidestepping and other abilities.
