Now THIS is how you make a Fighting Game Movie!

STOP THE PRESSES! STOP THE PRESSES! Hot from the Dubai Event, Katsuhiro Harada and Namco-Bandai have just announced something that fans and gamers have been dreaming about FOREVER. A true-blue Tekken movie. But not any watered-down live-action interpretation. No, THIS is the real deal- a fully-CG motion picture created by the only ones who know how to bring imagery and action of Tekken to true, unfettered, unadulterated life- the makers of the CG Intro Cinematics for the actual games. Tekken: Blood Vengeance!

Yep, this is being directed by Youichi Mori, who did the openings for Tekken 5 and 6, while the screenplay is by Dai Sato, whose credits include Cowboy Bebop and Ghost in the Shell: Standalone Complex. From the look of the 1-minute but chocked-to-the-rafters-full-of-kickass-action trailer, it takes on the events of Tekken 6.
Man, one minute of this trailer is better than that whole live-action Tekken film. My God. I…. I need to lie down. This is just too awesome. The CG 3D Tekken movie is set for Summer 2011. Not too far away I hope! WOOOHOOO!!!

The Soul Calibur V teaser trailer!

As for the new Soul Calibur, the game has now finally been announced and it’s entitled… Soul Calibur V. According to game director Daishi Odashima, this was made possible by the fans. It will be a ‘New Chapter’ in the series and a proper sequel, set 17 years after the events in SCIV. The game will star a new character named Patroclus, whom SC fans will know is the son of Sophitia. Wow! A 17 year time jump? Who will return? Who will stay? What’s gonna happen??!

SCV will be released on the PS3 and Xbox360 sometime in 2012. More details will supposedly be revealed at this year’s E3. Stay tuned in about 8 hours when the Namco-Bandai Countdown page runs down and reveals its contents.

The Tale of Souls and Swords… CONTINUES!
