Will they answer the Asuka/Jin connection? - Tekken 7 Message Board for PlayStation 4 - GameFAQs
And Harada already said it isn't that simple with Jin/Asuka being just cousins They threw her in just to have Jun's moveset back in the game. Asuka Kazama is a video game character in the Tekken video game series by Namco Bandai Games. Introduced in Tekken 5 in , Asuka is a brash and hot -headed Japanese teenager who is best known for her archrivalry with fellow teenager Lili. Through her father, she is also related to both Jun Kazama and her son, Jin both Jun Kazama and her son, Jin Kazama, although these . message board topic titled "Jun and Kazuya's Relationship" - Page 3. God bless him for it. I would take it over Asuka/Lili any day.
Given the ruckus fans have been making since their disappearance post-Tekken 2 Tag doesn't countone can assume that Jun Kazama and Kunimitsu have this going for them as well.
Lili is really popular for someone not involved in the whole Devil Gene business. She even appears as the sole Tekken representative in Queen's Gate: Spiral Chaos and also pops up in SFxT. She was also among the first characters revealed for Tekken 6, seen alongside Jin and Hwoarang in the E3 trailer.
And Tag 2 is giving her a spectacular, exclusive costume for her. In fact, it's gotten to the point where she has usurped Nina's position as the the poster girl for the Tekken series, having become the focus of the marketing and being among the first characters revealed for the game, whereas Nina had to wait until Fated Retribution to get in.
Although it should be noted Nina has been the poster girl for Fated Retribution and has a major role in the story, likely due to fans backlash over her exclusion from the arcade edition of Tekken 7. There has been some fan speculation that Angel came into existence because of Jun's presence. Heihachi's tenure as a Guest Fighter in the PS2 version of Soulcalibur II most notably, Heihachi accidentally cutting his hand with a fragment of Soul Edge has a few fans wondering about a possible connection between Soul Edge and the Mishima bloodline.
However, it should be noted that his participation in the series is non-canon. Quite a few people are convinced that Ogre is holding Jun's severed head in the arcade intro to 3. Alternatively, this could be how Jin interpreted the events, seeing as he was knocked unconscious by Ogre. Heihachi sought the Devil Gene in 4 so that he combine his genetic material with Ogre's to gain immortality or create a new lifeform.
That her name is a phonetic spelling of Julia's initials, a video of TTT2's location test showed Jaycee has a lot of Julia's attacks, and both Jaycee and Julia having the same voice continued to fuel the fires until producer Katsuhiro Harada finally confirmed it in an interview at E3 To add to this, Ganryu, in his ending, happens to walk past Jaycee's room while she is showering, and he decides to watch, not for perverted reasons, obviouslybut to see if Jaycee is his 'beloved Julia-Chan', as he suspects.
He gets arrested for this. Many players assumed that her choice in fighting style was done to differentiate Julia from her mother. With Michelle joining the console version's roster, it's a safe assumption they were right. It is very often agreed that Tekken 2 is this compared to Tekken 1, and Tekken 3 is this compared to Tekken 2. Also, Tekken Tag Tournament 2 compared to Tekken Tag Tournament 1 and Tekken 6 which came out immediately before it, and uses largely the same engine.
Fans believe Wang to be Xiaoyu's grandfather due to Xiaoyu addressing him as such. In this case, Xiao was calling him "Grandpa" in the same way that a person would say "Gramps" to a random elder.
They are distant relatives and Wang trained her at one time, but Wang is not her grandfather. For a long while, most fansites had the story of Bruce being Lei Wulong's police partner, who lost his memory on the plane crash and was manipulated by Kazuya into becoming his bodyguard.
This seems to be a confusion from his canon story, where Lei's actual nameless partner was with Bruce in the plane.
What's the relation b/w Jin and Asuka? - Tekken 6 Message Board for PlayStation 3 - GameFAQs
Most of Roger and Alex's story in Tekken 2, probably due to them having little to none back then. Jun's role as Kazuya's Morality Pet in The Motion Picture is sometimes used to depict their relationship for the series proper. Then again, Kazuya's statements of her in Tekken 6 see Alternate Character Interpretation seem to enforce this case. Fans interpret Angel's T2 profile in a way that defies her ending movies.
While those endings are not in main continuity but ARE canonthey still reflect the character herself Paul's endings wouldn't show him as a famous mathematician or a professional equestrian, why would Angel's be so contrary to her identity as Devil's mask if that were true?
Additionally, there's been misinterpretation of Angel's battle with Devil over Kazuya's soul. As stated by Harada himself, Angel is actually not a part of Kazuya's soul specifically, the little remaining good ; she's simply a supernatural entity vying with Devil over Kazuya's fate. Although in general the majority of pairing in the series are pretty obvious and almost have no intrigue, it seems that so many people like to pair Jin with Hworang and Lili with Asuka as Bi the Way.
This perhaps even led to the fact that from the fifth game of Hworang was switched to Friendly Rivalry with Steve. In addition, fans also like to pair characters that have a temporary intersection in some games, for example Lee with Anna or Jin with Asuka. Averted in the movie: Averted with Gary Daniels as Bryan Fury, who's a real-life kickboxer, and what Bryan practices is kickboxing, so it makes sense Bryan would be portrayed by a real-life kickboxer.
The later Tekken games have been criticized for how whacky and out-of-place the new characters are, with many of them being clearly anime-influencedand that they didn't fit in game which was supposed to be game about fighters using relatively realistic martial art styles. It reached a boiling point with Lucky Chloe, a kawaii pop idol girl who speaks in Gratuitous English and fights using dance movesmaking her quite possibly the most hated character for western audiences.
However, these kinds of whacky characters have been present since the beginning — Yoshimitsu was a cyborg ninja that seemed a little out of place amid a roster of martial artists.
Not to mention KumaJack botsand Roger were in the first two games as well. And the anime influence? Been there since 3, with Xiaoyu's anime-style ending and her character hitting most of Genki Girl cliches found in anime. Even without the counter, from 3 onwards it causes the opponent to roll Bryan's Spinning Roundhouse did the samesetting them up for a running attack follow-up. Heihachi's Iron Hand in 5 see below is a spiritual successor. Bryan's Mach Breaker in 3; decent power, really fast and sets up several options quite nicely.
Tends to get blocked more in later games. Ogre's Waning Moon in 3 was considered too good. It's still a pretty good move in later incarnations but not to the same level as in that game. Similarly, Roger and Alex's wind-up punch. Had a charging time, but it was fast enough to murder a knocked-down player.
Was nerfed with Roger Jr. And now the inputs have been simplified again for TTT2, but the damage itself was nerfed, as with most other unblockables. Bob's Cracker Jacker move in 6. It's fast, has decent damage, has a large hitbox, and is hardly ever blocked by the CPUeven in Ultra Hard mode. Heihachi's incarnation in 5. As you can see, his jab combos can punish you like there's no tomorrow and his juggles are dangerous. Summed up by this comment: His Laser Scraper combo if properly-timed and a recovery time that was faster in most situations than most of the cast gave him viable tools to constantly apply pressure on his opponents.
You're looking at the sole occupant of top tier in high-level Tournament Play. Jin endured quite a bit of Tier-Induced Scrappy disdain during this time. Steve Fox in the original PS2 version of 5 had an absurdly high priority on his jabstrings. And if that wasn't enough, he is the only character to have a legit infinite in any Tekken ever, making him the true Game Breaker.
In fact, he was considered a main reason for the Dark Resurrection update to 5. In 3, Guest Fighter Gon is this due to his really small size. To a certain extent, Dr. Bosconovitch is this as well for almost the same reasons; he can only fight either from a crouching position or from lying on the ground; he can't stand upright for more than a second.Tekken Tag 2 Jun & Asuka Rank Match (Seiryu to Suzaku)
Stubborn opponents suddenly become much easier if hit with a launcher and then tag rushed. An uppercut for juggle damage later takes care of most of her opponent's health. Their expanded tricky moves in the Tag games makes them even more so. Furthermore, it can go into 3-ring circus, which can loop back into triple sweeps, giving them an infinite with a fair amount of mix up. Hwoarang had a hideous one that's since been patched out of Tag 2.
Note that unlike Tag 2, there's no recoverable life in Tekken 7. To be fair, Hwoarang's wall combos potentially dealt that much damage already even in Season 1, so it remains to be seen if it will be patched out this time around.
Her pre- and post-match quotes demonstrate her confidence. Asuka speaks Japanese with a very heavy Kansai region dialect. In Tekken 5 and Tekken 5: Dark ResurrectionAsuka's default outfit in which she is usually portrayed in official art and CG renders is a blue halter top and bluish white short shorts changed to red and black respectively in Dark Resurrectionwith matching motorcycle and elbow protectors.
One is a Japanese parochial schoolgirl uniform with a yellow sweater vest and pleated skirt, seen during both her intro and her prologue. The other is a visual kei geisha -like outfit with high-heel sandals.
In Tekken 6Asuka retains her default costumes from Dark Resurrection, including the school uniform but excluding the geisha costume.
Asuka Kazama - Wikipedia
Her Tekken 7 default costume is a matsuri outfit, composed of a vest with decorative cords and a bra top, sarashi cloth-wrap shorts and open-toed, boot-like sandals. Asuka fights in the "Kazama-style Traditional Martial Arts" discipline, which is the same style that is used by her relative Jun Kazama.
