Additionally, the story takes place between Tekken 2 and 3. We previously saw in the teaser how Ogre attacks the Kazama house, leading to Jin being defeated. Jin turns to his grandfather Heihachi for training. It leads him to fight in the Tournament of Power to get stronger.

Power is everything.’ Jin Kazama learned the family self-defense arts, Kazama-Style Traditional Martial Arts, from his mother at an early age. Even so, he was powerless when a monstrous evil suddenly appeared, destroying everything dear to him, changing his life forever. Angry at himself for being unable to stop it, Jin vowed revenge and sought absolute power to exact it. His quest will lead to the ultimate battle on a global stage — The King of Iron Fist Tournament.
