It can't be not good if Sato Dai participates in working staff.

Looking at the trailer made me want to play Tekken games again.

i say CGI movies are better suited for game adaptations than making them live action movies by hollywood

Looks interesting. I don't know if this should be compared to the live action version though. It's a lot easier to get that anime feel with CGI (like FF7:AC).

I loved the trailer and I wanna watch this~ I hope it'll be indeed good, I want to see some awsome fights~

I must watch this! ;]

So Namco found out that LA adaptation was bad idea :P.
I'll definitely watch this, if anything else, the animation will be awesome(and Namco rarely fails on that part).

Sato Dai? Seems good, I will watch it

This. Even if I am not a fan of the games. Plus the trailer looks kinda nice.

Just knowing it's cgi makes me know it's gonna be better than L-A movie, wich was pretty horrible(although the actress that played Christie was hot). Looks pretty good, saw characters from Tekken 6 and Jinpachi(?) so it's gonna be long, or very fukken complicated... Eventually, just shit but let's hope it's not.
