Jun Kazama In Consideration For Tekken Again

By Ishaan . October 23, 2010 . 10:29am


Back in August, Tekken series producer, Katsuhiro Harada, touched upon what happened to Jun Kazama following the events of Tekken 2. While the popular theory is that she’s dead, Harada revealed that this wasn’t the case.


“After the release of Tekken 3, I have officially stated to the press that objectively, and officially, Jun’s whereabouts are unknown,” he wrote in a post on the Tekken Nation forums. Speaking to whether Jun would make a comeback in a future game, Harada said he was unsure as to just how strong demand for her really was.


The solution he provided was for fans to follow him on Twitter and share their opinion, which would help give him a more realistic idea as to whether or not Jun had a strong enough following for a revival. Now, 5,000 Twitter followers later, it would appear, he’s convinced.


“Yeah we have already started a consider & discussion (about Jun),” Harada replied via tweet to a fan who asked for a Jun update.


Harada’s next Tekken game is Tekken Tag Tournament 2, which was revealed last month. Incidentally, the last game Jun appeared in was the original Tekken Tag Tournament, which is considered non-canonical in the Tekken storyline.


Harada is also working on Tekken vs. Street Fighter, although, that project is farther off.

  • They need to focus all efforts of Tekken vs Street Fighter, it seems like it will be madly appealing. Also she better be in the game, fighting games need more presence from female fighters.

    • True and what about Tekken Tag Tournament 2. She should definitely pop up there along with Kunimitsu.

    Wasn’t Jun suppose to be Unknown (the character, not her whereabouts) in the original Tag? Yea, that somewhat creepy, glowy-eyed, yet strangely hot lady covered in splatters of silver paint possessed by a wolf demon. Was there a story behind that?

    While we’re at it, can we bring Forrest, the younger Bruce Lee, back to replace his aging dad?

    • Unknown was originally supposed to be Jun’s sister IIRC but then something came about and it went no where since TTT was’t treated as canon.

  • puchinri

    I’d like Jun, Gon and Dr. B.

    And I guess it’s good that they even ask the fans what they want (in a way), but why is it always necessary for years of beginning and certain actions (twitter route, etc) before a dev is convinced to add just one character to anything?

  • shion16

    explain me the story plz .-.

  • Souji Tendou

    Great, the power of fans. As if the story of Tekken can’t get worst than the current one.

    • MemeticRichard

      Lol, comon man. Who actually plays Tekken for the story? XD

      I mean, seriously. Isn’t it all about Panda beating the crap out of Heihachi? Or Christie’s fine physique? Or her…I dunno, thighs or feet? For the really creepy, stalkery crowd…

      Huh? I just hopped on the tekken bandwagon after Street FighterX Tekken was announced.Bought Tekken 6, watched the recaps, did a little research, played through some of the arenas..I really enjoy the story and the whole Tekken universe.

  • cmurph666

    Tekken’s story makes my head hurt.

  • What ever happened to that little dinosaur thing from tekken 2 or 3 i think? Loved using him as a kid

  • Tekken story was pretty decent till after the 3rd installment. Once the the main writer left, that was all she wrote…..I was pretty upset there wasnt a story for TTT.
