Various Artists

Out Now

Editors note:
There are so many artists, that are part of the Sound Team. But I will be sure to include songs, with the producer credit, and a link to their artist bio page. Some have history within the video game industry, that date back to past games, or something you might have played in the past.

The 8th entry in the long series is finally here! Plus it is bringing some new tunes, and hype! For longtime fans, this series is well known for delivering “block rockin beats” and heavy hitting emotions. Tekken and its game soundtracks, for many years has celebrated life, passion, and energy that drives us to keep going, never give up. What makes Tekken more special, is that the series is celebrating its 30th anniversary!! So to help celebrate this event, as a longtime fan, I am honored to share what I love about the series, its new entry, and the astonishing soundtrack.

The vibe within Tekken utilizes many different kinds of genres, which we love to cover on this awesome site. So to celebrate along with Tekken, and with pride. Happy to cover this incredible game soundtrack

Namco Sound Team
For many years, this crew has delivered memorable, and unforgettable soundtracks. However the club scene inspired the original game many years ago. Even now, 30 years later, the series still dives into the sound that brought it to life. Taking on new forms, with new characters joining the roster.

Unlike other fighting games right now, characters within this series have their own theme song, and stage. Other competition may have background music, but not this game. Depending on the personality of the character, their theme song can be hard, heavy, beat driven, or even orchestral with a blend of edm (think of Trans Syberian Orchestra, Moby, The Chemical Brothers, Above and Beyond for example). But put their sound style into a blender, and this is what you would receive, music on another level. Tekken prides itself on presentation, character, and that spark that beats within our hearts.

Tracklist: 42 songs total
By the way, Normal is the standard stage theme mix, Climax is the hybrid, berserk rendition. Some are in fact, character themes, which adds something special to the experience when you play the game, or listen to the soundtrack.
