Tekken: King of the Iron Fist
[Episode 14] This month barSILENCE is fighting the Mishima Zaibatsu to be the King of the Iron Fist like it's 1995, while we listen to the soundtracks of the Arcade and Playstation 1 versions of Tekken and Tekken 2!
Let's dive into the catchy, bouncy, and energetic sounds of the Rave War from these genre-defining 3D fighters from the mid-90s. We'll hear the worldly-themed tracks of the original, alongside the character-based themes of the sequel that were composed and arranged by Yoshie Arakawa, Yoshie Takayanagi, Shinji Hosoe, Nobuyoshi Sano, and other members of the Namco Sound Team.
These tracks are sure to get you ready for fisticuffs and throw your vanquished enemies off of a cliff!
