It appears that this run of Tekken will take place between Tekken 2 and Tekken 3. We find Jin Kazama and his mother Jun engaged in training Jin on Yakushima. However, Jin loses his mother and embarks on a journey of revenge against Ogre under the training regime of his grandfather. This storyline seems to follow the Tekken 3 storyline and results in a showdown at The King Of Iron Fist Tournament
There is little information on the production team behind Bloodline, however, Barnstorm Design Labo may be at work on this project, and the animation style seems similar to Netflix anime adaptations Kengan Ashura and Hi-Score Girl.
