The first Tekken appeared in Japanese arcades back in 1994. Being just a good clone of the brilliant Virtua Fighter (1993), he did not gain much popularity. While Tekken was visibly superior to Sego's fighting game in terms of graphics, there was still a lot to be changed in terms of gameplay. The turning point was 1995, when the game was released on the latest console of the time - the Sony PlayStation. The tandem of a powerful gaming console and a promising fighting game turned out to be very successful, becoming an excellent foundation for a long and fruitful cooperation: gamers began to catch up with game stores, who were only interested in one question, “Do you have Tekken?”
