Welcome to the fifth incarnation of Tekken Zaibatsu which launched
in June 2011. The previous revision (4.5) launched in the summer of
2009 to celebrate the site's 10th anniversary.
Tekken Zaibatsu's roots go back to the infamous Tekken Web Project
Tekken 2 website ran by Slikatel, which evolved in to Tekken.Net around
the Tekken 3 arcade release in the summer of 1997.
Shortly after the Tekken 3 PlayStation release in 1998, inspired by
Slikatel's Tekken 2 tribute movies, Castel started producing a series
of Tekken 3 combo movies which were featured on various web sites.
With the release of Tekken Tag Tournament on the horizon in 1999 tragic
had lost interest in maintaining the Tekken.Net web site and Castel
took over the torch and Tekken Zaibatsu launched in the summer of 1999
as an affiliate intending to concentrate on the Mishima
characters. But soon after the Tekken Tag Tournament arcade release the
site was expanded to cover all of the game's characters.
The site quickly gained popularity in the community and was rapidly
outgrowing the Tekken.Net hosting solution provided by tragic. In
January 2000, Tekken Zaibatsu moved to it's own domain and introduced
a new design which was easier to maintain. The 2.0 launch also marked
the start of our online community forums.
Early 2001, it was once again time for a face lift and Tekken Zaibatsu
3.0 launched on 2nd March, 2001 introducing expanded game coverage
and re-organization of the content.
