The latest screens for Tekken 6 come complete with a convenient fact sheet detailing what some of your favorite characters have been up to since the last King of Iron Fist Tournament.
I find it rather funny that Namco Bandai felt we needed a quick reference to know what characters like Nina Williams, Hwoarang, and Christie Monteiro are doing getting involved in the l6th King of Iron Fist tournament, seeing as their motivations hardly change that much from game to game. Christie is looking for Eddy, and Hwoarang is still trying to win, despite having actually won the last one. The only one who has really changed all that much is Nina, who found and defeated her sister Anna and is slowly becoming boring due to that fact. I'm pretty sure even the most stalwart Tekken fans stopped caring a few games back. We just want to hit each other.
For those of you still determined to read, I've included the short bios after the gallery.
TEKKEN 6 CHARACTER REVEAL

Christie was unable to win The King of Iron Fist Tournament 5. She was struggling to discover a way to save her grandfather when Eddy, who had been by her side, suddenly vanished. She searched everywhere but was unable to find him. Ultimately, she was left with no choice but to return to Brazil alone.
Christie continued her search for Eddy upon returning to Brazil, when surprisingly her grandfather also disappeared from the hospital. The hospital said that Christie's grandfather had been sent to the Mishima Zaibatsu for treatment. Christie figured that Eddy acted against the Mishima Zaibatsu in same manner, but in that case she should have gotten some communication from him. She could not help but feel that there must be something sinister regarding Eddy's disappearance. When The King of Iron Fist Tournament 6 was announced, Christie headed for Japan to get in contact with the Mishima Zaibatsu and to find out where Eddy and her grandfather had gone.
