After the King of Iron Fist Tournament 4 ended Heihachi Mishima is leading Kazuya Mishima to Hon-Maru Temple to fight Jin Kazama , where Heihachi hopes that an epic battle will ensue ending with him being able to steal both Kazuya's and Jin's "devil genes." Said battle ends with Jin defeating both of them and flying away in devil form. The opening cinematic of Dark Resurrection begins with Kazuya and Heihachi regaining consciousness in the temple only to find that a crap load of Jack-4s are now descending on their location and they must fight. At first they fight together defeating many of the Jacks, but Heihachi, not as young as he used to be, begins to tire and Kazuya uses this opportunity to throw him into the Jacks before transforming into his devil form and flying away. Jacks-4s quickly begin to swarm Heihachi, piling on top of him and to Heihachi's horror they reveal they are about to self destruct. The explosion was thought to have killed Heihachi, but he's still kicking. The blast did manage to awaken Heihachi's dad Jinpachi Mishima, who was imprisoned underground by his son years ago when Heihachi overthrew him and took control of the Mishima Zaibatsu. Anyway soon after the King of Iron Fist Tournament 5 is announced and all of the characters have their respective reasons to enter.
The fight mechanics are pulled off nicely and are mostly the same as you would expect. Each button is tied to a limb with square and triangle being your arms and X and O being your legs. Then the game lets you sets the L and R button to any combination of the four you would like. There are plenty of stages to choose from with a total of 35, there are also many gameplay modes. The roster for the game includes 34 playable characters including 32 returning ones and 2 new characters, Sergei Dragunov and Emily "Lili" Rochefort, plus a returning character, Armor King. Dark resurrection also features a character customization mechanic which will let you do anything from simply changing the colors of the characters costume to something crazy like putting Nina in a sexy nurse's outfit with a giant syringe on her back.
