Ananova is reporting that Douglas Maxwell's play Helmet (based on Tekken) is showing tonight at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh as part of the Paines Plough theatre company's 10-week UK tour. Helmet employs digital animation, hip-hop choreography and a pulsating soundtrack according to the news site. If anybody in the area is heading down, we'd love to hear what it's like. Tekken Tag Tournament, the last game in the beat 'em up series upon which the play is based, was recently re-released on Sony's budget 'Platinum' label.
