Deep within China, accessible only by crossing over the highest, nearly impassable mountain passes in the region, lives an ancient warrior clan - known only as the 'Iron Fist'. Their ancient scrolls predict that one day, a warrior will arise, the greatest that ever lived. In their quest to seek out this great warrior, they have since hundreds of years been organizing a tournament. A tournament where elite warriors from all over the world face off in a battle to prove their supremacy. A tournament where the undefeated reigning champion has always been a member of the Iron Fist clan.
