Capcom have announced an official Street Fighter live action series, called Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist, which starts next year.
Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist tells the story of Ryu and Ken learning about their master, Gouken, as they practice the ancient fighting style known as ‘Ansatsuken’ or ‘Assassin’s Fist’ to you and I.
Capcom have seemingly commissioned people behind Street Fighter: Legacy, a fan film which has racked up over eight million views on YouTube.
Project lead Joey Ansah said: “Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist will be what fans have been waiting for. Legacy was a taster; a glimpse of what a live-action Street Fighter should be.
“This takes the story right back to the start – the origins and motivations of Ryu, Ken, Gouken and Akuma. This will become the definitive back-story from which further epic adventures will follow.”
