Machinima has released the full trailer for their new web-series, Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist. Street Fighter was one on my favorite games growing up, but it never really seemed to translate very well to film. This might be the best adaptation we ever get because I seriously don't think any studio is going to attempt to make another Street Fighter movie ever again.
The live-action series comes from Ansah, who worked on the fan film Street Fighter: Legacy. He also stars in the series as Akuma, and co-wrote the script with Christian Howard. The series also stars Mike Moh as Ryu, Togo Igawa as Gōtetsu, Akira Koieyama as Gōken, Gaku Space as Gōki, Mark Killeen as Mr. Masters, and Hal Yamanouchi as Senzo.
Through the coming-of-age story of Ken & Ryu, we are shown the back story of some of the game’s most iconic characters, and over the course of the series we will see how the past, present, and future of all of those characters are intertwined, as the battle to become Ansatsuken Master threatens to tear apart another generation of brothers.
As Ryu & Ken's training in the Ansatsuken style of Martial Arts intensifies, their Master Goken is forced to revisit the dark secrets and tragedy of his past that culminated in the loss of his brother Goki.
All 12 episodes of the will be available to watch on Machinima on May 23rd.
