Street Fighter fans rejoice! The team that brought you the wildly popular fan film Street Fighter: Legacy (below) has been tapped to create an official live-action series focusing on Ken and Ryu’s early days. Called Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist, the show will be written by Joey Ansah and Christian Howard, who created the Legacy video that proved to many that the Capcom game had a live-action future beyond the 1994 Jean-Claude Van Damme movie.
“Our priority is to stay true to the appearance, fighting techniques and canon of the Street Fighter game,” Howard said. “At the same time we’ve managed to make this an emotion and character driven story, which will surprise viewers who might just be expecting a super faithful fight fest!”
The series will be distributed by Content Media Corporation.
