Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist


Recommended Posts


Capcom USA, Inc. and Assassin's Fist Limited have announced that they have signed an agreement to produce a live-action series based on Capcom's successful Street Fighter game franchise.

According to the press release, the show, set to debut in 2013, will be called Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist. This series is described as a thrilling, multi layered show that will take the audience back to the formative years of the iconic characters, Ryu and Ken, as they live a traditional warrior’s life in secluded Japan. The boys are, unknowingly, the last practitioners of the ancient fighting style known as ‘Ansatsuken’ (Assassin’s Fist). The series follows them as they learn about the mysterious past of their Master, Gouken, and the tragic and dark legacy of the Ansatsuken style. Can their destiny be changed…or will history repeat itself?

Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist is being produced by Jacqueline Quella (Don't Tell and Tobe Hooper's The Toolbox Murders), and comes from the mind of Joey Ansah, creator of the successful fan film, Street Fighter: Legacy:

Legacy, according to the release, received a rapturous reception from fans and critics, becoming one of the most successful YouTube movies of all time in the film & animation category, with over 8 million views.

Christian Howard, who starred as 'Ken' in Legacy and has co-written the script for Assassin's Fist with Joey Ansah, said, "Our priority is to stay true to the appearance, fighting techniques and canon of the Street Fighter game. 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!."

Check out their Comic-Con announcement video below:

"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," said Joey Ansah, announcing the movie. “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.”

As always, we'll keep you posted on any Street Fighter news as it develops. This show could be quite interesting...as long as it turns out nothing like this:
