The classic arcade beat-em-up returns to our screens again in the form of a new live action web series. Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist tells the tale of Ken and Ryu’s training under their master, Gōken.
This is not the first time that a video game has been serialised as Mortal Kombat received the same treatment with some surprisingly good results. It has already run for two season with nineteen ten minute episodes.
I previously mentioned Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist back in November 2013 at The Unheard Nerd, and this new trailer shows us what’s in store for this twelve episode series. Anyone who’s played the classic game will surely recognise some of the fighting moves on display here.
Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist will debut on the Machinima YouTube channel on the 23rd of May 2014.
Witness the origin of the legendary fighting characters in Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist!!
As Ryu & Ken’s training in the Ansatsuken style of Martial Arts intensifies, their Master Gōken is forced to revisit the dark secrets and tragedy of his past that culminated in the loss of his brother Gōki.
