Watch The First Teaser For STREET FIGHTER: ASSASSIN'S FIST!

It has taken five years to fully accomplish for a franchise that has seen its fair handful of cinematic misses in well over the last twenty years. On Friday though, Capcom's loyal and longtime cult gaming followers finally had their patience rewarded with the long-awaited teaser for the upcoming new serial feature film, Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist. The teaser and forthcoming series has already screened in front of a select number of eyes much to the delight of Capcom and crtics online who have lended nothing but words of praise for the new series which looks to become the first live-action project based on the highly successful tournament game line to stay true to its origins after winning fan approval with the 2010 viral short, Street Fighter: Legacy.

Produced by Jacqueline Quella, and created by actors Joey Ansah and Christian Howard (Green Street 3, Warrioress), Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist is written and directed by Ansah who also stars with Howard, in addition to fellow lead actor Mike Moh in their respective roles as iconic characters Akuma, Ken and Ryu. Actress Hyunri stars as Sayaka and actor Togo Igawa as Master Gôtetsu, with actors Akira Koieyama and Shogen as the older and younger renditions of Gôken, and actor Gaku Space as Akuma's younger self, Gôki. Actors Hal Yamanouchi and Mark Killeen round out the cast as Senzo and Mr. Masters, respectively.

Los Angeles, CA, March 14, 2014 – Machinima, Assassin’s Fist Limited, and Capcom U.S.A., Inc. announce today, in partnership with Producer Jacqueline Quella, and Director Joey Ansah, that STREET FIGHTER: ASSASSIN’S FIST will debut in its entirety on Machinima, the number-one global video entertainment network for young males. The exact air date will be announced soon. The live-action series, which is distributed by Content Media, is the brainchild of Ansah (The Bourne Ultimatum, Snow White and the Huntsman), a member of the creative team behind the hugely successful fan film Street Fighter: Legacy—which has received almost 5,000,000 views to date. Ansah, who also stars in the series (Akuma), wrote the script with Christian Howard, who reprises his role as Ken Masters from the original fan film. The series also stars Mike Moh as Ryu, Togo Igawa (47 Ronin, Memoirs of a Geisha, The Last Samurai) as Gōtetsu, Akira Koieyama as Gōken, Gaku Space as Gōki, Mark Killeen (300: Rise of an Empire, The Dark Knight Rises) 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.
“This series was meant for Machinima,” said Allen DeBevoise, Chairman, Co-Founder and CEO of Machinima. “We have successfully launched popular game-inspired web series in the past, and Street Fighter is about as iconic as they come. We couldn’t be more excited about working with the incredible production team behind the series and the folks over at Capcom to launch not only a compelling and action-packed series in its own right, but also one that stays true to the Street Fighter lore.” DeBevoise continued, “After the success of Mortal Kombat: Legacy 2, we will once again provide all of the episodes on the day of launch to our fans to ensure they get exactly what they want—the entire series from start to finish!”

  3. Less is more in a teaser trailer-not spectacular enough for the length of the trailer. Still excited because I know they can do better!
