In the wake of all the fervor with the latest teaser for the new webseries, Street Fighter: Resurrection, filmmaker Joey Ansah put to ease some of the concerns that have been drawn. The new series was announced over the weekend at Capcom Cup 2015 followed by Machinima's subsequent release of the teaser online depicting actor and rising action star Alain Moussi in the role of the undead former soldier, Charlie Nash, inspired by Capcom's hit game franchise.

The new series comes well over a year after the hugely deserved approval of Ansah's empassioned and epic take on the franchise last year with Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist. Actors Mike Moh and Christian Howard portrayed iconic characters Ryu and Ken as they journeyed into the origins of the very deadly martial art handed down to them by their sensei, Gouken, played by Koieyama Akira, and with the two ready to join the next round opposite Moussi, Ansah is hard at work mapping things out between now and 2016, with specific regard to the upcoming release of the new game, Street Fighter V in Feburary.

That said, Street Fighter: Resurrection is looking to service fans a meaty cinematic tie-in to the game ahead of what awaits for Street Fighter: World Warrior. Machinima is premiering the new series on Verizon's go90 mobile platform this coming March following a deal announced back in September as one of several new shows now in development.

Check out Anash's official statement below along with a new image of Moussi in costume.

Dear SFAF fans. Street Fighter: Resurrection is a highly ambitious, action packed, live-action mini series which serves as a narrative prologue to the events of SFV. With the new game coming out and interest from both Machinima and Capcom for me to make a tie in, I couldn't pass up such an exciting prospect to leap forward a decade after the events of Assassin's Fist and write and direct a very contemporary part of the SF mythos. Featuring old faithful characters and brand new ones. The same level of detail and authenticity has gone into SFR as it has SFAF. I want to also address the subject of STREET FIGHTER: WORLD WARRIOR. Your passion and demand for seeing the direct narrative follow up to SFAF is understandable and heart warming. I spent most of this year completing detailed story development and structure for World Warrior. To pull together a production of that huge scale takes time. So rest assured SFWW is still coming! and to fill the gap until it is ready, you have SFR to look forward to. Trust me it will Shun Goku Satsu your senses. ~ Joey Ansah
