Capcom and Assassin’s Fist Limited have announced an agreement for a live-action Street Fighter series.
Called “Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist,” the series will show Ryu and Ken in their early years. It will follow them as they find out about Gouken’s past and the history of their fighting style.
It is being developed by the team that made the fan move “Street Fighter: Legacy.”
“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.”
The series looks to release in 2013 worldwide.
