UPDATE – The announcement video shown at SDCC from the Street Fighter: Legacy crew has been added below.
Some of you may remember Street Fighter: Legacy, the short film created by Joey Ansah that showcased a short, well-choreographed fight between the series iconic rivals, Ryu and Ken. The project became quite popular when it was released, and Ansah expressed a desire to produce more Street Fighter related films if given the chance.
Well, it appears Capcom has given him that chance.
Today, news from San Diego’s Comic-Con surfaced that Yoshinori Ono announced Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist, a live action series produced by Ansah and his crew. This new project will explore the shared history between Ryu, Ken, Akuma, and Gouken, as well as the Ansatsuken fighting style.
Please note that the featured image and the one at the top of the article are taken from Legacy, not this new project.
