Ken Gets His Own Trailer for Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist

Christian Howard as Ken in Street Fighter Assassin's Fist

Joey Ansah’s upcoming “Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist” is all about how Ken and Ryu found their funky uniforms and how someone convinced them to keep wearing them. Oh wait, no, it’s not? Huh.

Anyways, since we previously saw a Ryu-centric trailer for “Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist,” I guess it’s only fair that we know get Ken’s take. You get the feeling the Japanese folks who created the game were patterning Ken after the Ken doll (of Barbie fame)? I could be wrong, of course.

A multi-layered series that looks back to the formative years of Ryu and Ken as they live a traditional warrior’s life in secluded Japan. The boys are, unknowingly, the last practitioners of the ancient fighting style known as “Ansatsuken” (Assassin’s Fist). The series follows them as they learn about the mysterious past of their master, Goken, and the tragic, dark legacy of the Ansatsuken style. Can their destiny be changed, or will history repeat itself?

Starring Togo Igawa, Mike Moh, Joey Ansah, Hal Yamanouchi, Christian Howard, Akira Koieyama, Gaku Space, and Hyunri Hyunri.

“Assassin’s Fist” debuts online on the Machinima youtube channel in May 2014, before hitting TV, On-demand and DVD/Blu-ray afterward.
