Since the boys and girls behind “Mortal Kombat: Legacy” scored a hit with their popular web series, it’s not altogether surprising that another fighting game with its own wonky cinematic history is looking to reboot things with a show of its own. Enter “Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist,” a series that should arrive online later this year. To get everyone excited about the project, a new poster was recently released online.
As a fan of the “Street Fighter” games — ask my fight stick how much I love the titles — I’m definitely a little curious about this one. As long as it’s stronger than Jean-Claude Van Damme’s big-screen adaptation, then I’ll probably walk away a happy boy. Expectations are under control, though it’s hard not to get excited about the project.
Anyway, here’s the synopsis:
Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist” will explore the early days of Ryu and Ken and tell the story of their tutelage under Gouken, who must decide whether to pass down all the secrets of the Asatsuken (Assassin’s Fist) fighting style after experiencing first hand the ill-effects that befall his younger brother, Akuma. Gouken struggles with whether his two young trainees Ken and Ryu will split along the path of light and darkness just as he and Akuma did as they learned from their master, Goutetsu (Togo Igawa).
“Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist” stars Mike Moh as Ryu and Christian Howard as Ken. Have a look at the poster below while you’re waiting for a release date.
