Mike Moh as Ryu in Street Fighter Assassin's Fist

I used to play “Street Fighter” on the arcades way, way back when there were still arcades. Not so much these days, what with the PS10s and X-Box-1000s and such that you kids are all on. Apparently writer/director Joey Ansah was one of those kids who lined up to put in his quarters to battle some fool on a “Street Fighter” arcade game after school, because why else would he dedicate so much time and effort to making this movie? I’m honestly not sure if kids these days even remember “Street Fighter.”

Anyways. Check out the latest teaser trailer for the upcoming TV series/DVD movie/online series, which focuses on Ryu. They sure have the costume down, that’s fer sho.

Assassin’s Fist is the translation of ‘Ansatsuken’ the arcane Japanese lethal Martial Arts style of which Gouken, Gouki/Akuma Ryu and Ken are all exponents.

Through the coming of age story of Ryu & Ken, we are shown the back story of some of the game’s most iconic characters, and over the course of the series we will see how the past, present, and future of all of those characters are intertwined, as the battle to become Ansatsuken Master threatens to tear apart another generation of brothers.

Starring Mike Moh as Ryu, Howard as Ken Masters and writer/director Joey Ansah as Akuma.

“Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist” will debut on Machinima’s Youtube channel in May 2014, before hitting TV, On-demand and DVD/Blu-ray afterward.

    This is going to be so good. I really hope it does well so I can get Scott Adkins as Guile!!! Marko Zaror should play Sagat. And Gary Anthony Daniels should play Bison.

    that gotta be the lamest Hadouken EVER !!! fix that. After inner ki burn , it should sucks up all the outer ki (Wind, heat, light, atom, universe ki), inner and outer ki become one !!! that animation is not enough to represent that !!! and that hadouken scream….sigh…ryu…should be much more manly than that.

      Keeping in mind we’re watching a Ryu still in training and learning how to do the Hadoken properly. It’s set pre Alpha and pre SF1. I’d expect it to improve over time. This is meant to be a young Ryu in his late teens/early 20s. If the series is successful, there’s more time to develop into the SFII Ryu and onwards.

    This is the closest, truest, live action representation of the Street Fighter series to date, and still there always has to be someone bitching about trivial shit.

      My thoughts exactly. This looks to be what fans have wanted for a long time. The source material taken seriously. and with care, and people still need to find something to complain about.
