A few weeks after the official character teaser aired for actor Mike Moh's role as Ryu for the upcoming webseries, Street Fighter: Assassins Fist, we now have a second promo in the same format for actor and series co-writer Christian Howard's role as Ken, which you can check out below. Co-written and directed by Joey Ansah, the series is poised to be the most comprehensive cinematic take on the original tournament fighting game franchise from Capcom, having come a really long way since its 2010 heydays as a three-minute shortfilm. And with a healthy handful of positive reviews from fansites devoted to the original game, the reasons to endorse this project are MORE than plenty.
The most successful and most loved fighting video game of all time, Street Fighter', is finally being given the epic, and faithful treatment it deserves.
Street Fighter: Assassins Fist takes us back to the formative years of the iconic characters, Ryu and Ken, as they live a traditional warriors life in the secluded, mountain wilderness of Japan.
Training under their master, Goken, the boys are the last practitioners of the ancient fighting style known as Ansatsuken (Assassin's Fist). Originally developed as a killing art, masters of this style are able to manipulate their Chi/Ki energy into devastating special techniques of potentially fatal power.
As Ryu and Ken learn about the mysterious past of their Master Goken and the tragic and dark legacy of the Ansatsuken style will the two best friends become bitter rivals as their training intensifies and reaches a climax?
