Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist, the live-action direct-to-web Street Fighter series that will follow the origins of Ken and Ryu, has begun filming, it was announced at Comic-Con this afternoon.


As you may recall, earlier in the year, the producers of the Street Fighter Legacy web film launched a crowdfunding campaign to fund the creation of Assassin’s Fist. Later in the year, however, they cancelled the Kickstarter, announcing that they had found a financial backer that was willing to help them get started on production.


Casting details for Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist can be found here.

    Hope this is as good as the Mortal Kombat web series.

  • The short this group did was pretty cool, I’ll check out the first episode

    the MK web series was phenomenal

  • Soma

    If this was from the same guys that brought us Street Fighter: The Later Years, I would be so much more interested.

  • whatinthewolrd

    Obviously the soul purpose of this is to generate epic gifs.

  • Altin

    I hope that they will add a scene with Sagat eating Cornflakes.

  • dragoon_slayer12

    This is gonna be sick

  • Solomon_Kano

    Oh, how I’ve waited.

    Ansah delivered with Legacy, so I expect this to be just as good, if not better.

  • TrannyMagic

    Ken’s pretty hot.

  • That image does not inspire confidence

    • Mecha_the_Hedgehog

      Someone correct me if I’m wrong but I don’t think that’s that the actor from the show. Its a screen shot of the fan movie they did that got them this gig.

  • That Ken looks legit!

  • Jesse Torres

    Ok,He actually looks like ken.

  • KingGunblader

    Ken looks like Zac Efron… Oh well, and least it’s beefy Efron and not Disney Efron.

    • JustThisOne

      First thing I thought. It’s not him though. I just glanced through the kickstarter for a bit, and they’ve got some pretty good people casted, actually…

      (For one, they’ve actually casted Asians for the Asian characters. *cough cough Dragonball Z whyyyy cough wheeze*)

      • Mecha_the_Hedgehog

        Dragonball’s casting was the least problem it had it did have actually Asian actors. Now you want to get into race fuck ups The last Airbender and the new Bay produced Ninja Turtles would like to say hello.

        As for Street Fighter Assassin Fist from what I heard its going to be awesome lets face it this franchise needs for someone to wash the stink off of it from the last two live action productions. That chun-li movie oh man that was painful.

  • Juan Andrés Valencia

    No Chris Klein?

  • YoshEE

    Well from the past movie of their. It better be good

  • Masa

    will watch for sure but only if the characters nationalities are correct.

  • mike dickson

    im not that much of a fan of live action movies but i hope this one becomes successful i don’t want a repeat of dragon ball evolution that movie assassinated my childhood

  • xxx128

    They should have morgan freeman as sagat explaining the whole story before the film starts for the mentally challenged.

  • Richard N

    I’m still sad Thousand Pounds didn’t get this gig, but I’m looking forward to this nonetheless. Hopefully we’ll get some decent character development from Ryu besides getting a hard on for fighting and getting stronger.
