CCI: Capcom’s Street Fighter Kicking Its Way to Television

Street Fighter fans rejoice! The team that brought you the wildly popular fan film Street Fighter: Legacy (below) has been tapped to create an official live-action series focusing on Ken and Ryu’s early days. Called Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist, the show will be written by Joey Ansah and Christian Howard, who created the Legacy video that proved to many that the Capcom game had a live-action future beyond the 1994 Jean-Claude Van Damme movie.

“Our priority is to stay true to the appearance, fighting techniques and canon of the Street Fighter game,” Howard said. “At the same time we’ve managed to make this an emotion and character driven story, which will surprise viewers who might just be expecting a super faithful fight fest!”

The series will be distributed by Content Media Corporation.

    I’d be shocked if this makes it’s past episode 4 if they actually go through with it.

     TV show would actually make more sense than a movie.  Make it something like Heroes that follows the individual characters around as they pursue their individual goals.

    I’m for it and against it at the same time. I think fighting games would
    make better tv shows as you get more time to develop the side
    characters than in a movie. But I’m not into street fighter enough to
    really justify sitting down week in and out to see it.

    If it were tekken or KoF, I’d be game.

    But I’m optimistic because of Joey ansah who did the web-series and the
    amount of love and respect he has for the series is infectious and
    inspiring.

    The only other problem i would have is how interesting they keep the
    training period because i believe we dont really need to see that much. If it were a film, it be flashback territory.

    I prefer the College Humor “Later Years”

    I think it would have a better chance as a web show than on actual television.

    If this show is as (unintentionally?) hilarious as the 1994 Van Damme movie then I will happily watch it.
