Street Fighter: World Warrior
When Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist came out last May, many hailed the web series as the first live-action adaptation that got the popular franchise right. Now, the team behind that series is looking to see if lightning can strike twice with the announcement that a sequel series is currently being developed.
Assassin’s Fist told the story of Ryu and Ken as they trained in the ways of Ansatsuken and how their path paralleled that of their master Gouken and his brother Gouki (who would later become known as Akuma). World Warrior looks to continue that story by introducing other popular street fighters like M. Bison, Guile, Chun-Li, and Sagat.
Street Fighter: World Warrior will premiere sometime in late 2015 or early 2016, so stay tuned for more details.
Additionally, director Joy Ansah announced that they will be releasing Blu-ray and DVD copies of Assassin’s Fist on October 28, complete with a behind the scenes look at the production, commentary, and more.
