Capcom, in association with Honda, has debuted the full trailer for it’s upcoming web-series, Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist, based on the world-renowned fighting game franchise. The series, similar to Warner Bros.’ Mortal Kombat Legacy, another original web series, will debut and broadcast exclusively via Machinima towards the end of the month.
Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist follows the origins of fan favorites & comrades/ friendly rivals Ken and Ryu, as they train in the Ansatsuken style of Martial Arts up in the mountains of Japan under the tutelage of Master Gouken. As their martial arts training intensifies, Gouken is forced to revisit dark secrets from a painful past that resulted in the tragic “loss” of his training partner & brother, Goki. Will history repeat itself? Fans of the animated film Street Fighter Alpha: Generations will find multiple story similarities between the two projects, so in case you absolutely can’t wait to find out what happens, there it is… you’re welcome.
Featuring the same production team behind the incredibly popular web short Street Fighter: Legacy, all 13 episodes of Street Fighter:Assassin’s Fist will debut via Machinima’s youtube channel on May 23rd.
