Capcom working with die-hard fans to create a live-action Street Fighter series
We’ve got some surprising Street Fighter news coming out of the Street Fighter 25th Anniversary Panel at Comic Com. No, it’s not Street Fighter V but it’s definitely something you wouldn’t have seen coming.
The talented fans behind the now legendary short-film Street Fighter: Legacy have announced that they are teaming up with Capcom to produce a live-action Street Fighter series.
Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist will serve as a prequel to the games and will revolve around Ryu and Ken, as they learn the art of the 'Ansatsuken' (Assassin's Fist) under the tutelage of their master, Gouken, while also uncovering the dark past of how the fighting style was created.
The cast has yet to be named and whether the series will wind up on TV or the Internet (my money is on the Internet) is still unknown, but we do know it will air sometime in 2013 and Akuma will be the main antagonist.
In case you need a reminder of how awesome the original short was, here it is:
Psst. If you thought that was cool, you should also check out Eddie Lebron's: Chun-Li Vs Cammy here on ScrewAttack.
What do you think g1s? Do you think Capcom can finally pull off a solid live-action Street Fighter adaptation? Personally, I think this team definitely has the creative drive to make it happen, whether or not they'll be given the proper time or budget remains to be seen. But I choose to remain hopeful.
I know what you mean man, I've always felt that if they made a street fighter adaptation they would need to nail the fighting first the lore behind sf is so deep and to the point that the visual would be more important
It's a preference thing. I'm more about the message being conveyed and the story being told through the action and camerawork than anything else.
Besides, as an amateur filmmaker, I think this was just had horrible direction overall. It wasn't a particularly captivating video and, in a single word, it was bland.
I feel the complete opposite, i much prefer this to all that shaky cam in the sfxt film. I like old school fight scenes were you can tell whats going on actually. Plus in this they were faithful to the actual styles of ken and ryu down to the stances and normals vs just martial arts with shoryus peppered in
no worries man lol i play it constantly
Correction: CvS2* :P
That was a mistype on my part. I wrote that at like 2 am lol. I wasn't aware ken had a roll in Third Strike since I haven't played that game in forever XD
its cvs2 mannnnnnnnnnnnnn lol and he has the roll in 3rd strike [takes of street fighter nerd glasses]
Awesome, loved Legacy can't wait.
I second this
This must be SVC2 because of that roll that Ken did lol
This was actually a really awful film, especially by comparison to the Street Fighter X Tekken fan film.
Please let this be good god, PLEASE LET IT BE GOOD!
Now they just need to work with the guy who made the live action Mega Man film.
YES YES YES.
Finally Capcom has done something right (In recent years)
