Ken And Ryu Teased From STREET FIGHTER: ASSASSIN'S FIST Production
As season 2 of Mortal Kombat: Legacy streams onward, we turn our attention to another fighting video game web series, Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist. Check out this tease of Ken and Ryu.
Mortal Kombat: Legacy director Kevin Tancharoen recently revealed via twitter that he's moving on from Mortal Kombat, leaving many to wonder what will happen with the web series and the upcoming movie. But while the future of that franchise is mired in uncertainty, Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist looks ready to take advantage. It's thought that the web series will debut sometime in early 2014 and the productions teases the Assassin's Fist camp have doled out during filming have more than a few thinking something phenomenal could emerge.
The story in Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist centers on the master of Ken and Ryu, Gouken, who himself trained under ‘Asatsuken (Assassin's Fist)' grandmaster Goutetsu. Also training under Goutetsu was the legendary Street Fighter villain, Akuma, who is Gouken's brother. In the web series Gouken reflects on how the Asatsuken sent he and his brother down conflicting paths of 'Light' and 'Dark' and whether he should pass along all of its secrets to Ken and Ryu. Will the same split that befell Gouken and Akuma occur with Ken and Ryu?
In addition to portraying Gōki/Akuma, Joey Ansah (The Bourne Ultimatum) served as director and co-wrote the script with Ken actor Christian Howard. Togo Igawa (Memoirs of a Geisha, The Last Samurai) will portray grandmaster Goutetsu. Mike Moh (Kamen Rider: Dragon Knight) plays Ryu. Hal Yamanouchi (The Wolverine) will portray Senzo. Akira Koieyama (Rush, 47 Ronin) plays Gouken. Mark Killeen (Game of Thrones) plays Ken's father.
Like Mortal Kombat: Legacy, if the web series proves successful, expect a feature film to follow.
