While we wait for the marketing campaign for Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist to begin in earnest, here's a new still featuring Mr. Master's, played by Mark Killeen (Game of Thrones) and Gouken played by Akira Koieyama (Rush, 47 Ronin). Mr. Masters is meeting Gouken's pupil, Ryu while his son Ken waits in the car. Expect a full marketing blitz for Assassin's Fist to kickoff sometime in January.

Live-Action STREET FIGHTER Crowd Funded Campaign Announced

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.

I could barley see the article between Ford f150 and Kick Ass 2 promos and whatever you've got going on here.

^I'm about to. It has been getting pretty ridiculous.
There's a pop-up that blocks most of the page every time I go to a link.

Hell yes Street Fighter deserves this. I used to love watching my friend cry when i beat him in street fighter. He kicked me out of his house everytime.

@0megaDaGod, this is a response to those two songs you posted on TASM 2 article. Well the first song you posted sucked in both rap and beat. I'll check the song out in my car though, because I do have a good sound system with a big ass base box. The other song was better, because the beat was good but the rap sucked.

@intruder, haha

Like that they adding Kens Father in the story and Mark Killeen should do great but I hope kid ryu and Ken are actual martial artist and they show case this. Kid Ryu is looking a bit chubby.

@0megaDaGod, I don't like the way he raps. Someone like Tech N9ne would own that song.

I think the important thing is...is this part the MCU? Marvel vs Capcom: The Movie!

@Omega, I never heard of Clipse, but I did just listen to two of his songs and he's pretty good.

This is gonna be awesome. These guys respect the material so you know it's gonna be a true adaptation.
