'STREET FIGHTER: ASSASSIN'S FIST' Reveals First Look At Goutetsu And Senzo
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 love the concept but I hate the wig. Fan ser wigs are just terrible.
Demongod20 - 1/1/2014, 6:18 AM
@ MarVell

I can't believe they cast Johnny Cage as Guile in that old Street Fighter movie.
kjra92 - 1/1/2014, 6:21 AM
@Ineedrevelation In SF1 and SF-Alpha games, Ryu's headband is white.
SunfireUrA55 - 1/1/2014, 6:41 AM
holy moly Mike Moh's bulked up so much.
Finally we have a true fan who can bring this to life in a more accurate way than the dumb asses in....shall we say Hollywood??? Thank you!!
Jer3miah - 1/1/2014, 6:43 AM
Wow. That looks incredible. Hollywood should take some notes. This is how you make a movie poster.
Dinotron - 1/1/2014, 7:32 AM
Wow! May I say this is near perfect, if not perfect, adaptation of these characters brought to life
ALmight - 1/1/2014, 7:41 AM

TheBatman777 - 1/1/2014, 8:42 AM
I never really was a fan of the long hair ken and this doesn't help at all LMAO. I think it passes more in a video game then it does in real life IMO
konoyaro - 1/1/2014, 8:46 AM
BAD ASS!!
kjra92 - 1/1/2014, 9:05 AM
@COREYxYEROC Early this year (Probably Feb or March). :)
thewolfx - 1/1/2014, 10:30 AM

AGoodHonestMan - 1/1/2014, 11:43 AM
Damn! This looks good!
BenjiWest - 1/1/2014, 12:48 PM

DrunkenPirateNukem - 1/1/2014, 1:54 PM
where is jean claude Van-Damme??? [frick] this...
SuperCat - 1/1/2014, 3:09 PM
@ Trudy

Looks like it got deleted :(
Minghagz - 1/1/2014, 5:06 PM
I have hopes for this.

By the way... Ryu started out with a white head band and was later given the red head band from Ken (as you can see tied to Ken's hair in the poster) and seeing as how this story seems to be going off of the Alpha story then its accurate that he currently has the white head band.
