The long awaited series premiere Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist, from Joey Ansah (Akuma), and Christian Howard (Ken) is finally here. Being a long time fan of the Street Fighter video game series, Ansah set out to make a live-action adaptation of the video game classic that would satisfy not only him, but fans of the series as well. To begin his quest, Ansah teamed up with Christian Howard, Owen Trevor, and Jacqueline Quella to bring to life his vision of what a live-action adaptiation of Street Fighter should be and Street Fighter: Legacy was born. 
With Capcom's blessing Street Fighter: Legacy (a trailer type short) was released to the public on May 6 of 2010. With it's release Ansah's short-film received critical and fan praise alike. 
In 2012 at the San Diego Comic Con International, Capcom announced that it had granted the rights to Assassin's Fist Limited to produce a live-action series adaptation of the Street Fighter video game franchise.
Now, with Ansah's and Howards directorial/writing talents they bring you, Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist, a series that is sure to please it's viewers whether you are a fan of the video games or not. 

Ryu and Ken live the traditional warrior's life in secluded Japan. The boys are, unknowingly, the last practitioners of the ancient fighting style known as 'Asatsuken' (Assassin's Fist). The series follows them as they learn about the mysterious past of their Master, Gouken, and the tragic and dark legacy of the Ansatsuken Style. Can their destiny be changed... or will history repeat itself?





















 

The series will be released in four formats altogether. Machinima.com will first release it as a 12-part web-series at 11-12 minutes per episode. The 12 episodes will then be combined into 6 episodes of 21-22 minutes each for a TV mini-series on a currently undisclosed network. Afterwards, it will be released as an edited 105-minute TV Movie for syndicated television, and finally as teh full 2+ hour uncut feature film as it was originally shot for release on DVD/Blu-Ray. The series will first be released via Machinima.com on May 23, 2014, followed by release on other formats at later dates.

Arrow96 - 5/23/2014, 1:22 PM
It's really fun. The acting is really bad at parts though, and is mediocre at best. The fighting is spectacular and the overall show is immersive. I'm stuck watching it now. It's a really great time, but don't expect incredible acting.

SunfireUrA55 - 5/23/2014, 3:28 PM
Wow!!! OUSTANDING JOB guys!! Hope there'll be more episodes. Imagine Bison or Ryu vs. Sagat!

If the whole thing was in Japanese, it wouldve been wonderful. The master speaking english is pretty bad, he shouldve stuck to Japanese and of course Ken and Ryu are nothing special acting wise, but I still prefer this to any other Street Fighter film to date. Gorgeous landscapes, great Japanese culture and dialogue, great character driven story. Hope this becomes a well-funded franchise for the future, would love to see this thrive and continue.

Watched all 13 episodes... The show was brilliant. Like others have said some bits in this has choppy acting, not so much from the main actors but from the unknown characters. Seriously though this is a million times better then the last 2 live action films we got, and is up there in greatness with the anime film. Hoping for a season 2 to set up the fighters for a tournament film, with a combination of characters from SF1, Alpha, and SF2. Can't wait for the Blu-Ray release of this in full uncut film form. Gonna be well worth the money!

Also really hoping in future seasons... Dan Hibiki makes an onscreen appearance! :D
batmanvsuperman - 5/23/2014, 3:56 PM
Looks awesome
jmartinez986 - 5/23/2014, 3:59 PM
@ashleyjwilliams

dont hesitate to share bud, Joey Ansah said not to long ago that they would like to keep the series going and he was going to try to cast Scott Adkins (Undisputed 2 & 3) to portray Guile. Of course it all depends on the success of this.
dio - 5/23/2014, 5:01 PM
lol Wookie you always have the funniest pics. This looked good since it was a minisode. HELL YES!
NeoBaggins - 5/23/2014, 5:26 PM
Down+Fierce-Kick

Loved that move. So awkward they could see it coming and still not block it. Nice nod.
mgeoff88 - 5/23/2014, 6:02 PM
Awesome! I've been looking forward to this.
dio - 5/23/2014, 6:06 PM
Pretty good so far Mgeoff
frontierpsychiatrist - 5/23/2014, 6:42 PM

wookiefit76 - 5/23/2014, 6:43 PM
thanks dio
CaptainN2 - 5/23/2014, 9:17 PM
Loving this show! Getting the blu ray! Give us season 2!!!
Inhuman - 5/23/2014, 9:21 PM
This series was awesome! The best live action Street Fighter ever created. Im really glad they featured and spoke about Ryu and Ken and there related characters (Gen, Dan, Akuma, etc). I hope season 2 has Guile and Chun-Li and they mention Charlie, Chun-Lis father, Cammy, and Bison and other related characters specific to Guile and Chun-Li. Season 3 should be the tournament
Dickel - 5/24/2014, 12:59 AM
Really, really impressed! Just finished watching it and it was so much better than I would have imagined it to be.
(The video game bit was a little out of place, but I thought it was a humorous addition and an obvious nod to where the characters came from).
mizeatwizad52 - 5/24/2014, 1:46 AM
Absolutely amazing what can happen when the source material is respected. Too bad Hollywood rarely has the balls to do that. This is the Street Fighter movie that we as Fans deserved, not the 2 piles of dung Hollywood put out!
HeadPool420 - 5/24/2014, 9:35 AM
My only complaint is that Guile didn't show up during the part where they go to the bar and fight club the soldiers.
lucio7lopez - 5/24/2014, 4:52 PM
This is awesome!!!!
Whippet - 5/25/2014, 1:40 AM
Can't stop watching this. A perfect representation of a land mark game.

How can we make sure it's success moves to more of the same ????
Luminus - 5/25/2014, 2:38 AM
Perfect!

@HeadPool420: I thought Guile was going to show up there, but this is pre-Alpha.
Luminus - 5/25/2014, 2:40 AM
@Inhuman: When was Dan mentioned? I didn't catch that.
OstrichBane - 5/25/2014, 6:54 AM
The power of the Satsui No Hado is strong with this one.
AshleyJWilliams - 5/27/2014, 1:08 PM
@Luminus: In episode 03 at like 2:34 or sometime around there!
