You wanted a Season 2?? Well brace yourselves as 'Street Fighter: World Warrior' is officially beginning development!


 


That is the headline on 'Street Fighter's Assassin's Fist' facebook page to announce the great news of having been received the thumbs up from Capcom to further develop the stories of what is regarding by many as the best video game fighting series.







Producer, Jacqueline Quella talked about the process that will be taken to make the sequel, as the succes of SF: Assasin's Fist proved to be a succes and be a hit with fans.

"We demonstrated with 'Assasin's Fist' that an authentic, live-action version of videogames, with a compelling and dramatic storylin, can be made,".. "We'll be taking the same approach with the new series."





Joey Ansah further helped explain the world that will be introduced in the new series and the characters that will populate it and have an impact on the path of it's characters.

 

"The scale of 'World Warrior' is a much larger, picking up where 'Assassin's Fist' left off as we follow Ryu and Ken on their 'Musha Shugyo' (warrior's pilgrimage',"...


 

 


"The Shadaloo criminal cartel will be introduced, led by the extremely dangerous M.Bison, which will naturally lead into the World Warrior Tournament"

 

 

 

 




Ansah had previously stated that if 'Assassin's Fist' were to be successful he would like to introduce Guile. Given that Shadaloo is to play a big part on the telling of the story, expect him to have a pretty big role as he is a highly decorated officer in the armed forces. Also, it is safe to assume that Chun-Li, who is described as an InterPol officer will be introduced and also play a major secondary role.

Joey Ansah has previously stated he would like to have Scott Adkins (Yuri Boika [Undisputed II) for the role of Guile and Adkins has also expressed his interest to join the project in the future.


Having Adkins taking part in the project would be welcomed as he has a pretty strong fan following and his undeniable martial arts skills would compliment and more than keep pace with Christian Howard and Mike Moh who also are extremely talented martial artists themselves.







If you still haven't had the chance to catch the series that made this sequel possible than check it below.





Assasin's Fist will be available on Blu-Ray, DVD, VOD, and on Download-to-own platforms in the third quarter of this year, it will be distributed by Content Media Corp. It will come with special unreleased footage.

HELL YEAH! Loved the first one. Can't wait to see the other characters.

Surprisingly, they nailed Ken's character to the wall. One of the best casting ever in my opinion. Ryu not so much. The vibe wasn't there like the Ken's character.

Best depiction of Akuma ever!

@huckfinnisher that needs to come back out for current gen systems
DevarikaWoulf - 7/26/2014, 5:23 AM
One thing I wished they do is fix the stupid translation of M. Bison's, Balrog's, and Vega's names. That always bothers me every time I play. M. Bison's name is Vega. VEGA!
XF14 - 7/26/2014, 9:15 AM
Epicness. I loved the webseries, cant wait to see what they do with a a bigger budget!
huckfinnisher - 7/26/2014, 9:16 AM

I used to kill with Jenny the Bat and that Mole kid.

@DevarikaWoulf

Or is M.Bison's name Balrog?
huckfinnisher - 7/26/2014, 11:08 AM
Bakuryu the mole! Should make a damn movie
DevarikaWoulf - 7/26/2014, 3:39 PM
@breakUbatman

In America, yeah.

In Japan:

Balrog = M. Bison
Vega = Balrog
M. Bison = Vega
