And series originals Mike Moh (Empire) and Christian Howard (The World’s End), who will reprise their roles as ‘Ryu’ and ‘Ken’. Set a decade after the events in Assassin’s Fist, Resurrection features the iconic Street Fighter character Charlie Nash, played by Alain Moussi (Suicide Squad, X-Men: Days of Future Past, Pacific Rim), who was revealed at the Capcom Cup, the finale of the 2015 Capcom Pro Tour fighting game tournament series.
