Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist Debuts Online Today


Machinima's Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist webseries, featuring the origins of Ken and Ryu, has just debuted online. You can see it embedded below. The project follows on the heels of recent Machinima successes like BenDavid Grabinski's Enormous and S.H.I.E.L.D. Sucks at Everything. Through the coming of age story of Ken & Ryu, we are shown the backstory of some of the game's most iconic characters, and over the course of the series we will see how the past, present, and future of all of those characters are intertwined, as the battle to become Ansatsuken Master threatens to tear apart another generation of brothers. Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist, which is distributed by Content Media and presented by the all-new 2015 Honda Fit, is the brainchild of Joey Ansah (The Bourne Ultimatum, Snow White and the Huntsman). Ansah, who also stars in the series (Akuma), wrote the script with Christian Howard, who reprises his role as Ken Masters from the original fan film. The series also stars Mike Moh as Ryu, Togo Igawa (47 RoninMemoirs of a Geisha, The Last Samurai) as Gōtetsu, Akira Koieyama as Gōken, Gaku Space as Gōki, Mark Killeen (300: Rise of an EmpireThe Dark Knight Rises) as Mr. Masters, and Hal Yamanouchi (The Wolverine, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou) as Senzo. Series Producer is Jacqueline Quella (Romanzo Criminale, Don't Tell). The series is produced by Assassin's Fist Limited (a UK based company) in association with Lonely Rock Productions, Gloucester Place Films, Capcom U.S.A., Inc. and Evropa Film.
