The Street Fighter franchise is still popular after all of these years. It’s no surprise that we’ve seen adapted onto the big screen. There was the original Street Fighter movie that starred Jean-Claude Van Damme, then there was also a movie that was based on Chun-Li’s character that featured Kristin Kreuk.
There was also a live-action web series called Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist. Well, get ready for more live action Street Fighter. It looks like we will be getting a new TV series as well.
The series is apparently based on the World Warrior story-arc which was introduced in Street Fighter II: The World Warrior. It focuses on Ryu, Ken, Guile and Chun-Li who are trying to take down M. Bison. Yoshinori Ono, Capcom Executive Producer for Street Fighter says, “After a long search, guided by the team behind Assassin’s Fist, we are delighted to be partnering with a company with the outstanding TV experience of Mark Gordon and eOne. They have the credentials to help us launch a faithful adaptation of Street Fighter as a major TV series.”
We don’t know who will be starring in the upcoming series or when it is expected to be aired, but we should hear more soon.
