With Mortal Kombat already having a web series from Warner Bros and Machinima (Mortal Kombat Legacy), it’s about time Street Fighter has one of its own. As much as I enjoyed Jean-Claude Van Damme in Street Fighter (let’s not even talk about that Chun Li movie), I’m really looking forward to a well-produced Street Fighter live-action series starring the two guys that started it all, Ryu and Ken.

Now Machinima has released a full trailer for Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist, and it has also announced that the series will premiere on May 23, 2014.

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

The series was created by Joey Ansah (The Bourne Ultimatum, Snow White and the Huntsman). Ansah also co-wrote the script with Christian Howard and stars as Akuma. Howard reprises as Ken from the original fan film. Also starring are Mike Moh as Ryu, Togo Igawa (47 Ronin, Memoirs of a Geisha, The Last Samurai) as Gōtetsu, Akira Koieyama as Gōken, Gaku Space as Gōki, Mark Killeen (300: Rise of an Empire, The Dark Knight Rises) as Mr. Masters, and Hal Yamanouchi as Senzo.

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.
