'Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist' series announced by 'Street Fighter: Legacy' short film creators

Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist, an episodic follow-up to the 2010 Street Fighter fan film, Street Fighter: Legacy, is in development for a 2013 release, creator Joey Ansah and actor Christian Howard announced today at San Diego Comic-Con.

The full-length series will take place in Japan, and will delve into the origins of Ryu, Ken, and their master, Gouken. The "Assassin's Fist" subtitle comes from "Ansatsuken," the Japanese name for the fighting style that Gouken taught to Ryu and Ken.

Capcom is partnering with Ansah's production company, Assassin's Fist Limited, and producer Jacqueline Quella, to bring the project to fruition. They were unable to appear at Comic-Con themselves, but recorded a video that aired during Capcom's panel for the 25th anniversary of the Street Fighter franchise. Street Fighter producer Yoshinori Ono came out in a Blanka costume, complete with a foam head of spiked orange hair, to introduce their video.

The series has been in the works for over two years — in May 2010, shortly after the release of Legacy, Ansah expressed a desire to do a series and suggested that each episode would be released on Xbox Live.

You can follow the development process on the project's website and Facebook page. If you haven't yet watched Street FIghter: Legacy, check it out below.
