'Street Fighter: World Warrior' live-action series in development

Michael McWhertor is a journalist with more than 17 years of experience covering video games, technology, movies, TV, and entertainment.

Live-action series Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist is getting a sequel, the production team announced at San Diego Comic-Con today. The follow up, Street Fighter: World Warrior, will introduce the series' main antagonist, the criminal organization Shadaloo led by M. Bison.

While Assassin's Fist focused mainly on Street Fighter mainstays Ken, Ryu and their master Gouken, World Warrior will introduce characters like Guile, Chun-li and Sagat. Director Joey Ansah and the rest of the series' creators will return for the sequel series.

Street Fighter: World Warrior is scheduled to arrive in late 2015 or early 2016.

Ansah also announced that Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist, which was originally broadcast online, will be released on DVD and Blu-ray later this year. The physical release will feature a range of behind the scenes featurettes, director's commentary, four deleted scenes — one of which touches on the history of Dan Hibiki — and a blooper reel.

Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist comes to DVD, Blu-ray, on-demand and downloadable formats on Oct. 28 in the U.S., U.K., Australia and New Zealand. A Japanese release is scheduled for November.
