Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist Trailers: Ken and Ryu’s Training
There’s no Jean-Claude Van Damme as Guile in these accurate and amazing trailers for the upcoming fan film, Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist.
Watch Joey Ansah and Christian Howard’s amazing take on the upbringings of Ryu and Ken as they study in the martial arts style of Ansatsuken, which translates to ‘Assassin’s Fist.’ This gorgeous series will depict the likes of Ryu, Ken, Gouken and Akuma as they all resolve with their own interpretations of the Assassin’s Fist style and try to define what the martial art each means to them.
The series will show some of these characters’ origins, similar to Street Fighter Alpha (see Ryu with the white headband and Ken with long hair?), while also depicting them from a more present, traditional perspective (Ryu with the red headband). Based on how these trailers focus on Ryu and Ken, Assassin’s Fist is staying much more faithful to Capcom’s source material than the 1994 film ever did. The Assassin’s Fist series is also a sequel to the viral and exceptional fan film, Street Fighter: Legacy (provided below).
Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist is expected to debut on the Machinima YouTube channel this May. The series is planned for an eventual jump to TV, On-demand and a DVD/Blu-ray release. Make sure you keep an eye out for actor Mark Killeen, who played Mero in ‘Game of Thrones.’
