After the success of the Mortal Kombat web series, it only makes sense that Street Fighter would follow suit. Check out the first poster and the synopsis for the upcoming Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist web series.
The story in Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist centers on the master of Ken and Ryu, Gouken, who himself trained under ‘Asatsuken (Assassin’s Fist)’ grandmaster Goutetsu. Also training under Goutetsu was the legendary Street Fighter villain, Akuma, who is Gouken’s brother. In the web series Gouken reflects on how the Asatsuken sent he and his brother down conflicting paths of ‘Light’ and ‘Dark’ and whether he should pass along all of its secrets to Ken and Ryu. Will the same split that befell Gouken and Akuma occur with Ken and Ryu?
In addition to portraying Gōki/Akuma, Joey Ansah (The Bourne Ultimatum) served as director and co-wrote the script with Ken actor Christian Howard. Togo Igawa (Memoirs of a Geisha, The Last Samurai) will portray grandmaster Goutetsu. Mike Moh (Kamen Rider: Dragon Knight) plays Ryu. Hal Yamanouchi (The Wolverine) will portray Senzo. Akira Koieyama (Rush, 47 Ronin) plays Gouken. Mark Killeen (Game of Thrones) plays Ken’s father.
