Fans of the popular Street Fighter fighting franchise from video game developer and publisher Capcom are likely well versed in the near thirty-year-old property’s many featured combatants, who most recently made their respective appearances in the fifth entry in the series proper, Street Fighter V, last month. What’s more, the team behind the popular web-series Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist will be back with their new film Street Fighter: Resurrection, which will be the first Machinima Studios original series to air exclusively on go90 later this month.
Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist writer/director Joey Ansah will return to produce the new four-episode, live-action miniseries set to take place a decade after the events of the former feature program, and will serve as the lead-in narrative arc to Capcom’s latest gaming franchise title. For those eager to see more from the new series before its premiere later this month, the latest official trailer for Street Fighter: Resurrection has just dropped (courtesy of Machinima).
In the latest footage featured above, iconic Street Fighter character, who previously presumed dead, Charlie Nash makes his triumphant return to the franchise, with series regulars Ryu and Ken tasked with the mission of stopping Nash from taking out other legendary champions. The new series will be produced by former Assassin’s Fist filmmakers Jacqueline Quella and Mark Wooding, with Mike Moh (Empire), Christian Howard (The World’s End), and Alain Moussi (Suicide Squad) in the roles of Ryu, Ken, and Nash. The show is also set to feature cameo appearances from the likes of YouTube personalities Amy Johnston and Terroriser.
