Here’s another new image from the Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist web series. This time, the focus is on Mr. Masters ( Mark Killeen) visiting his old friend Gouken Sensei (Akira Koieyama). There’s also a very young, slightly chubby Ryu greeting Mr. Masters who has a hippie son in his car. We’ll assume this is a scene from the web series where Mr. Masters drops off Ken to train with Gouken.
“Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist” is an upcoming Capcom sanctioned live-action webseries from the team behind the noteworthy web short, “Street Fighter: Legacy.” The story will explore the early days of series stars Ryu and Ken and tell the story of their tutelage under Gouken, who must decide whether to pass down all the secrets of the ‘Asatsuken (Assassin’s Fist) fighting style after experiencing first hand the ill-effects that befall his younger brother, Akuma. Gouken struggles with whether his two young trainees Ken and Ryu will split along the path of light and darkness just as he and Akuma did as they learned from their master, Goutetsu. Joey Ansah (The Bourne Ultimatum) will direct from a script he co-wrote with Ken actor Christian Howard in addition to portraying Akuma. 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 while actor Mark Killeen (Game of Thrones) will play Ken’s father, Mr. Masters. Akira Koieyama plays Gouken and Shogen plays a ‘Young Gouken’. The project is aiming for an early 2014 release.
