As we patiently wait for the first trailer to be released, the Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist camp has released a new image from the live-action web series. In this newest still, we see master and pupils, Gōken-Sensei (Akira Koieyama) between Ryu (Mike Moh) and Ken (Christian Howard). Executive producer Joey Ansah has promised fans that a trailer is on the way soon. Nevertheless, this image (like all the rest) continue to keep our hopes for the project very high.

“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.
