Filming on Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist live action series has begun - will feature Goutetsu, young versions of Akuma and Gouken It was announced at the Street Fighter San Diego Comic-Con panel earlier today that the live action series, Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist, has begun its filming. Assassin's Fist will focus on telling the story of Ryu and Ken's origins.

Back in April, the team behind the project began a Kick Starter campaign in order to raise the funds for Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist. Later on in the year, the Kick Starter was canceled due to the acquiring of a financial backer.

Over on the official SF:AF website we found a few casting posts that give an idea of what kind of actors the team is looking for to play each character. We'll see familiar faces like Ryu and Ken, as well as Gouken, Akuma and Sayaka (Gouken's niece / possibly Ryu's mother), each of which will have an 8 - 10 year old version of themselves portrayed in the series, along with more adult versions as well, that you're more familiar with.

Hit the jump to check out a batch of videos that feature Togo Igawa (the actor playing Goutetsu), Hyunri (Sayaka), Akira Koieyama (Gouken) and Gaku Space (Akuma) as they discuss the series.

Totally groovy idea. I just hope it doesn't end up like those other Street Fighter movies.

Looking forward to this, its time the world got a true version of what of street fighter series should be about not that van damme crap (although I thought van damme was not the reason it failed) xD
This sounds good.

@5
actually, that sounds as a valid guess. doesn't matter if he's dead; gouken was, too.

There will never be a good live action Street Fighter movie. I think Bloodsport has come the closest to what it should be.

@9 Safer bet on Goutetsu than Go Hibiki. (Gou Hibiki appeared in Puzzle Fighter if im not mistaking, and he does his Raging Demon)

Goutetsu or Ryu's Mommy on USF4 then.....

I think it could be Go Hibiki since he has a storyline related to sagat. Because of Go, Sagat lost his eye so it would be a good rival storyline in USF4. Go would appear out of the shadows and sagat would be shocked. Kind of cool.

@ catalyst I'm pretty sure this person xul is breaking all the rules her and I'm tired of reading his disgusting comments. his constant use of the word gay and queer and co##sucker is too much. It's hard to believe you guys moderate at times, this guy has been goin on like this for months.

I love this site, but I don't come here to feel like this. please ban this horrible person.

@ xul you are garbage, plain and simple. the constant use of gay and queer or retard Is too much. You need to move on. You bring nothing to the table but hate. You sound like a angry little child, another keyboard warrior hiding behind a screen. with an attitude like yours one can only imagine the lack of friends you have.
