Street Fighter: World Warrior, the sequel to Assassin's Fist, announced at San Diego Comic-Con; Chun-Li, Sagat, Guile and more set to appear

Posted by Steven 'Dreamking23' Chavez • July 25, 2014 at 4:50 p.m. PDT

The team behind the live-action Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist series has just announced that there is a sequel in the works.

Deemed "Street Fighter: World Warrior," the new series is currently in development and is set for late 2015/early 2016 launch time.

According to director Joey Ansah, the new series will introduce more characters from the Street Fighter universe, and will be larger-scale production than Assassin's Fist.

"The scale of World Warrior is much larger, picking up where Assassin's Fist left off as we follow Ryu and Ken on their 'Musha Shugyo' (warrior's pilgrimage)," said Ansah. "The Shadaloo criminal cartel will be introduced, led by the extremely dangerous M.Bison, which will naturally lead into the World Warrior tournament… and we all know what this means - fan favourites Guile, Chun-li, Sagat and Co. will be playing a big part!"

Producer Mark Wooding states that World Warrior will explore some "big and primal themes," and notes that this installment will be a dark tale driven by the characters, their stories, and their problems.

Additionally, Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist is receiving an international DVD and Blu-Ray release, as well as video-on-demand and download-to-own, in the Fall of this year. The DVD/Blu-Ray versions of Street Fighter: World Warrior will include an exclusive "Epilogue" episode, along with extras, deleted scenes, and director commentary.

"We have gone the extra mile to ensure that the DVD/Blu-ray is packed with extras and exclusive content, to make it a 'must own' for fans who have already enjoyed the series on other formats. The Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist journey is not complete until you have watched this version," said Joey Ansah.

Interesting. Not exactly the news I am waiting on from SDCC, but I guess it's news nonetheless.

Awesome! Assassin's Fist did the franchise justice and I'm excited for this now.

Errrrrrrrrr what about Street Fighter 1 and Alpha? Just going to ignore that?

#21
jme said on July 25, 2014 at 5:51 p.m.

Assassins Fist kinda told origins. But that doesn't mean thatg the second season ISN'T Alpha/SF1. Technically speaking, Shadaloo was introduced in Alpha since alpha is first chronologically speaking.

Coo. I enjoyed Assassins Fist, so let's hope this one will be as good.

VulcanHades said on July 25, 2014 at 6:19 p.m.

I'm happy to hear that but at the same disappointed if this was Capcom's "big surprise announcement".

I mean a sequel to Assassin's Fist isn't that surprising considering the success it had. Everyone loved it so of course they would make another one.

#26
Strider_Hien said on July 25, 2014 at 6:23 p.m.

@Leon X-Of course this is one of them.You expect game announcements after the release of Ultra Street Fighter 4?! No chance....We're not getting any news on Capcom gems until Late 2015,at most.It's way too early......With impending FG releases(Persona,GG and MK),they don't want competitors or cries of market saturation.

SAMURAI said on July 25, 2014 at 6:38 p.m.

But it can't get better than Assassin's fist right?
Goutetsu was just too epic, can't get better than that!

Why do people think this is a troll? Personally I'm really happy it is getting a sequel. I hope it is just as good, or even better than the first.

Perfect! Hopefully they won't get overwhelmed now that production is bigger.

Sagat, Bison, Guile, and Chun-li will be on next season....

Wait. Chun-li.... I have to remember since this is World Warriors. This is Chun-li "OMG thighs" we are talking about here. Then, there's Guile with the hair. I can't wait.

Dreamking. I think you mean:

The DVD/Blu-Ray versions of Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist will include an exclusive World Warrior "Epilogue" episode, along with extras, deleted scenes, and director commentary.

I'm sure Joey won't leave SF1 out. It will in flash backs like they did in AF. I want some Eagle and Birdie action in this one.

Color me F*CKING STOKED!
Asassin's Fist was amazing to me!
I was hoping they'd do an origin story for Chun-Li along the same style they did Ryu and Ken. "Street Fighter: World's Strongest Woman"
But I'll take this for second bests.

I hope the consistency and quality continues in a positive direction.

MK Legacy II didn't quite deliver, but I don't think there was as much love for the product as there is for Street Fighter.

Jean Claude van damme(or however the hell you spell his name) spotted during casting for Guile!!!

tktktk43 said on July 26, 2014 at 10:48 p.m.

This is only good news. The team has heart for Street Fighter which imo has been the missing ingredient in all the failed live action films. Hopefully this means a bigger budget. I'm not expecting Hollywood effects and production but hopefully it gets better and better.

#55
streetman88 said on July 27, 2014 at 12:33 p.m.

I think they will at lest have 1,2 or 3 (maybe even more) episodes devoted to Chun-lis backstory since they said this is going to be larger in scale compared to SF:AF. Remember, AF wasn't completely devoted to Ryu and Ken. It was also about Gouken and Gouki and their backstory as well.
