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.
