Two weeks ago we premiered Joey Ansah’s Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist ‘Ryu’ teaser trailer along with the poster and 16 images. When we posted the article, I mentioned we’d premiere the next teaser trailer in two weeks, which brings us to today. In this new teaser, focusing on Ken, we get a better look the character’s backstory and a great tease at his flaming shoryuken (which looks awesome).
For those unfamiliar with Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist, it was created by Ansah and his producing partner Jacqueline Quella. After the success of Ansah’s Street Fighter Legacy live-action short film, they acquired the rights from Capcom and created a multi-format series called Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist. Premiering next month on Machinima as a 12-part series and then airing on TV, the show is about the coming of age of Ken & Ryu (the two iconic Street Fighter characters). Over the course of the series, we will see how the past, present, and future of all of the Street Fighter characters are intertwined. The series stars Ansah, Christian Howard, Togo Igawa, Akira Koieyama, Mike Moh, Gaku Space, Shogen Hyunri, Hal Yamanouchi and Mark Killeen. Hit the jump to watch the new Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist Ken teaser trailer.
For more on the series, read what Ansah had to say about it here. And below the images you can watch an early look at the SFAF animated logo, along with an early look ‘behind the scenes’ via a montage of B-roll footage.
