The first season of Street Fighter: Resurrection, a continuation of the events from Assassin’s Fist, kicks off from Machinima Studios with a shadowy new threat that’ll be familiar to fans.
Set 10 years after the events of Assassin’s First, Resurrection returns Alain Moussi (Jai Courtney’s stunt double in Suicide Squad) as Charlie Nash, who was long thought to be dead after a mission with Guile and Chun-Li went sour. Now, he’s back and he’s attacking legendary Street Fighter champions as part of a mysterious mission. Ryu (Empire actor Mike Moh) and Ken (The World’s End stuntman Christian Howard) are among his targets, and they team up to uncover his true intentions, leading up to a showdown in London with the Shadaloo cartel.
In the first episode, “New Challenger,” which you can watch below, Laura Matsuda (Natascha Hopkins) is trying to prove herself as a top tier fighter by challenging Ken to a fight. But two mysterious strangers intervene, proving she may have bitten off a little more than she can chew.
The Bourne Ultimatum actor Joey Ansah, who wrote and directed Assassin’s First, returns as writer and director on Resurrection. Katrina Durden will also appear as Decapre, a “hideously scarred, psychotic assassin” who’s been assumed dead since M Bison fell.
