Capcom and Machinima are teaming to produce “Street Fighter: Resurrection,” a live-action miniseries adaptation of the “Street Fighter” video game franchise.
The five episode series will kick off in March through Verizon’s go90 app and ties into the release early next year of the highly anticipated “Street Fighter V”.
The story is set ten years after the events in previous Machinima series “Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist”. Mike Moh and Christian Howard are reprising their roles as Ryu and Ken respectively, and are joined by Alan Mousi in the lead role of Charlie Nash – a character who has returned from the dead in the game.
Nash is targeting legendary champions for unknown reasons and Ryu and Ken are determined to find out why. The release comes in the wake of ‘Assassin’s Fist’ which pulled in 17 million aggregate views across its twelve episode run.
“Street Fighter V” meanwhile releases February 16th on PS4 and PC.
