The production team behind the recent "Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist" web series has announced plans for a sequel - "Street Fighter: World Warrior".
"Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist" debuted earlier this year as a twelve-part series on Machinima. It has garnered in excess of 16 million views and has an unprecedented approval rating of 99.3%. It will score a global release on DVD, Blu-ray, TV and VOD later this year.
'World Warrior' will introduce more of the game's iconic characters and producer Mark Wooding says some big and primal themes will be explored in this sequel. Writer/director Joey Ansah will return for the follow-up and spoke about some of the new web series' storyline at Comic Con this weekend:
"The scale of Street Fighter: 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). 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!"
