The famous Street Fighter license from the Japanese publisher Capcom will soon come back as a television series.
Street Fighter has often been the subject of several adaptations be it in film (in 1994 with Jean-Claude Van Damme or in 2009 with Kristen Kreuk), in animated series or in web-series. Against all odds, a television series based on the Capcom franchise is currently under development thanks to the team behind Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist, namely Joey Ansah, Jacqueline Quella and Mark Woodin), as well as the Entertainment One company and Mark Gordon.
The show will follow the quartet Ryu, Ken, Guile and Chun-Lin to participate in the World Warrior Tournament to confront Mr. Bison, the head of the world criminal organization known as Shadaloo, who is trying to get his hands on the strongest warrior in the world. The goal of this television series will be to adapt the story of the second installment of the license of the Japanese producer Yoshinori Ono.
