Discotek Adds Fatal Fury: The Motion Picture, Cybersix

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Film based on SNK fighting games, 13-episode sci-fi series slated for 2014

North American video distributor Discotek Media announced on Monday that it licensed Fatal Fury: The Motion Picture and the Cybersix animated series.

Based on the fighting game series by SNK, the Fatal Fury film was released in Japan in 1994 and in North America (by Viz Media) in 1999. The story follows Terry and Andy Bogard, Joe Higashi, and Mai Shiranui as they attempt to stop Laocorn Gaudeamus from recovering the lost pieces of an armor, one that imbues the owner with the power of the God of War.

Discotek stated it is attempting to create a 16:9 transfer from the film negatives, especially since an anamorphic release does not currently exist. The film will be released next year.

Cybersix is based on an Argentinian comic book by Carlos Trillo and Carlos Meglia. Telecom Animation Film adapted the comic into an 13-episode animated series in 1999. The series aired on Canada's Teletoon station as well as on American television. The story follows female cybernetic creation Cybersix after escaping from her creator, the evil Dr. Von Reichter. Cybersix adopts the persona of a male high school teacher while fighting the plots of Dr. Von Reichter.

Discotek will release the series next year.
