Story about Ken & Ryu's history stars Togo Igawa, Akira Koieyama, Mike Moh, Shōgen, more

The media streaming service Machinima posted a teaser trailer for the live-action Street Fighter Assassin's Fist series on Friday. Street Fighter: Legacy director and writer Joey Ansah is helming the series that began filming last July.

Ansah launched a Kickstarter campaign last April, but he soon canceled the crowdfunding initiative after receiving full funding from unnamed supporters.

Ansah co-wrote the script for the new series with Christian Howard. Jacqueline Quella, who also produced Street Fighter: Legacy, is producing the series. Street Fighter producer Yoshinori Ono had announced the live-action feature-length series at San Diego Comic Con in 2012.

The series is set in Japan and explores the history of Ken, Ryu, Gōken, Gōki/Akuma, and Gōtetsu. Togo Igawa (The Last Samurai, 47 Ronin) plays Gōtetsu, while Mike Moh (Kamen Rider: Dragon Knight, School Dance) plays Ryu. Akira Koieyama (Blood: The Last Vampire, 47 Ronin) is cast as Gōken, and Shōgen (Kaiji: The Ultimate Gambler, The Shadow Inside) is performing as young Gōken. Gaku Space (Shake It Up!, How I Met Your Mother) plays young Gōki. Mark Killeen (The Game of Thrones, The Dark Knight Rises) plays Mr. Masters. Ansah and Howard are cast as Akuma and Ken, respectively. Hal Yamanouchi (The Wolverine, Push) plays Senzō.
