‘Street Fighter V’ to Get Live-Action Miniseries Tie-In Via Machinima

A live-action miniseries adaptation of video game “Street Fighter” is coming from its publisher, Capcom, and Machinima titled “Street Fighter: Resurrection.”

The series, which run five episodes on Verizon’s go90 app beginning in March, will tie into the hotly anticipated next release of the game franchise, “Street Fighter V.” “Street Fighter: Resurrection” will follow a character who has returned from the dead in the game, Charlie Nash.

The story is set 10 years after the events in previous Machinima series “Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist” and includes the same producers, Jacqueline Quella and Mark Woding, and director and writer Joey Ansah. Alain Mousi will play Charlie and Mike Moh and Christian Howard are reprising their roles as Ryu and Ken respectively. Mousi’s Nash is targeting legendary “Street Fighter” champions for unknown reasons and Ryu and Ken are determined to find out why.

Capcom and Machinima’s partnership has proved fruitful in the past. “Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist” managed to pull in over 17 million views in aggregate across the 12 episodes of the series’ run. Although shorter, “Street Fighter: Resurrection” stands to do just as well with the returning inclusion of series icons Ken and Ryu, the fan favorite Charlie Nash, and the fact that this series is a tie-in to the popular fighting game rather than just being a standalone using the same characters.

“Street Fighter V” releases Feb. 16 on PS4 and PC and “Street Fighter: Resurrection” follows it in March.
