The team behind Machinima’s “Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist” is back with “Street Fighter: Resurrection,” a live-action miniseries now available on Verizon’s Go90 mobile video service.

The four-episode show, which provides the backstory for Capcom’s recently launched “Street Fighter V” video game, is Machinima’s first series to air exclusively on Go90.

For Verizon, the miniseries is part of an ongoing stream of original, short-form content the telco has acquired for Go90, designed to win over millennials who don’t subscribe to traditional pay TV.

“Street Fighter: Resurrection” is directed and written by Joey Ansah (“The Bourne Ultimatum,” “Snow White and the Huntsman”), and produced by Jacqueline Quella and Mark Wooding. The trio were behind 2014’s 12-episode “Assassin’s Fist,” which told the story of “Street Fighter” characters Ken and Ryu.

Set a decade after the events in “Assassin’s Fist,” “Street Fighter: Resurrection” stars Mike Moh (“Empire”) and Christian Howard (“The World’s End”), who reprise their roles as Ryu and Ken, respectively. The series brings back a character long-presumed dead, Charlie Nash (played by Alain Moussi). In addition, the series features cameos from top Machinima talent including Amy Johnston from Bat in the Sun Productions and Terroriser, who is best known for his autotuning gaming videos.

“Street Fighter: Resurrection” is produced by World Warrior Ltd. with Machinima Studios, and in association with Capcom.

    As a loyal fan of all the games along with Street Fighter Assassins Fist, I have to say shame on Machinima’s distribution methods for Street Fighter Resurrection!!! What about the rest of the world?
