Entertainment One Producing Street Fighter TV Show

Capcom’s popular fighting game series Street Fighter is about to get its own television show. The Media Company, Entertainment One, will both produce and finance the program which is being developed by the team that also created the live action internet series Street Fighter: Assassin Fist.

According to a report from Deadline, the new TV show will focus on Street Fighter’s “World Warrior” storyline. The first arc includes four of the series most popular characters including Ryu, Ken, Guile, and Chun-Li.

What’s It All About?

“Together, they fight to take down M. Bison, the evil mastermind who runs Shadaloo, a global criminal organization,” says a line explaining the show’s description. “Though on different journeys, our heroes’ paths will cross as they are drawn into the World Warrior Tournament, a competition devised by M. Bison to find the most powerful and capable fighter in the world. On the journey they come to share, they must draw on their strength, skills, intelligence, and loyalty in a battle to survive and emerge as the World Warrior.” (https://bit.ly/2pziiek)

Entertainment One’s president, Mark Gordon, explained that part of what makes Street Fighter unique and appealing to a wide audience is its diverse set of characters. “A particular strength of Street Fighter is the wide range of ethnically diverse characters and powerful women featured in the game,” he said. “It will allow us to build an inclusive and engaging TV universe.” (https://bit.ly/2pziiek)

Yoshinori Ono, the producer behind the game, said Capcom arrived at Entertainment One after an extensive search to find the right partner to make the series. Ono also said that he believed Entertainment One had the right credentials to make the series a “faithful” adaptation that fans of Street Fighter would enjoy.

We Need Details!

The creator of Assassin’s Fist, Joey Ansah, is returning for the new show. Series Producers Jacqueline Quella and Mark Wooding from Assassin’s Fist are back as well. Currently, there’s no word yet as to who will be cast in the show or even a premiere date/location.

This would not be the first multiplatform effort the series has gone through. Jean-Claude Van Damme was in the 1994 movie Street Fighter, while 2009’s Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li starred Michael Clarke Duncan, Kristin Kreuk, Chris Klein, and Neal McDonough.

Fans of Street Fighter are also anticipating the soon to be released compilation package named Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection, which hits store shelves in May for PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC.
