New Street Fighter Assassin’s Fist Trailer Features Ken

The previous Street Fighter Assassin’s Fist trailer focused on Ryu, which is understandable as the white gi-wearing world warrior is pretty much synonymous with the franchise. However, fans of the Ryu’s fellow student of ansatsuken, the red gi-wearing Ken Masters, will appreciate the new trailer as it shows a little bit of the path that he took in order to get to where he is now. You can watch the teaser trailer below:

New Street Fighter Series Teased: Assassin’s Fist

10-31-11.streetfighter

When you think “Live-Action Street Fighter,” the images that come to mind are not that good, as you’ll most likely imagine the so-bad-it’s-good live action film with Van Damme or the just-plain-bad Chun Li one with Kristin Kreuk. Capcom wants to erase that stigma, and they’re going to do it with the help of online entertainment company Machinima, via a new live-action series for the Machinima network titled “Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist.”

Frankly, we’re aware that teasers rarely ensure the overall quality of a project, but the teaser for Assassin’s Fist is all sorts of badass. If you’re curiosity is piqued, you can go ahead and watch the teaser below:

Street Fighter’s Ryu Beats Up a Car in Turkish Commercial

If you’re a fan of the Street Fighter franchise (especially if you’ve been a fan since the 90s), you’re going to love the new commercial from the Turkish insurance company Anadolu Sigorta, as it features one of the most recognizable parts of the franchise: the car-wrecking bonus stage. And they’ve done it using a mix of animated sprites and live action footage that mimics the original videogame’s background scene.

The commercial features a guy being interviewed by a reporter about whether his car is insured. The guy feels confident that nothing bad will happen to his car, which means he doesn’t need any insurance. Enter: Gouki’s greatest student and master of shotokan, Ryu. The rest, you should watch for yourself:

If you’ve ever watched any of the old 60s motion comics from Marvel (Captain America, Hulk, Fantastic Four), you’re well aware that while it has a certain appeal, the crude animation – sometimes made up of a single frame with only the mouth and an arm moving – were made that way to save on production costs. Now that producing full motion toons is easier, partly due to the use of computers, Motion Comics are still being made and supported. Such examples include the Animatrix, Assassin’s Creed: Ascendance, Thor & Loki: Blood Brothers, and the newly released Street Fighter: The New Challengers.

CG-Animated Farmville Movie Adaptation a Possibility

CG-Animated Farmville Movie Adaptation a Possibility

Whether it’s a straight adaptation of an existing franchise like Street Fighter or a film like Scott Pilgrim VS the World, which simply borrows heavily from popular gaming tropes and concepts, Hollywood is no stranger to videogame-to-movie adaptations. But these adaptations are live-action, and tend to focus more on heavy console-based franchises than games based on lighter fare, and chances are you’ve never seen a CG-animated movie based on a casual, flash-based game. That could all change in the near future.
