No specific details have been revealed on the Machinima original series so far, except that Alain Moussi joins the cast as Charlie Nash, sporting his Street Fighter V look. This at least suggests that the story ties into the events of SFV.
Mike Moh and Christian Howard reprise their roles as Ryu and Ken Masters, respectively, while Joey Ansah also returns to take his mantle as the series writer and director. It's still a mystery if he will reprise his in-film role as Akuma.
Street Fighter: Resurrection will premiere on go90 in March 2016, a month after SFV is released exclusively for the PlayStation 4 and the PC.
Check out the teaser below.
Joey Ansah addresses Street Fighter: World Warrior
Dear SFAF fans. Street Fighter: Resurrection is a highly ambitious, action packed, live-action mini series which serves as a narrative prologue to the events of SFV. With the new game coming out and interest from both Machinima and Capcom for me to make a tie in, I couldn't pass up such an exciting prospect to leap forward a decade after the events of Assassin's Fist and write and direct a very contemporary part of the SF mythos. Featuring old faithful characters and brand new ones. The same level of detail and authenticity has gone into SFR as it has SFAF. I want to also address the subject of STREET FIGHTER: WORLD WARRIOR. Your passion and demand for seeing the direct narrative follow up to SFAF is understandable and heart warming. I spent most of this year completing detailed story development and structure for World Warrior. To pull together a production of that huge scale takes time. So rest assured SFWW is still coming! and to fill the gap until it is ready, you have SFR to look forward to. Trust me it will Shun Goku Satsu your senses. ~ Joey Ansah
