Given the popularity of the Street Fighter franchise, it’s not surprising that we’ve seen adapted onto the big screen. There was that original Street Fighter movie that starred Jean-Claude Van Damme, then there was also that movie that was based on Chun-Li’s character that featured Kristin Kreuk in the titular role.

Then let’s not forget that there was also live-action web series dubbed Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist that made some waves. Basically Street Fighter existing outside of the game isn’t new and now it looks like we will be getting a new TV series. This is according to a report from Deadline who reports that a new series will be developed.

The series is said to be based on the World Warrior story-arc which was introduced in Street Fighter II: The World Warrior where it focuses on Ryu, Ken, Guile and Chun-Li who are trying to take down M. Bison. According to Yoshinori Ono, Capcom Executive Producer for Street Fighter, “After a long search, guided by the team behind Assassin’s Fist, we are delighted to be partnering with a company with the outstanding TV experience of Mark Gordon and eOne. They have the credentials to help us launch a faithful adaptation of Street Fighter as a major TV series.”

There is no word on who will be starring in the upcoming series and when it is expected to be aired, but if you’re fan of the franchise, it could be worth keeping an eye out for.
