Not long ago, a fan-made short film called “Street Fighter Legacy” was released and screened on the Internet. However, this isn't the end. The producers of Street Fighter Legacy, with Capcom's blessing and permission, have launched a Kickstarter campaign
to produce a live-action series called “Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist” which seemingly explores the concept of the Satsui no Hadou which is also called the “Killing Intent” or the “Assassin's Fist.” It is a path of martial arts that focuses on killing which is a common plot device with Ryu who is the titular protagonist of the Street Fighter franchise.
The creators have launched a Kickstarter to explain their cause and why they are looking to crowdfunding instead of investors. According to the creators, funding from investors came with strings attached. Instead of taking the money with strings attached, the creators explain that they want to keep the series true to the spirit of Street Fighter. One of the producers is Joey Ansah who has been in some films with one such film being part of the Jason Bourne trilogy.
In this video, the producers make their case for creating the video. This Kickstarter pretty much explains what the producers want to do. If you are a fan of the “Street Fighter” franchise, you may want to invest a bit of money. The producers explain that people that those that invest will get some goodies.
This is similar to how the “Mortal Kombat” short film got the game makers' attention. As a result, the creator of the short film is now in charge of the production of the “Mortal Kombat Legacy” web series.
