Video games movies are historically bad. No video game franchise has been able to get it right, including Street Fighter.
But now it seems that the Capcom’s immortal franchise will try to break the curse with a TV series.
According to Deadline, a new series based on arcade fighting game is in the works.
Street Fighter the series will draw on the game’s World Warrior story-arc — introduced in the 1991 Street Fighter II: The World Warrior sequel to the original game — as the jumping off point, centering on four protagonists: Ryu, Ken, Guile and Chun-Li. Together, they fight to take down M. Bison, the evil mastermind who runs Shadaloo, a global criminal organization. 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.
Lets hope they will finally get the characters right and that Jean Claude won’t make the soundtrack.
