There was a glimpse of Charlie Nash, the street fighter and soldier, in a teaser that Machinima put out earlier for its March 15 Youtube release of "Street Fighter: Resurrection." A trailer released Tuesday finally shows a bit of action for the Web series.
Director and writer Joey Ansah, who guided other "Street Fighter" projects — "Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist" and "Street Fighter: Legacy" — again takes the reins for this new iteration.
In it, Ryu (Mike Moh) and Ken (Christian Howard) still seem to be in training mode, as always, but this time they are in the city, not in secluded mountains. There are also images of a woman in green — maybe new Brazilian fighter Laura — briefly seen before Nash (Alain Moussi) enters. Then the fracas begins.
For the record, 6 p.m. March 10: An earlier version of this post mistakenly said that Ryu was played by Christian Howard and Ken was played by Mike Moh.
Moussi is the stunt double for Jai Courtney, or Captain Boomerang, in the upcoming "Suicide Squad" film. His Street Fighter character, Nash, was presumed dead, but is back and targeting legendary "Street Fighter" champions, apparently looking for Bison, head of a shadowy corporation.
Throw in a test for a mysterious and powerful new weapon, and you've got the makings for lots of fighting and misunderstandings. The announcement of the five-episode miniseries last year set up Capcom's release of the "Street Fighter V" video game. The game has been plagued with problems, with Capcom's "Street Fighter" series executive Producer Yoshinori Ono taking the heat and apologizing for myriad functionality flaws.
The game is offering several patches to install, and it will offer a challenges mode and a story mode for more immersion.
"Resurrection" will be Machinima's first series to air exclusively on go90.
