Street Fighter hasn't exactly had a long history of being successfully adapted to live-action, however, despite this, the famous video game franchise will once again attempt to make the jump from pixels to film... sort of.

Machinama will be hosting a new 12-part live-action webseries based on the game. Titled Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist, it will follow the origin story of Ryu and Ken. Two characters who famously shared almost entirely identical fighting styles, including the extremely annoying hadouken move - I could never dodge that thing. Ryu has received his own 'origins' teaser, while we also have a second, slightly more generic trailer. Check them out below:

You'll be able to watch the series on Machinima from May 2014.

What do you think? An interesting concept, or another video game adaptation destined to fail? Let us know below.
