I’ve been talking about it on the show, from stills to trailers, and I was happy when I got the release date. Now it’s here. Machinima’s new web series Street Fighter Assassin’s Fist, Season 1. Assassin’s Fist tells the story of Ken and Ryu as they are trained by their sensei, Gouken, in the art of Ansatsuken and learn to master their hado. In this series, you get a bit of backstory to the history of Ansatsuken, as well as the story of Ryu and Ken’s sensei Gouken and his brother Gouki, who would later submit to the Satsui No Hado (Dark Hado) and become Akuma. This series answers the question of how Ken came to train with Ryu, where Ryu came from (with added hints to who his parents are à la Street Fighter Alpha: Generations), and why Gouki gave himself to the Dark Hado.
