Film; Streetfighter Legacy – Short Trailer

Spread the love

Indulge in some nostalgia for three minutes while watching this “fan made” short. But if you think it’s going to be as bad as the two feature length films made under the Streetfighter name then think again. This three minutes is better, more accurate and more entertaining. Make sure you click on full screen HD and plug in your surround sound speakers.

Legacy (officially endorsed by Capcom) was the brainchild of actor Joey Ansah (Bourne Ultimatum); who says on the films facebook page:
“As an actor, film maker and a fan, I have been repeatedly disappointed by the many diluted, un faithful and outright butchered movie adaptations of fighting video games. It was clear to me, that given the way the movie industry worked, we would never see a super faithful, darker toned and more adult themed (or just plain good!) incarnation of Street fighter unless a die-hard fan director or film-making team with the game canon knowledge, film making know how and connections stepped up to the plate to helm such a project.”
“My Team and I have strived to make a beautiful lil’ film that hopefully non fans will really appreciate, but ultimately this is a love letter to the Fans and the brilliance of the game. As a result I’ve gone to every length to be as faithful as possible down to the smallest details of the costume, the choreography, the narrative, the original music themes and of course the special moves!”

I hope they find someone to fund a full length version. With lots of pretty effects, interesting eyebrows, special moves and combos please!!
