Among all the news pouring out of San Diego Comic-Con at the moment, comes info that Capcom has teamed up with Assassin's Fist Limited to produce a live-action Street Fighter TV series that will take itself seriously. And no, there won't be any Kylie Minogue here.

In case you missed it, a little while ago a Street Fighter fan flick became one of the most successful YouTube movies of all time. Street Fighter: Legacy clocked in over eight million views and also lead Capcom to recruit the film's director, Joey Ansah, as well as Christian Howard, who played Ken in Street Fighter: Legacy, to co-write the new show, which is titled: Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist.

According to IGN, the show will air in 2013 and will follow the series' main characters, Ken and Ryu, during their formative years as they train in the ancient art of Ansatsuken under the tutelage of Gouken.

"Our priority is to stay true to the appearance, fighting techniques and canon of the Street Fighter game," Howard said in a video presentation. "At the same time we’ve managed to make this an emotion and character driven story, which will surprise viewers who might just be expecting a super faithful fight fest!."

""Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist will be what fans have been waiting for. Legacy was a taster; a glimpse of what a live-action Street Fighter should be," Ansah added. “This takes the story right back to the start - the origins and motivations of Ryu, Ken, Gouken and Akuma. This will become the definitive back-story from which further epic adventures will follow.”

Watch the Street Fighter: Legacy fan flick below, and chime in on how you think a show like this should be handled in the Comments section below.

Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie is still the best Street Fighter movie to date imo, would be awesome if the TV series was based around that.
