After the critical reception failure of the two live action adaptations of their Street Fighter franchise, CAPCOM were naturally a little wary when approached by Joey Ansah about the possibility of a live action series. Ansah, a 27 year old martial artist and actor who is best known for his work on The Bourne Ultimatum, responded by making a live action pilot and trailer himself in a wood not thirty minutes from London. The resulting three minute film, made on a shoestring budget, is widely regarded as the finest live action Street Fighter adaptation committed to film so far. As a fan of the series for twenty years I can confirm that most of the attacks are pixel perfect, and of course the music is spot on. This is Street Fighter: Legacy.

  1. One kick to throat like that would probably kill the opponent :left: :eyes:I thought Ansah was acting there but it seems he did coreography and directing, right?Btw, when I scroll down, video goes over the frame of a phone picture. Thought you would like to know.

  2. Yeah, there's nothing I can do about Flash content I'm afraid. When Youtube gets switched over the design will work fine, so I've just gotta hope the future comes a little faster.He's acting as Akuma (devil dude at the beginning), I think, and writing/directing too. And yeah, a lot of it they actually did for real rather than choreographing it with wires and mats, hence the reality of the moves if not the effects. Slower than normal or course, but still contact.
