Canadian-based media company eOne has secured a deal to make a television series adaptation of the venerable “Street Fighter” video game series franchise.
The TV series version of the game will follow the game’s World Warrior story-arc from “Street Fighter II: The World Warrior” – the sequel to the original arcade game – focusing on Ryu, Ken, Guile and Chun-Li. Together, they fight to take down M. Bison, the evil mastermind who runs the global criminal organization, Shadaloo, but get ensnared in M. Bison’s World Warrior Tournament, a competition devised by M. Bison to find the most powerful and capable fighter in the world.
Developed and published by Capcom, Street Fighter is one of the most well-known and successful video game franchises. It has sold over 40 million software units since its initial arcade release in 1987. The latest installment in the franchise, Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, is available now for PlayStation 4 and PC.
