Live-action series Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist is getting a sequel, the production team announced at San Diego Comic-Con today. The follow up, Street Fighter: World Warrior, will introduce the series’ main antagonist, the criminal organization Shadaloo led by M. Bison.

“There are some big and primal themes which we’ll be exploring in the sequel,” observed Mark Wooding. “It will be thrilling and naturally, as befits the game, the fights will be epic, but it will be driven by the characters, their stories, faults and problems. It will be a dark tale.”

Capcom’s wildly-successful Street Fighter is one of the biggest fighting videogames, and has millions of fans and players worldwide. The announcement marks a return to Comic Con, the convention at which Assassin’s Fist was announced in 2012.

While Assassin’s Fist focused mainly on Street Fighter mainstays Ken, Ryu and their master Gouken, World Warrior will introduce characters like Guile, Chun-li and Sagat. Director Joey Ansah and the rest of the series’ creators will return for the sequel series.

Producer Jacqueline Quella said: “We are incredibly happy to continue our relationship with Capcom, to bring more of the iconic characters from the Street Fighter videogame to the screen. We demonstrated with Assassin’s Fist that an authentic, live-action version of videogames, with a compelling and dramatic storyline, can be made. We’ll be taking the same approach with the new series.”

Street Fighter: World Warrior is scheduled to arrive in late 2015 or early 2016.

Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist comes to DVD, Blu-ray, on-demand and downloadable formats on Oct. 28 in the U.S., U.K., Australia and New Zealand. A Japanese release is scheduled for November.

Distributed by Content Media Corporation, it was also announced at Comic Con that the DVD and Blu-ray versions of the series will include an exclusive, unreleased ‘Epilogue’ episode, as well as numerous extras; including behind-the-scenes material, deleted scenes and a Director’s commentary.
