Now this is awesome. Yeah, Kazuya is not as cool as I’d hoped to but this live action short film that is based on Capcom’s and Namco’s crossover between Street Fighter and Tekken is amazing. Thankfully, the dialogue is in Japanese which adds a nice touch and the fights are gorgeous. And Ken is as cool as always. And Jin makes a short appearance at the end. And there are special ‘signature’ moves from both sides. And now I seriously want a triple-A movie of Street Fighter x Tekken. Enjoy!
The film is created by Thousand Pounds Action company, directed by Christopher C.Cowan and co-directed by Haile Lee. When the renowned world warrior Ryu, (from Street Fighter lore) begins to struggle with the darkness inside (The “Satsui no hadou”) it attracts the attention of a man who has come to fully accept his own darkness, Kazuya Mishima (Tekken series regular). With the Devil Gene howling inside Ryu’s mind, Kazuya attacks, catching him off guard and taking advantage of his battle within. Who will win when these worlds collide?
