    1. I think they are still getting everything together all they have is storyboard the people who will probably do the story writing and the studio backing the tv launch still need actors the sets all that other stuff

  1. When Liu Kang is made to pronounce Ryu (Rii-you) as Rwhy-you, I don’t have hope in this if it’s being made by someone in the US. Then again, the Street Fighter movie from the early 90s with Raul Julia & JCVD did pronounce Ryu right at least. Yeah. I’m 50/50 on this.

  2. Because Capcom and Yoshinori Ono loves Street Fighter so much that they want to keep milking this dead series. It time that Street Fighter needs to die Mega Man 11 is on the way and We might get Mega Man X 9 somewhere down the road now Street Fighter is life support after Street Fighter 4. This series was crap to begin with (Street Fighter 2 was the only good game in the series)
