Capcom is teaming up with Machinima for a new live-action Street Fighter miniseries titled Street Fighter: Resurrection.

Unlike Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist, the previous series Machinima had worked on with Capcom, Resurrection will tie-in with Street Fighter V.

Scheduled to begin in March 2016 and air on go90, the series will span five episodes and follow Charlie Nash, a character that has mysteriously returned from the dead in the new game.

The story is set ten years after Assassin's Fist and stars much of the same cast. Mike Moh and Christian Howard will return to play Ryu and Ken respectively, while Alan Mousi (Suicide Squad, X-Men: Days of Future Past) will depict Charlie.

A trailer for Street Fighter: Resurrection was shown following the grand final of the Capcom Cup fighting game tournament.

Capcom has confirmed the Street Fighter 5 release date as February 16 for North America and Europe. It will be available exclusively on PS4 and PC.

Yoshinori Ono, producer of Street Fighter 5, has said one of Capcom's goals was to make it easy for newcomers to get into the game by "lower[ing] the bar for entry as much as humanly possible."

At PlayStation Experience 2015, Capcom announced the last of the launch characters for Street Fighter V, Fang. It also revealed the opening cinematic and confirmed the lineup of characters coming to the game post-release.

Unlike past games in this series, Capcom only plans to offer a single version of Street Fighter V that they expand with new content; all gameplay DLC can be earned for free by grinding for in-game currency.
