A trailer is yet to be shown publicly for the upcoming serial release of actor and director Joey Ansah‘s latest experiment in live-action fighting game feature-length series, Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist as the business of getting things together for a proper distribution platform rolls on ahead of a much-needed air date. However, on Friday, the official Facebook decided to give fans a glimpse into the score to be used in the series by Patrick Gill and Bolo Music UK, sampling two tracks – Three Days Three Nights, and an electric guitar-infused variation on Ken’s Theme that differs from the one introduced in Ansah’s 2010 breakout concept pitch, Street Fighter Legacy. Naturally, it brings curiousity as to what the track for the series will deliver for the character Ryu in the same comparison. Of course, we’ll just have to wait and see before then.
Also, the official Facebook page has offered a six minute B-Roll with speaking segments from Ansah and other cast and crew, along with other explosive behind-the-scenes shots of the action that awaits!
