The first Street Fighter movie was so bad it was kind of good. The second? Plain old bad. That's not dissuading Capcom, however, who say that further live-action Street Fighter projects are currently in the pipeline.
"I think you'll see some clever live-action stuff that will excite our fans at some point in the future, based on Street Fighter", Capcom's Christian Svensson tells GamerLive. "Let's just say that the book is not yet done on Street Fighter film and video projects". He goes on to say "…hopefully we get one right sometime in the future. There are more projects in the works."
You have to wonder why Capcom would continue to beat its head against the wall, when it's fairly obvious that Street Fighter is a series that simply doesn't translate well to the live-action realm. It's too...silly. Now, a big-budget animated feature? Not only is that more suited to the franchise, but there's a successful precedent!
