    Now this is something I'm highly anticipating. After the taste they gave with the short film, Street Fighter: Legacy, featuring Ken and Ryu engaging in a hand to hand face off I was eager to see how they'd expand on it. Jon Woo was flawless as Ryu and Christian Howard gave a true to form Ken. That no budget short did more in two minutes than either major motion picture production did with their lengthy tellings. This should be the Street Fighter all fans of the game will appreciate with its altruistic approach. I will certainly be watching out for this.
