After the 2016 Capcom Cup finished, the publisher surprised audiences by announcing “Street Fighter V: Resurrection,” a live-action video series and a prequel to the “Street Fighter V” video game. The web series will be shown through Machinima and will come out sometime in the spring of 2016.

Event Hubs has confirmed that the development team of “Resurrection” are the same team that worked on the acclaimed “Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist” video series. Considering how well received that video series was, it looks like fans of the fighting game don’t have to worry about it too much.

“Resurrection” seems like a fitting title for the series, especially since Nash is in the first teaser video. Nash hasn’t been seen in any of the series’ installments aside from “Street Fighter Alpha 3” on the original PlayStation where the character was seemingly killed after fighting M. Bison.

Judging from the title of the series, it looks like it will detail what happened to Nash after the events of “Alpha 3” and how he survived. The series might also detail his alignment, as the trailers for the game don’t make it clear if he’s with the side of the angels, though to be fair these are videos of a fighting game, so fans want to see fights.

It will also be interesting to see how the video series explains the new look Nash has, with metal plates in his head and chest area. The character has also gained some deadly new moves in the video game, so seeing him develop said techniques in an online series might be intriguing.

Capcom has yet to confirm if more characters from the games will appear in “Resurrection.” Given Nash’s history in the series, likely suspects for a cameo include Guile and Chun-Li, two characters that he formed a friendship with.

An article from Siliconera has confirmed that more information about the series will be revealed next year, so fans will have to wait till spring. “Street Fighter V” will be coming out on Feb. 16 on PS4 and Windows PC, while the live-action “Resurrection” series comes a month or so after.
