Thousand Pounds Action Company release The Devil Within for launch of Street Fighter X Tekken.
Last November, we let you know about a short film that L.A. martial arts film company, Thousand Pounds Action Company, was working on for the release of Street Fighter X Tekken. While an introductory teaser was available four months ago, the finished short film has now been released, just as the game is hitting store shelves.
The film deals with The Devil Gene, the darkness within a fighter’s soul, that characters from both franchises have to deal with, and which here serves as a catalyst to bring the two worlds violently together.
When the renowned world warrior Ryu (from Street Fighter lore) begins to struggle with the darkness inside (The “Satsui no hadou”) it attracts the attention of a man who has come to fully accept his own darkness, Kazuya Mishima (Tekken series regular). With the Devil Gene howling inside Ryu’s mind, Kazuya attacks, catching him off guard and taking advantage of his battle within. Who will win when these worlds collide?
The video also features Ken Masters, as well as a brief cameo by Jin Kazama near the end of its nearly 10 minute length. Featuring plenty of high-flying martial arts and some explosive special effects, this one is sure to whet your appetite for getting your brawl on.
