As the much awaited “Street Fighter V” will come to gaming platforms next year, a new live-action series set to be tied to the game will also be released. The new webseries, titled “Street Fighter: Resurrection,” is set to premiere sometime in March 2016.

According to Capcom, the “Street Fighter” franchise game developer and publisher will once again team up with Machinima to produce a new live-action mini-series that will be release as a webseries. Called “Street Fighter: Resurrection,” the new series will be set 10 years after “Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist.” It will tell the story of Charlie Nashsomeone who mysteriously came back from the dead.

The character of Charlie will be played by actor Alain Mousi. While also appearing as a real character in some occasions, Mousi is better known as a popular stunt double for actors in action-packed movies. His most recent work include being the stunt double of Jai Courtney in “Suicide Squad,” for Travis Fimmel in “Warcraft,” and for Josh Helman in “X-Men: Days of Future Past.”

The old cast from the previous “Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist” will also be returning. Mike Moh and Christian Howard will be reprising their roles as Ryu and Ken, respectively.

Aside from the series, a new beta test for the PlayStation 4 and PC versions of “Street Fighter V” will begin on Dec. 18, 12:01 AM PT. Each beta participant can share the experience by inviting a friend.

Some of the features in the beta test include Ranked Match, Casual Match, Training, Capcom Fighters Network (CFN), and Battle Setting.
