We’ve seen Ryu and his buddies from the Street Fighter series in plenty of fighting games like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and the SNK titles over the years, but this latest crossover is slightly different.
Instead of another fighting game, this time he’ll be transported into the world of Fortnite alongside Chun-Li. To celebrate this collab, Epic has released a special trailer showing the character Jonsey entering the universe of Street Fighter and dropping the pair of video game veterans into the battleground.
According to the Fortnite website, both of these hunters are available now in the Item Shop. Each one comes with an alt outfit:
“Master of the Dragon Punch (a.k.a. “SHORYUKEN!”) and hailing from Japan, Ryu is ready to fight. Select between his traditional white gi, black belt, and red headband or Battle variant. Always ready for action, the Ryu Outift comes equipped with the Training Bag Back Bling and the built-in Shoryuken! Emote.”
“Alongside Ryu, the self-proclaimed “strongest woman in the world”, Chun-Li, is ready for the competition to kneel before her. Players are sure to get (many, many) kicks out of the Chun-Li Outfit and Nostalgia Variant. As a tribute to one of gaming’s greatest arcade games, she comes equipped with the Super Cab-Masher Back Bling and built-in Lightning Kick! Emote. Complete her look with the Seven Star Flashing Flail Pickaxe (sold separately).”
“The Ryu & Chun-Li Bundles also include the “Player Select!” Loading Screen. Separately, the Ryu & Chun-Li Gear Bundle includes the Sumo Torpedo Glider and two Pickaxes: the Seven Star Flashing Flail and Signpost Pummeler Pickaxes.”
