Following on from Ryu and Chun-Li, and Cammy and Guile, the free-to-play battle royale game Fortnite has now added another two Street Fighter characters.
This time around we’ve got the World Warriors Blanka and Sakura – appearing in a new special cup. It’s all to celebrate 35 years of Street Fighter. These characters will be available in-game as of 28th April, there’ll also be a special loading screen up for grabs.
Here’s a look at both of these fighters, as they appear in Fortnite. As you can see with Blanka, there’ll even be an alt-style outfit inspired by Rival Schools’ Boman Delgado.
Seeing him in action is no joke. Unleash the beast with the Blanka Outfit, which comes with the Blanka Delgado alt Style inspired by Rival Schools’ Boman Delgado. Celebrating a K.O. elimination? Break out the Outfit’s built-in Blanka Backflip Emote.
Included with the Blanka Outfit is the Blanka-Chan Back Bling. Don’t step on it — the more eliminations you get in a match, the more electrified it gets. And the preferred snack of electrified warriors everywhere, the Tropical Hazard Kebab Pickaxe will also be available.
And next up is Ryu’s #1 fan, Sakura. Above you can also see the Bonus Stage unlockable loading screen. You can learn more about the new characters and cup over on the Epic games website.
After Ryu set foot on the Island, it was only a matter of time before Sakura followed. Prove you’re as strong as Ryu with the Sakura Outfit, which comes with the Sakura Gym alt Style inspired by one of her Street Fighter IV alts. Already sure of your victory? Activate the Outfit’s built-in Sakura’s Victory Sway Emote.
A reminder of home, the Sakura Outfit includes the Hanakaze Claw Back Bling. For those extra confident of their victory, flaunt the Fighting Tournament Trophy Pickaxe. Additionally, keep the pests away with the Kayari Buta Glider.
