The crossover frenzy that has been this season of Fortnite appears to be continuing with another legendary gaming franchise. Capcom’s Street Fighter looks like it will be the next to join the game. If you care to look for yourself, the tease is live in battle royale right now.
On Twitter, Fortnite leaker ShiinaBR shared images they obtained that show off what appears inside the next portal. The previous one showed Tron imagery prior to an official announcement, and this one looks like Suzaka Castle. If the level sounds familiar, it may be because in addition to several Street Fighter games, it’s also Ryu’s signature state in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
We were able to verify this ourselves by visiting an area southwest of Sweaty Sands. You have to be standing in the correct spot for the portal to open.
ShiinaBR claims there will be both a male and female character from the series added as hunters in Fortnite. If a leak shared by HypeX and ItzBlake on Twitter is correct, they will be the obvious choices: Ryu and Chun-Li. Both characters have been mainstays of the series for decades.
Fortnite has already featured guest appearances from franchises like Star Wars, Tron, Predator, Halo, God of War, and GI Joe during this season, with some including missions while others are limited to skins and other cosmetic items. This week also brought with it new challenges, including using a harpoon gun on three opponents, dealing damage immediately after gliding, and destroying inflatable tubeman llamas near gas stations.
