Round One: Street Fighter’s Ryu and Chun-Li Square Off in Fortnite

The Fortnite Team

If you’re trying to secure the Zero Point, could there be a more PERFECT choice than recruiting World Warriors from Street Fighter? Starting today, two of Capcom’s greatest fighters join the Item Shop. 

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).
