Prepare for Ryu and Chun-Li to unleash fury on the Battle Royale Island!
There is not long left in Fortnite Season 5, however, Agent Jonesy still has a few more hunters to recruit. So far, we’ve seen famous faces from the worlds of gaming, television and cinema join the action, but who’s next?
A popular theory amongst fans earlier in the week was that the title characters of Marvel-based superhero sitcom “WandaVision” would be entering the fray. Now though, this doesn’t seem so likely.
New leaks suggest that it will instead be a collaboration with the legendary Street Fighter video game series. A recent post from the official Fortnite account further confirms this, with a teaser reading “Round 1. FIGHT”.

The trailer for this upcoming crossover was shared by @YoungPook707 and confirms Street Fighter’s Ryu and Chun-Li as the next skins to arrive. There is also speculation that Chun-Li will come with an additional color variant.
Each fighter is set to feature a built-in emote, which is sure to spark fear in even the boldest of opponents. Check them out below, again all credit goes to @YoungPook707:
I wonder if instead of pick axes they will use there fist and feet to gather materials! Food for thought? Your predictions? pic.twitter.com/Zp4bVYBnJa— Fortnitepook707 (@YoungPook707) February 19, 2021
Epic has now published the Street Fighter trailer on the Fortnite YouTube channel. The new outfits, along with the Emotes and other cosmetics will be available when the Item Shop resets on February 20, at 7PM ET.
