Fortnite x Street Fighter collaboration brings new Outfits, Tournaments, and more

World Warriors Blanka and Sakura are taking a break from the crane game to reach for victory on Fortnite Island! Later this week, you’ll be able to purchase their Outfits and accessories in the Item Shop to commemorate the 35th anniversary of Street Fighter. Two more Street Fighter combatants are heading to Fortnite in the Fortnite x Street Fighter collaboration that brings new Outfits, Tournaments, and more, and players will have the opportunity to compete for the Sakura and Blanks cosmetics in two forthcoming tournaments.

The first two Street Fighter characters debuted in Fortnite in February of 2021. Ryu and Chun-Li are two of the most well-known Street Fighter characters. As a result, their debut was well-received, with many players preferring Chun-smaller Li’s physical appearance to Ryu’s massive strong physique.

Despite the fact that seeing them with weaponry is a little strange, they fit in nicely with Fortnite’s scenario. And now, two more Street Fighter legends have now entered the fray. Blanka is a beast, and Sakura is a master of martial arts.
