Ryu and Chun-Li Joining Fortnite in Street Fighter Crossover

  

I believe this is the first time I'm writing an article about Fortnite. I hear it's a very popular game. Since its release in 2017, Fortnite has become known for its plethora of crossovers with other franchises, including: Marvel, DC, Star Wars, GI Joe, Terminator, Predator, Tron, and many others. The news today confirms Street Fighter will join Fortnite's catalog of crossovers, with series icons Ryu and Chun-Li joining the mayhem. Epic Games confirmed the Ryu and Chun-Li "outfits" will be added to Fortnite on February 20th (4:00pm PT). Check out the teaser trailer below.

Stay tuned on Fighters Generation for Fortnite news... just kidding. This probably won't happen again, unless SNK, Guilty Gear, or TEKKEN joins in.
