Original note: It seems that Fortnite wants to compete against Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and take home the title of the biggest crossover in the video game industry. Today a couple of leaks that point to the arrival of a couple of Street Fighter characters to this battle royale.
According to Lucas7yoshi, who has leaked information from Fortnite in the past, a portal to the world of Street Fighter will arrive at the battle royale in the next few days. The video that was shared takes a look at Suzaku Castle, Ryu’s setting in Street Fighter II, where you can also hear the theme of this fighter.

Although at the moment there is no official information, the game code reveals that two Street Fighter characters would arrive at the Fortnite store in the coming days. Although no specific names are offered, the leak does mention a male and a female fighter. Thus, Ryu and Chun-Li are very likely to have a special skin this season.
This season, portals have also been opened to bring characters from The Walking Dead, Terminator and Predator franchises to Fortnite. So It’s only a matter of time before Epic Games and Capcom confirm this collaboration.
