Legendary video game brawlers Chun Li and Ryu from the Street Fighter series are now available in Fortnite in a new set of skins, and we’ve got everything you need to know to unlock them for yourself.

Fortnite’s next big crossover as part of Season 5’s Zero Point takes us back to the arcade with a load of Street Fighter cosmetics harkening back to Capcom’s classic fighting game.

The highlight definitely has to be the two new skins though, which will let players Hadouken and Kikoken across the island and Ryu and Chun-Li, respectively. If you’re chomping at the bit to get your hands on them, just read how to down below.

How to unlock Ryu and Chun-Li skins in Fortnite

Both skins and all of the other cosmetics unlocked in the Fortnite store on Saturday, February 20, after being leaked beforehand.

If you have the V-Bucks, you can simply head over to the store and pick them up, then drop into a match with either Ryu or Chun-Li, whoever floats your boat (or glider, in this case).

The prices for both Street Fighter crossover skins are listed down below:

Ryu

  • 1600 V-Bucks

Chun-Li

  • 1600 V-Bucks

Ryu and Chun-Li bundle

  • 2200 V-Bucks

Along with the skins, which are awesome enough on their own, you’ll also be getting exclusive emotes with each for your purchase. Ryu’s sadly isn’t a Hadouken, instead he pulls out another well-known move, the Shoryuken (or, “Rising Dragon Fist”) that has him punch up into the air.

Chun-Li’s emote features her Hyakuretsukyaku (AKA Lighting Kick, or Flurry Kick) which will be instantly recognizable to anyone who’s seen her in Street Fighter before. It’s the move where she kicks so fast, her feet and legs just blend into one big blur.

We will continue to update this guide as new information becomes available – and be sure to keep an eye on our Fortnite section for the latest news on Season 5.

New Fortnite leak hints at NPC drivers & boss vehicles in Season 6

Massively popular battle royale game Fortnite might be getting some new features for its vehicles in the near future, including the possibility of NPC drivers or boss vehicles – if a recent code uncovered by a dataminer/leaker on Twitter is to be believed.

If you’ve been hoping for more from the vehicles in Fortnite, then there may be some good news for you on the horizon.

A leaker/dataminer named ‘Mang0e’ over on Twitter has discovered some unreleased “AI spawner capabilities for vehicles” in the Fortnite’s code that were added in during the game’s 15.40 update on February 16, 2021.

While they don’t have an exact answer for what it could be, they do speculate that it could mean that NPC drivers could be coming to the game. If this is the case, this would help players get around the map while also giving them a way to fight back, without having to rely on another player driving the car.

This theory has also grabbed the eye of another Fortnite leaker, iFireMonkey, who claims he had the same exact thought when he first saw the code for himself.

Magn0e also speculates that this code could mean that boss vehicles might be coming to the game, which would then attack players.

Of course, both thoughts are pure speculation at this point, and the only thing we know for a certainty right now is that there’s code referencing AIs and vehicles in the game’s code. The code/idea may end up getting completely scrapped and never released.

That being said, this particular situation is interesting because, according leaker HYPEX, Epic is currently testing attachments/mods for vehicles in the game, which may be connected to this code in some way (although that may be reaching a bit).

Nevertheless, it’ll be interesting to see if anything comes out of this in the future, and with Season 6 right around the corner, it hopefully won’t be too much longer.
