Fortnite Ryu Skin Could Be Coming in the Leaked Street Fighter V Crossover

Fortnite x Street Fighter 5 might be the next crossover in Season 5.

February 19, 2021

Recently, a massive leak from Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5 and Season 6 revealed some of the Epic Games’ biggest surprises for the players. While some early information from the leaks pointed out to the return of new Midas skins and Kevin the Cube to the game, a most recent rumor suggests that the next big crossover in Fortnite will bring Street Fighter 5 characters to the game, including the Fortnite Ryu skin.

As usual, the first details about an upcoming crossover in Fortnite can be obtained through the island’s portals, which are the gates of other dimensions that allow characters from various mediums and games enter the world of Fortnite. Recently, the Tron crossover event was leaked through a portal, and now one of newest portals of the game gives off Street Fighter vibes.

Thanks to ShiinaBR, we got our first look at the Skirmish Portal in Fortnite, which showcases a scene directly related to one of the classic entries of the Street Fighter series, accompanied by an score that sounds like the original soundtracks of the Street Fighter titles.

Ryu has always been one of the most beloved characters in the Street Fighter series, which means if a crossover takes place, the Fortnite Ryu skin will likely be available. However, it remains a mystery what other characters from the Street Fighter franchise will receive a unique Fortnite skin during the event.

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5 is currently live and players are in the Week 12 of the season. If you are looking for the XP coins of this week, make sure to check out our guide on the locations of all ten XP coins in Week 12.

Fortnite is now available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Nintendo Switch, Android, and PC. The game doesn’t receive any update on iOS devices as Apple has banned Epic Games from launching its products on App Store.
