Street Fighter's Ryu, Chun-Li, And Akuma Come To Brawlhalla
Ubisoft's free-to-play fighting game adds characters and other content from Street Fighter.
Street Fighter's most popular characters are crossing over with Ubisoft's free-to-play fighting game Brawlhalla. Ryu, Chun-Li, and Akuma from the Capcom series have arrived in Brawlhalla as part of the game's latest "epic crossovers" event.
In addition to the famous fighters, Brawlhalla has introduced a new mode called Street Brawl, which puts a Street Fighter spin on the game featuring health bars that Street Fighter fans will recognize. The mode also has new K.O. text inspired by Capcom's game and a new Satsui no Hado emote.
Brawlhalla also adds a new 1v1 map inspired by the Suzaku Castle from Street Fighter. There are also four new avatars based on Zangief, the Shadaloo symbol, and a Hadoken.
Here are the official descriptions for Ryu, Chun-Li, and Akuma, as written by Ubisoft:
- Ryu –Epic Crossover for Petra – Ryu is always trying to find the next strongest opponent to better himself. Many of his iconic techniques have been brought over to Brawlhalla, like the Tatsumaki Senpukyaku, Shoryuken, and Hadoken.
- Chun-Li –Epic Crossover for Wu Shang – The Strongest Woman in the World is sure to teach her opponents a thing or two about how to take a kick. She brings techniques of her own into Brawlhalla, like the Spinning Bird Kick and Kikosho.
- Akuma – Epic Crossover for Val – Focused on defeating the gods, the Master of the Fist is ready to make them truly tremble to pieces. He’ll achieve ultimate power with his Tatsumaki Zankukyaku and Zanku Hadoken techniques, among a few others.
Street Fighter is just the latest massive franchise to get a crossover event in Brawlhalla. Some of the previous Brawlhalla crossovers included various WWE superstars like The Rock and John Cena, as well as Lara Croft, Po from Kung Fu Panda, and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Characters from The Walking Dead came to Brawlhalla in September.
