Do you like Street Fighter? What about Power Rangers? Get ready for this one, because it might just blow your mind.
A new crossover between Power Rangers Legacy Wars is bringing your favorite Street Fighter characters to the Power Rangers-branded mobile game where you can watch pairs of Rangers and fighters duke it out.
A partnership between Saban Brands, Lionsgate, Capcom, and nWay has made it possible to take characters like Ryu, Guile, Chun-Li, Akuma, Cammy, and M. Bison and have them brawl with Power Rangers personalities like Tommy Oliver, Jen Scotts, Andros, and various others.
The impressive roster of Street Fighter characters included in the crossover event will keep their fighter models, combos, animations, and abilities from Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, so they’ll look and play as authentically as possible. In fact, Capcom Japan took it upon themselves to oversee their integration into the game.
“Seeing Street Fighter characters duking it out with Power Rangers is truly new and magical,” said nWay CEO Taehoon Kim. “It’s never been done before and now we are making it happen in Power Rangers: Legacy Wars, proving the rising trend of competitive mobile gaming in the West.”
Capcom was likely extremely excited to see the two franchises coming together like this. Yoshinori Oni, executive producer at Capcom, called the collaboration a “dream.”
“The Rangers series that I also grew up watching as a kid have crossed overseas, became Power Rangers, and is now well received by all ages,” Oni said. “I can’t contain my excitement just thinking about the idea of our Street Fighter characters moving about in that world.”
The event begins today, so make sure you give it a whirl, especially if you’re a fan of either property—and you know that you are. Don’t lie.
