Released on March 23, 2017, Power Rangers: Legacy Wars continues to be a success, offering players the ability to create teams from a massive roster of heroes and villains from a franchise that is celebrating its 25th anniversary. Now, you can add iconic Street Fighter characters such as Ryu, Chun-Li, Guile, and even Akuma to the mix.
The developer of the mobile game nWay has ensured the current crossover stays “true to the series’ look and feel by incorporating the actual models, animations, combos and abilities from Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition.”
Fans will be glad to know Capcom Japan “directly oversaw this effort by providing key insight into adding faithful versions of the following characters and example move-sets into the game.”
The accessible characters and their moves include:
- Ryu – Shoryuken, Hadoken and Tatsumaki Senpukyaku
- Chun-Li – Spinning Bird Kick, Kikoken and Hyakuretsukyaku
- Guile – Sonic Boom, Flash Kick and Sonic Cross
- Akuma – Gohadoken, Goshoryuken and Zanku Hadoken
Cammy will be added to Power Rangers: Legacy Wars on June 1, 2018. She will be followed by the debut of longtime series villain M. Bison on June 15, 2018. Both characters’ move-sets will be announced later.
Take note that each of the new characters can be used for free while playing the limited time challenges. Also, players can immediately and permanently unlock each Street Fighter character via in-app purchase starting at $4.99 USD. The characters can also be unlocked by opening in-game Morph Boxes and collecting character shards.
“This incredible Street Fighter and Power Rangers crossover shows how the competitive mobile gaming scene is thriving and attracting massive confidence from legendary video game companies and their passionate fanbases,” said Taehoon Kim, CEO of nWay. “Seeing Street Fighter characters duking it out with Power Rangers is truly new and magical. 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.”

“The collaboration between Power Rangers and Street Fighter feels like a dream to me,” said Yoshinori Ono, executive producer at Capcom. “The Rangers series that I also grew up watching as a kid has crossed overseas, became Power Rangers and is now well received by all ages. I can’t contain my excitement just thinking about the idea of our Street Fighter characters moving about in that world.”
