The Power Rangers have teamed up with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on TV, and the Justice League in comic books, but they’ve never seen a battle like this!
Characters from Capcom’s Street Fighter are coming to Power Rangers: Legacy Wars, the hit mobile fighting game produced by nWay!
Power Rangers: Legacy Wars is a multiplayer fighting game which features heroes and villains from the long-running Power Rangers TV series, in combination with those from Lionsgate’s action-packed feature film. For the first time ever, the game will be adding playable characters based on a franchise outside of Power Rangers.
Four Street Fighter characters will initially join the battle: Ryu, Chun-Li, Guile, and Akuma. Fans can unlock the characters in-game beginning Thursday, May 16, 2018 either through limited-time challenges, Morph Box unlocks, or purchasing them outright at $4.99 per character.
“The collaboration between Power Rangers and Street Fighter feels like a dream to me. 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. I can’t contain my excitement just thinking about the idea of our Street Fighter characters moving about in that world.” – Yoshinori Ono, Capcom Executive Producer
Check out profiles for each of the game’s newest fighters below!
Ryu is a fighter. He continues his training in search of true strength. He is very polite and sincere. He travels the world, seeking opponents who can give him a challenge. He is also working to control the Satsui no Hado that resides within him. He seeks not to suppress it, but rather accept it.
Ryu will be a part of the game’s Balanced class, with Common rarity. His moveset will consist of a Hadoken, Jodan Sanrengeki, Shoryuken, and Sokuto.
Chun-Li is an Interpol office best known for her kicks. She became a detective at the age of 18 to search for her missing father. Upon learning that Shadaloo was involved with her father’s disappearance, she vowed to bring down the criminal organization. She is unforgiving towards acts of evil, but treasures her friendships with others.
Chun-Li will be a part of the game’s Balanced class, with Epic rarity. Her moveset will consist of a Spinning Bird Kick, Tsuitotsuken, Hyakuretsu, and Kikoken.
Though calm and collected on the outside, Guile is a hot-blooded guy. He’s cool in both looks and speech, and is a hard-boiled character. He fights for American peace. He has vowed to take down Shadaloo, not only for being an evil organization that threatens world peace, but also for revenge for his best friend Nash. Guile prefers to solve his own problems by himself.
Guile will be a part of the game’s Defender class, with Rare rarity. His moveset will consist of a Somersault Kick, Bullet Revolver, Sonic Blade, and Sonic Boom.
Akuma has defeated numerous fighters since surrendering his will to the Satsui no Hadou. The Satsui no Hadou has tempered his body and granted him superhuman strength. He has no intention of abandoning his path of violence, even going as far as defeating his own brother Gouken. He desires only to find an opponent who can give him the ultimate fight to the death.
Akuma will be a part of the game’s Attacker class, with Legendary rarity. His moveset will consist of a Gohadoken, Kongoken Combo, Goshoryuken, and Zanku Hadoken.
Additional characters, including Cammy and M. Bison, will be released on June 1.
