Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid is getting a new crossover with the legendary brand Street Fighter! The Ryu and Chun-Li will be transformed into the Crimson Hawk Ranger and Blue Phoenix Ranger.
Announced by IGN, a Street Fighter DLC pack will come to the game. It will be able on PC, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Stadia on May 25 and it will be priced at $12.50 USD.
Both characters will have their unique design as a Power Ranger and I personally think that both of them look amazing!
Rose Silvestre from the nWay Community and Marketing team explained ”The entire 2D fighting genre can be traced back to Chun-Li and Ryu (among others) making such a splash in Street Fighter II. Tag fighters, in particular, owe a spiritual debt to the Capcom – Marvel crossovers of the 90s, X-Men vs. Street Fighter, and Marvel vs. Capcom. While Power Rangers in Battle for the Grid take the bulk of their inspiration from other mediums – the shows, movies, and comics – Ryu and Chun-Li have decades of classic fighting game appearances to draw from. They fit right in alongside the existing roster and mechanics, but they also work a bit differently, like their Street Fighter and crossover series styles. We thought of it a bit like how Ryu and Ken (and other guest characters, like Terry Bogard) were treated in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Ryu and Chun-Li follow some of their own rules where it makes sense to inject that Street Fighter feels. Aside from the sheer fact that they’re basically the king and queen of 2D fighting games, that’s what separates them from the rest of the roster.”
