Street Fighter characters Ryu, Chun-Li, Cammy and Guile have already joined Fortnite, but now they have company. Boxing legends Blanka and Sakura enter the ring - I mean, the item shop on April 29th at 09:00 ET (14:00 BST / 15:00 CEST). But before that, you can prove your skills in the Blanka & Sakura Cup, and show that you're worthy to wield these champions!

Two versions of the Blanka & Sakura Cup await you! The first version will take place on April 27, and will be a zero build solo tournament for mobile only. The second version will then take place on April 28 and will be a "battle royale" solo tournament for all platforms. In both versions, the top 25% of players in each region will unlock the bonus level loading screen.
