First, the two Blanka & Sakura Cups each involve a different mode. The Android-specific one is a Zero Build Duos one. It will last for three hours on April 27, 2022. The second one is for every platform. Folks can take part in Battle Royale Duos matches during the three hour period on April 28, 2022. In each case, your total points will be earned across up to 10 matches. A Loading Screen will be the reward for taking part.

As for the Blanka and Sakura outfits, each one comes with accessories and an alternate style. In the case of Blanka, you get Blanka-chan Back Bling and a Tropical Hazard Kebab Pickaxe. Blanka-chan will build up electricity based on eliminations you carry out. You also get standard Blanka and a more formal Boman Delgado suit look. With Sakura, you get her main school uniform and gym uniform alt style. She also comes with a Fighting Tournament Trophy Pickaxe, a Hanakaze Claw Back Bling, and a Kayari Buta Glider.

This isn’t the first time Street Fighter characters showed up in Fortnite. The first crossover involved Chun-Li and Ryu. After that, Cammy and Guile joined the fight.

Fortnite is available on the Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PC, and Android devices, and the Street Fighter Blanka and Sakura outfits will appear on April 28, 2022. The first Blanka & Sakura Cup will appear on April 27, 2022 on mobile devices, and the second will appear everywhere on April 28, 2022.
