Street Fighters’ Blanka and Sakura Touch Down in Fortnite - Compete in the Blanka & Sakura Cup!

By The Fortnite Team

Today’s training regimen: 100 laps around Sanctuary, 500 sprints, 500 mantles. 


Taking a break from the crane game, World Warriors Blanka and Sakura are soon reaching for victory on the Fortnite Island! To celebrate 35 years of Street Fighter, you’ll be able to grab their Outfits and accessories in the Item Shop later this week (starting Thursday, April 28, at 8 PM ET). Also, show off your strength in the Blanka & Sakura Cup for a chance to earn a special Loading Screen.

Seeing him in action is no joke. Unleash the beast with the Blanka Outfit, which comes with the Blanka Delgado alt Style inspired by Rival Schools’ Boman Delgado. Celebrating a K.O. elimination? Break out the Outfit’s built-in Blanka Backflip Emote

Included with the Blanka Outfit is the Blanka-Chan Back Bling. Don’t step on it — the more eliminations you get in a match, the more electrified it gets. And the preferred snack of electrified warriors everywhere, the Tropical Hazard Kebab Pickaxe will also be available.

After Ryu set foot on the Island, it was only a matter of time before Sakura followed. Prove you’re as strong as Ryu with the Sakura Outfit, which comes with the Sakura Gym alt Style inspired by one of her Street Fighter IV alts. Already sure of your victory? Activate the Outfit’s built-in Sakura's Victory Sway Emote.

A reminder of home, the Sakura Outfit includes the Hanakaze Claw Back Bling. For those extra confident of their victory, flaunt the Fighting Tournament Trophy Pickaxe. Additionally, keep the pests away with the Kayari Buta Glider.
