In a new crossover that must surely have been concocted in a ’90s kid’s dreams at some point, Power Rangers: Battle For The Grid is teaming up with Street Fighter for a new DLC pack.
nWay has announced that Capcom’s fan-favourite franchise is being treated to a ‘Street Fighter Pack’, and has also unveiled a Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid – Super Edition release which we’ll get on to in just a minute. Street Fighter stars Ryu and Chun-Li will be morphing into Power Rangers as part of the new collab, with more characters to be announced.
“Lord Zedd has weakened the Morphin Grid and is starting to break down the walls between realities. Ryu finds himself transported to the world of the Rangers where he acquires a Power Coin and takes on the mantle of the Crimson Hawk Ranger.
“Ryu brings to the battle his trademark stoic, reserved poise and a lifetime of Shotokan training. His fluid, almost water-like fighting style is deadly at both range and up close, with his moves executed using classic, genre-defining input commands. Keep opponents on their toes from a distance with classic Hadouken, or punish aggressive play up close with his Tastumaki Senpukyaku or iconic Shoryuken.”
The Street Fighter Pack will launch on 25th May for $12.50, or you can choose to pick up each character separately for $5.99 each. If you go for the Street Fighter Pack, you’ll get the following:
Street Fighter Pack:
– Ryu, Crimson Hawk Ranger
– Chun-Li, Blue Phoenix Ranger
– Exclusive skins to be revealed at a later date!
The aforementioned Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid – Super Edition is a collection of all the game’s DLC released so far, and will also include the Street Fighter Pack that’s been revealed today. It’ll also feature some “exclusive items available only in this very special edition” and will launch on that same day – 25th May – for $49.99.
It’ll arrive digitally at first, although a physical edition is also planned to hit stores in July. Those who already own the base game will have the option to upgrade to the Super Edition when the time comes.
Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid – Super Edition will contain:
– The base Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid game- Season One Pass- Season Two Pass- Season Three Pass
– Street Fighter Pack
– 4 Bonus Character Skins
