Garena has added a couple of world-renowned warriors into its mobile battle royale with the Free Fire Street Fighter collaboration.
This will be Chun-Li and Ryu’s second-ever appearance in a battle royale genre after debuting in Fortnite.
As gaming giants in their own genres, the partnership is line with Garena’s strategy to create fresh gaming experiences for its player base with world-class brands.
“It is a franchise many of us grew up with, playing as its iconic characters like Ryu and Chun-Li,” said Free Fire producer Harold Teo. “Bringing a part of Street Fighter into Free Fire and welcoming Ryu and Chun-Li to Bermuda is something our players will enjoy.”
What to expect from the Free Fire Street Fighter collaboration
The Free Fire Street Fighter collaboration will feature Chun-Li and Ryu as either playable characters or skins of existing FF characters.
From the promotional photo, it looks like Chun-Li and Ryu have a connection to high-school sprinter Kelly and martial artist Kla.
The SF duo will also bring plenty of exclusive content and experiences to the game. Fans can expect a full interface reskins, new activities, and a plethora of themed collectibles.
The Free Fire Street Fighter collaboration will go live in July 2021.
