Blanka and Sakura will be in Fortnite today, with a Rival Schools reference

At 8 p.m. ET tonight

Blanka and Sakura make an appearance in fortnite today, as one of many street fighter crossovers for the game. This is part of a series of crossovers, including Ryu and Chun-Li, who arrived together, and Guile and Cammy.

Both enter the fortnite shop tonight at 8 PM ET, amid an opportunity to unlock a loading screen (below) via the “Blanka and Sakura Cup.” In the bundle, Blanka comes with his Blanka-Chan back bling (he’s a small Blanka doll), the Blanka backflip emote, and the “Tropical Hazard Kebab Pickaxe,” along with various fruits that Blanka enjoys. But the greatest reference of all? Her “Blanka Delgado” outfit, which is a confirmed direct reference to Boman Delgado from Rival schools Fame. I’m just glad this game is remembered.

Sakura, meanwhile, will wear an alternate sports outfit “inspired by one of her.” Street Fighter IV alts,” in addition to a victory emote, Hanakaze Claw back bling, and Fighting Tournament Trophy pickaxe; as well as the Kayari Buta glider.

The Blanka and Sakura Cup “all platforms” is happening today on PC, Android, PlayStation, Xbox and Switch: you can participate in “up to 10 matches” today.
