Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid may have released back in 2019, but two years down the line it's still getting new content with a new pack coming on May 25. Oh, and that new content will see the game introducing a Street Fighter crossover, because why not?
Both Ryu and Chun-Li from the Street Fighter universe will be playable characters in a new pack, each with their own Power Rangers infused armour. The Street Fighter pack retails at $12.50, coming packed with Ryu in Crimson Hawk Ranger attire, Chun-Li with the Blue Phoenix Ranger outfit, and more skins to be revealed at a future date. Alternatively, each character can be purchased separately for $5.99.
Ryu has received his own trailer, and is said to have "his moves executed using classic, genre-defining input commands". Iconic moves such as Hadouken will return, so get practicing those combos if you want to show the other Power Rangers who's the boss.
"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."
For any kids at heart who ever imagined getting weird and wonderful crossovers such as this, there's never been a more perfect DLC for you. It's a strange collaboration, especially so far after its original release, but ultimately one that is highly welcomed. A physical version of the game with all post launch content is also confirmed to be coming in July known as the Super Edition, so keep an eye out for that if you're a collector.
