Ubisoft's free-to-play brawler has had some notable IP crossovers in recent months, and today's update brings a few classic characters from Capcom's Street Fighter series. Ryu, Chun-Li and Akuma are all joining in, along with a tweaked mode, new stage and more.

Below is some of the official PR blurb.

Their arrival hurricane-kicks off an in-game event featuring a new game mode called Street Brawl; players will fight Street Fighter-style with health bars to show who will be the first to fall in the 2-D fighter setting. Plus, a new K.O. Effect featuring the iconic, Street Fighter-inspired K.O. text will be available along with a new Podium and Satsui no Hado Emote, so players can claim that perfect finish. A new 1v1 map based on Suzaku Castle has also been added, as well as four new avatars featuring Zangief, the Shadaloo symbol, a Hadoken, and an animated avatar showing a quarter circle forward punch.

Bask in the glory and adoration of these Street Fighter Crossovers:

- Ryu – Epic Crossover for Petra – Ryu is always trying to find the next strongest opponent to better himself. Many of his iconic techniques have been brought over to Brawlhalla, like the Tatsumaki Senpukyaku, Shoryuken, and Hadoken.
- Chun-Li – Epic Crossover for Wu Shang – The Strongest Woman in the World is sure to teach her opponents a thing or two about how to take a kick. She brings techniques of her own into Brawlhalla, like the Spinning Bird Kick and Kikosho.
- Akuma – Epic Crossover for Val – Focused on defeating the gods, the Master of the Fist is ready to make them truly tremble to pieces. He’ll achieve ultimate power with his Tatsumaki Zankukyaku and Zanku Hadoken techniques, among a few others.

This follows a Walking Dead crossover in September, while Brawlhalla has also featured fighters from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Kung Fu Panda and Hellboy amongst others.

The update to kick-off the Street Fighter tie-in has also added some remixed modes along with other fixes and balancing tweaks, with the full details at the link below.
