In a unique crossover event, Street Fighter’s Ryu will become a Power Ranger in mobile game Power Rangers: Legacy Wars.
He’ll be a playable character in the game which is growing in popularity on mobile devices. It also has a developing esports scene, with a celebrity exhibition match being played at Mobile Masters last month.
Production company Bat in the Sun has created a short film to introduce fans to the story of Ryu Ranger.
Ryu now has his own Crimson Hawk Power Coin, allowing him to morph into Ryu Ranger
‘After he and his friends were sucked into the Morphin Grid, Ryu was presented with his own Crimson Hawk Power Coin, allowing him to morph into the Ryu Ranger, and team up with the Power Rangers to take on the deadly duo of M. Bison and Rita Repulsa,’ says the creative team behind the game.
M. Bison is another Street Fighter character, while Rita Repulsa is a Power Rangers antagonist.
‘Combining his Crimson Hawk Power Coin with the power of Hado, Ryu Ranger’s Hadoken takes the shape of the hawk, lifting his opponents into the air, and his Tatsumaki uses the strength of a hawk’s wings to trap his opponents.’
A teaser for the short film was shown at San Diego Comic-Con by Jason David Frank, the Mighty Morphin Green Ranger. The full length film will be released later this year. Frank also played Legacy Wars with a few lucky fans at the Lionsgate booth.

There will be more Power Rangers: Legacy Wars tournaments at Comic-Con, with prizes including Razer phones and Power Rangers G Fuel shakers.
‘We’re excited to morph a key Street Fighter like Ryu into a mighty Ranger and to introduce him through an exciting new piece of video content as we continue to find innovative ways for gamers to enjoy Power Rangers: Legacy Wars,’ said Daniel Engelhardt, Senior Vice President of Interactive Ventures & Games at Lionsgate.
‘We’re also very proud to be working with great companies such as G Fuel and Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. on this unique collaboration that brings together fun gameplay, original storytelling, and direct fan engagement.’
