Capcom and Epic Games continue to build a strong relationship, as the recent release of Street Fighter's Sakura and Blanka brings the tally up to seven characters from the Japanese developer that appear in Fortnite.

Previously, Chun-Li, Ryu, Cammy, and Guile from Street Fighter, and Jill Valentine from the Resident Evil series joined the battle royale.

To celebrate the release of the latest Capcom skins, Epic announced the upcoming Sakura & Blanka Cup, a Solos event that will have some exclusive rewards for top-performing players. Let's break down everything you need to know about the Fortnite Sakura & Blanka Cup.

Local times for each region will be displayed on the game's internal notification system, so be sure to log in constantly so you don't miss out on the action.

The event won't feature any cash prizes, instead, the top 25% of each region will be awarded an exclusive loading screen that pays homage to the iconic Street Fighter II mini-game in which players wreck a Lexus LS400.

So there you have it, time to put your skills to the test and show off your rewards if you manage to get a high standing. Remember that this event is open to players on all devices, so there's no need to worry about which platforms are eligible.
