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.
Fortnite Sakura & Blanka Cup - Schedule
The Fortnite and Sakura Cup will take place on 28th April. There is no hard, universal start time for the Sakura Cup, as it will vary by region and timezone.
- Fortnite - How to throw cabbage 100 or more meters in one toss

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.
Fortnite Sakura & Blanka Cup - Format
Once the event starts, players will be able to queue for up to 10 matches. They'll have roughly three hours to complete all their matches.

Fortnite Sakura & Blanka Cup - Prizes
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.
