Street Fighter’s Ryu, Chun-Li and Akuma Join Ubisoft’s Brawlhalla

Street Fighter veterans Ryu and Chun-Li relatively fresh from cameos in Fortnite and two Power Rangers fighting games, coming to Ubisoft’s version of the Super Smash Bros. formula, the free-to-play platform fighter brawlhalla. Akuma is coming to brawlhalla also as a playable fighter, but the real news comes in the massive reduction of the “Ryu number” of dozens of video game characters and painter Bob Ross. (I will explain.)

The Ryu song is the best video game equivalent for the Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon challenge. The number tells you how far Ryu is from another character in a video game, by determining whether Ryu punched a character in a video game and whether that person subsequently punched another character (or interacted with them in some other form) ) in a separate game. Given Ryu’s wide range of video game appearances, particularly in crossover dishes such as Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Fortnite, Project X-Zone, and the Marvel vs. Capcom games, you can connect Ryu with almost anyone.

In an extreme example, Ryu Number mathematicians have associated Ryu with Disco Elysium‘s Kim Kitsuragi, thanks to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Mario‘s Time Machine, and Civilization 5.

Ryu itself has a Ryu number 0, while Chun-Li has a Ryu number 1. And thanks to the appearance of Ryu, Chun-Li and Akuma in brawlhalla, a whole new world of low integer Ryu Numbering capabilities awaits.

See, brawlhalla is basically Ubisoft’s version of Super Smash Bros. Officially released in 2017, the platform fighter features dozens of original characters (and Ubisoft’s own Rayman), as well as crossover appearances for its roster of Legends, including the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Tomb Raider’s Lara Croft, Shovel Knight, and WWE’s The Rock and John Cena . It’s that TMNT connection that brings Ryu closer to Bob Ross, as the Turtles have also appeared in Hi-Rez Studios’ MOBA To beat next to the famous gentle painter.

brawlhalla also has Crossover skins from Adventure Time and Steven Universe, some of whom will also appear in the Warner Bros. crossover brawler from next year MultiVersus. That means Arya Stark is out Game of Thrones will soon have a Ryu number of only 2.

Until that time, brawlhalla fans can enjoy seeing Ryu, Chun-Li and Akuma in their fighting game of choice. The arrival of the Street Fighters coincides with an in-game event featuring a new mode called Street Brawl, which takes over Street Fighter’s health bars and adds other aesthetic effects inspired by Capcom’s fighting game franchise. brawlhalla is available on Android, iOS, Mac, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and Xbox One.
