The special event will also usher in new a mode and map to explore.
Equipped with their classic moves, the three Street Fighter legends will substitute Petra, Wu Shang, and Val, respectively. This means players will be able to use Ryu’s Hadoken, Shoryuken, and Tatsumaki Senpukyaku; Chun-Li’s Spinning Bird Kick and Kikosho; and Akuma’s Tatsumaki Zankukyaku and Zanku Hadoken. They will also carry with them custom KO effects with VO lines never seen before.

Aside from epic Street Fighter characters, the crossover will also bring elements taken after the Japanese competitive fighting video game to let players experience Brawlhalla in Street Fighter lens. During the special event, Street Brawl will be available as a special mode that will pit two players in an eight-minute match. It employs a best-of-three structure, so players need to raise for the first three KOs. The brawls can happen in a new map inspired by Ryu’s home stage, Suzaku Castle.
The crossover is also teeming with Street Fighter special effects to clinch such as emotes, victory poses, and a podium. All of which will remain available for purchase even after the event. Here are the full details of the Brawlhalla 6.01 patch.
