Street Fighter V's Ryu and Sakura Coming To Monster Hunter: World

Capcom has announced that Street Fighter V outfits (Ryu and Sakura) are coming to Monster Hunter: World. This announcement comes soon after Capcom revealed plans for a crossover between franchises Monster Hunter and Street Fighter, such as bringing Rathalos, Zinogre, and Kirin Monster Hunter armor for Ken, R. Mika, and Ibuki in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition.

As detailed on the Capcom Unity blog, these Street Fighter V-themed armor sets in Monster Hunter: World can't be mixed with other armor pieces. Both sets of armor can be equipped by both male and female hunters, and you can even change your character's voice to match Ryu's or Sakura's.

For players with a Street Fighter V save file on their PS4, they will be able to obtain Ryu's set early. A special quest will appear for them, called "Down the Dark, Muddy Path" in Monster Hunter: World, which will guide them towards obtaining the set. As for everyone else, these armor sets can be obtainable through two new event quests which will be in rotation soon on both PS4 and Xbox One.

Several premium gestures and chat stamp sets are also on their way. You can find the details and pricing of each below.

  • Guild Card: Bonus Stage (Free)
  • Achievements: Rival, Destined, Living Legend and Bandana Girl (Free)
  • Pose: Shoryuken & Hadoken (Free)
  • Gesture: Street Fighter V Hadoken ($3.99)
  • Gesture: Street Fighter V Shoryuken ($3.99)
  • Stamp Set: Street Fighter V Set - ($1.99)

Ryu's costume will be available in "a few weeks" for PS4 players with a Street Fighter V save file. No other release timeframes have been announced just yet.
