Street Fighter's Ryu, Sakura head to Monster Hunter World

Monster Hunter: World is now available on Playstation 4 and Xbox One (in Europe and North America), with its release on PC coming later this year. PS4 players get first dips, and it'll be available to anyone who has save data from Street Fighter 5. Specifically, we're looking at Ryu and Sakura.

Hopeful monster hunters all across the globe have until June 30, 2018, to collect a staggering £50,000 bounty for genuine evidence of the world's most talked about beasts. The game launched for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on January 26 (the Xbox One version is only available in North America and Europe).

While Monster Hunter World sits firmly among some of the generation's best - it now has a 91 ranking on Metacritic across consoles - its Xbox One version has been plagued by online matchmaking issues, rendering one of its most important components useless while Capcom works to get it up and running again. Details are scarce right now, but a special event will be released in the near future so Xbox gamers can make their hunters look like Ryu as well.


The Capcom Unity blog post explains that Ryu and Sakura are full armor sets in-game - this means you won't be able to equip other items along with parts of the Ryu and Sakura sets. The game has received critical acclaim at launch and the sales seem to follow the same success with a reported shipment of 5 million copies worldwide across the PS4 and Xbox One. Completing this will unlock Street Fighter V Tickets, which can then be exchanged for a Ryu armour set from the Smithy.

The skins are free, but if you want to Hadoken or Shoryuken it'll cost $3.99 as a "premium gesture".
