Every Fortnite update comes with an array of cosmetics and changes, but one of the main important aspects are the Portals that appear. Everyone knows these Portals signal that new characters will be embracing the Battle Royale very shortly. This time it seems a very unsuspecting crossover may appear, Street Fighter, with Ryu and Chun Li entering the fight.
For v15.40, two Portals appeared, and straight away, dataminers/leakers are hard at work decrypting these to tell the world of what will be coming. The two portals are named Skirmish and Kepler. However, not long ago, Skirmish was more or less decrypted with sound and images.

Of course, the images were not one image but dissected into multiple, but it was fairly obvious what the full picture was, a stage from Street Fighter, called Suzaku Castle, which is no other than Ryu's Stage. There's no evidence of Chun Li, though it's fairly obvious she would be the female, as both Ryu and Chun Li have been in the game since the very beginning.

With the care package that was sent to SquattingDog, there are five characters left unaccounted for, and one of the keywords was Handwraps. This could be more evidence that that keyword is targeting at Ryu.
It seems pretty clear-cut that Ryu and Chun Li will be coming to Fortnite, but this is one of the strangest crossovers in our opinion but is one of the most brilliant. This means that Epic could undoubtedly have anyone appearing in the Battle Royale; the scope is endless!
Now we have one of the Portals decrypted what; who could appear in the next one? If the information is accurate, we are expecting one male hunter? Any ideas?
