Some of Street Fighter 5's world warriors are joining the Power Rangers in combat. Yes, you read that correctly.

Power Rangers: Legacy Wars will see the addition of six characters from Street Fighter, with each donning their Street Fighter 5 designs. Ryu, Akuma, M. Bison, Cammy, Guile, and Chun-Li, will become available as playable characters starting today.

If you're unfamiliar with Power Rangers: Legacy Wars, this mobile title is an online tag team-based fighting game featuring numerous characters from the Power Rangers series.

From the Rangers themselves to classic villains, you can choose between fighters with various classes including Attacker, Defender, and Balanced spanning across series such as Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Power Rangers Zeo, Power Rangers Turbo, Power Rangers in Space, Power Rangers Dino Charge, Power Rangers Samurai, and more.

Players are prompted to select a main character with two supporting fighters -- who get called into battle like assists in the Marvel vs. Capcom series or Dragon Ball FighterZ. Each character's move set is based on color-coded cards that feature a different type of attack and operate in the Rock-Paper-Scissors format.

Power Rangers: Legacy Warriors is free to download and uses in-app purchases. You can find the release schedule and move sets for each Street Fighter character below.

Street Fighter executive producer Yoshinori Ono had this to say about the crossover:

"The collaboration between Power Rangers and Street Fighter feels like a dream to me. The Rangers series that I also grew up watching as a kid have crossed overseas, became Power Rangers, and is now well received by all ages. I can’t contain my excitement just thinking about the idea of our Street Fighter characters moving about in that world."
