Ryu explodes a giant banana man with a Hadoken in Fortnite's new Season 6 cinematic trailer

Insert banana split or smoothie joke here

Fortnite may someday rival the likes of Super Smash Bros. for the number of crossovers packed into one game, and there's one character so far who can say he's been a part of both.

Epic Games dropped the Season 6 cinematic trailer for the massive battle royale title this morning which includes scenes with many of its newest skins / promotions like Xenomorphs, Terminators and of course, Ryu from Street Fighter.

We previously got to see both Ryu and Chun-Li make the jump into the different genre of multiplayer game in a previous reveal trailer for the crossover, and they received brief cameos here too.

After being saved by the likes of Amanda Ripley, Sarah Connor and Kratos, Agent Jones runs past Chun, who's in the middle of giving some dude the good ol' Lightning Legs, before he comes across his friend Peely, the banana man.

Unfortunately for the fruit for a face, Ryu tosses a Hadoken at Peely which makes him instantly explode into a pile of goop that covers a now horrified agent.

If you listen closely, the classic 'you win' sound effect from Street Fighter 2 can be heard afterwards as Ryu strikes his win pose, but that victory doesn't last long considering he immediately gets blasted by a missile himself.

His fate is left unknown, but the pieces of banana peel remain lying on the ground as a grim reminder of the fragility of those not trained in the ways of martial arts.

Jones appears to succeed in his initial mission to try and fix the Zero Point by releasing The Foundation where he makes an ominous-sounding promise.

Fortnite Chapter 2: Season 6 is now available to players which comes packing a new map and another crossover skin for Lara Croft from Tomb Raider. You can check out Ryu ruining this banana's day below.
