Following up the previous Fortnite x Street Fighter collab that first brought Ryu and Chun-Li into the game, Epic Games have announced that Cammy and Guile will be making their way to the battle island next.

Fortnite's dominance of bringing pop culture cosmetic sets to the gaming world continues. With The Suicide Squad's Bloodsport currently in the item shop and Ariana Grande taking center stage for the game's upcoming Rift Tour, Epic Games has locked in another major pop culture collab coming to Fortnite.

Iconic Street Fighter stars, Cammy and Guile, are set to officially drop in the Fortnite Item Shop on Aug. 7, 2021 at 8 p.m. ET.

While some, both in the Fortnite and Street Fighter communities, have already poked some fun at Guile's hair looking like everything from french fries to string cheese, there's no question that the American soldier is yet another iconic character worthy of a skin in the game.

As described by Epic Games, the Guile Outfit showcases the classic green fatigues he first wore in the original Street Fighter II, while a beach-ready Glistening Guile Variant and K.O. Back Bling are also up for grabs.

In addition, the deadly clone assassin turned MI6 operative is making her Fortnite debut with her classic Cammy Outfit. Players will also be able to equip the Borealis Backer Back Bling and Tactical Cammy Variant.

Rounding out the new Capcom set is the Cammy & Guile Gear Bundle, which includes Guile’s Knuckle Buster Pickaxe, Cammy’s Delta Red Bowie Blade Pickaxe and the OG Guile stage-inspired V-Trigger Vector Glider.

Epic Games has also announced that on Thursday, Aug. 5, there will be a special Cammy Cup duos tournament that gives top-placing players the opportunity to win the Cammy Outfit and Borealis Backer Back Bling before it hits the Item Shop.
