Power Ranger fans are going to lose their minds with this announceement as a crossover with Street Fighter has been announced for the Power Rangers Legacy Wars mobile game. That's right, if you ever wanted to see the Power Rangers go head to head against your favorite Street Fighter characters, now is your chance.
