The designs of Ryu and Chun-Li as Power Rangers, although surprising, are not new, since they already appeared in the mobile game Power Rangers: Legacy Wars. Mind you, his moves are new, taking some of the rules from Street Fighter to Power Rangers Battle for the Grid. In fact, they were inspired by how Super Smash Bros. Ultimate adapted fighting styles, controls and movements of Ryu and Ken to be in harmony with those of their own game.
This DLC is the result of a collaboration between nWay (developers of Battle for the Grid) and Capcom. nWay wanted to pay tribute to Street Fighter, the 2D fighting saga from which most subsequent games have drawn, including his own.
This is undoubtedly one of the Most unexpected Street Fighter crossovers, although recently also came out in Fortnite, including exclusive merchandising, with t-shirts and sweatshirts with the designs of Ryu and Chun-Li from the game.
