The most recent information that is come out of the hearsay mill is, maybe unsurprisingly, that Fortnite is getting new characters from standard films and TV. Whereas this will not be an enormous shock to anybody (that is Fortnite’s entire factor, in any case), it is all right down to a deal between Epic and Paramount, the latter of which owns a ton of properties.
The information comes from Nick Baker of XboxEra, who stated the next on their newest livestreamed podcast (you’ll be able to watch the timestamped video under for the complete dialogue):
“I have been instructed that apparently Paramount has signed a take care of Epic to deliver properties to Fortnite. The primary one which I had heard about was the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles […] In the event that they’ve performed the take care of Fortnite, it clearly opens the door. So, for instance, we have two Venoms, like, three Spider-Males […] We have already received [Master] Chief, so will we get Halo TV Chief?”
The deal is, in keeping with Baker, for a number of properties owned by Paramount, which — as you’ll be able to think about — features a honest variety of well-known characters. Baker himself listed a few issues he’d like to see in Fortnite, like Star Trek, South Park, and, er, Peppa Pig. We might additionally wish to suggest Titanic and Frasier, please.
For now, although, the one “semi-confirmed” Fortnite characters are the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. “That was the one I care about most,” he stated, earlier than happening to think about a few of the emotes that will be bundled with the characters. Pizza celebration emote, anybody?
As for confirmed TMNT stuff, we have Shredder’s Revenge coming to Swap a while this 12 months. 2022 is about to be very cowabunga.
