Whether it’s Marvel in Chapter 2 Season 4 (and beyond), or the dozens of other amazing collaborations from Alien to Star Wars in Season 5, it’s hard to actually think what section of pop culture Fortnite hasn’t tried to add.
The one huge genre missing off their collaboration list is anime, and Epic might be looking to out-do themselves by getting the heavyweights on board right from the start.
Dexerto says “According to Fortnite dataminer Twea, the giant developer behind Fortnite has penned a deal with Shueisha. The Japanese publishing giant is known for producing the iconic Shonen Jump magazine, and is a part-owner of western manga distributor Viz Media.
This opens up Fortnite to a huge catalogue of titles ranging from Demon Slayer to Naruto, Jujutsu Kaisen to Dragon Ball, My Hero Academia to Hunter x Hunter, and so much more.”
If the collaboration is to be true, then there are so many possibilities for future Fortnite collaborations in the anime space.
“It comes after Epic’s recent collaboration with DC Comics to publish a crossover comic book series featuring Batman venturing across the Zero Point. The potential for a collaboration on a similar scale with Shueisha is certainly there.”
Twea did not provide any other details regarding what titles will exactly be involved in the deal, or when players can expect a look. With Season 7 expected to finish sometime in/near September, there could still be a wait for anime to truly take over Fortnite.
But, if you ever wanted to drop onto the Island as Tanjiro, Goku, or Naruto, you might not have a much longer wait.
Dexerto says “xQc has always been a lone wolf in many ways. Generally, he likes to stream on his own rather than collaborating with other streamers. And when he does collaborate with them, it leads to drama more often than not. For example, he clashed with streamers like Pokelawls and Myth on the OfflineTV Rust server before quitting. Then, when he moved onto GTA RP, he got banned multiple times following clashes with other streamers like MOONMOON before moving on. Heck, he even rage-quit from a Monopoly game. But interestingly enough, butting heads with other streamers isn’t the reason why he’s now “done” with collaborations. It turns out that something else bothers him much
It’s very easy to say that GTA 6 has become one of the most-anticipated games of all time. Despite Rockstar remaining mum on all things rumors and leaks, some of which seem more credible than others, some employees may have let GTA news slip through the cracks. “Primarily, a couple of employees known for their work on Grand Theft Auto games made headlines in recent weeks after some of their social media posts surfaced, appearing to hint at the next Grand Theft Auto title.” GTA 6 clues on social media Notably, Soundtrack Manager and Music Supervisor Tony Mesones shared a photo of Miami to
Joining Call of Duty in an effort to add some suspicion to proceedings, Fortnite is allegedly due to get an Among Us style mode. Initially released in June 2018, the indie hit from developers InnerSloth experienced an immense boom in popularity in 2020 as streamers from across the globe flocked to it. Some streamers have bailed on the party game, but there are plenty still playing it on a regular basis. Among Us had a crossover with Fall Guys in March of 2021, but it now it looks like Fortnite will also link up with the game. When is Among
