As you know that Fortnite has taken a lot of characters from movies such as Marvel to Star Wars. And now, for you who are anime lovers, you will be more happy to enjoy playing Fortnite because it seems that this game will take anime characters.
Epic Collaboration with Shueisha
As cited from Dexerto, according to Fortnite dataminer Twea, the developer behind Fortnite has penned a deal with Shueisha. This is a Japanese publishing giant which is popular for producing the iconic Shonen Jump magazine. This is also a part-owner of western manga distributor Viz Media.
There are a lot of popular manga characters which range from Demon Slayer to Naruto, Jujutsu Kaisen to Dragon Ball, My Hero Academia to Hunter X Hunter and many more. If the collaboration is true, you may wonder which manga characters will be in Fortnite because the options are so many.
Here is the tweet posted by Twea – Fortnite Dataminer @TweaBR about this collaboration which was posted on June 30th, 2021.
“A trusted source has stated that Epic is working with a company named Shueisha to produce a few anime collabs. The company has partial rights to many large anime including Naruto and Dragon Ball.”
It happens after the recent collaboration of Epic with DC Comics to publish a crossover comic book series which features Batman venturing across the Zero Point as explained in Dexerto. There is the chance to collaborate with Shueisha on the same scale. However, Twea did not give further details about the titles that will be involved in the deal. And even there is no further information about when players are able to expect a first look.
As Season 7 will end in September, so it seems that you have to be more patient because you may have to wait for anime to really take over Fortnite.
The Possible Anime Characters to Appear in Fortnite
Imagine that anime characters that you usually watch in movies, series or manga, then they appear in Fortnite as skins and you can make them your favorite characters to use. If there are skins like Goku, Luffy, Deku, Naruto and other manga characters, it may be interesting. Even anime lovers who have never played Fortnite before may start to play it because they know that their favorite characters are there.
If the manga characters truly come to Fortnite, it will be interesting when you see what they look like. According to Gemerant, it is possible that they will be tweaked to match the base art style of Fortnite. However, it is also possible that they will have a cartoony, animated look. As explained above, there is no further information about which anime and which characters that will come to Fortnite. Just wait for it while enjoying the challenges in season 7.
