Fortnite could add teenage mutant ninja turtles
If a recent leak is to be believed, Epic Games struck a deal with Paramount to bring the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to Fortnite later this year.
FortniteThe next batch of guest characters could include the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Epic’s massively successful online multiplayer battle royale title has seen many guest appearances in games, comics, television, and movies over the years, from Star Wars’ resident bounty hunter Boba Fett at Marvel Comics’ friendly Spider-Man neighborhood. The most recent wave of Fortnite cross-content consisted of skins from the hit Netflix series Cobra Kai, which aired its fourth season on December 31.
Meanwhile, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have always been a powerhouse when it comes to related video games, and recent years have been no exception. Characters like Leonardo, Donatello, and April O’Neal were among the many icons of ’90s children’s shows featured in Nickelodeon Star Brawl when it launches in October, and the heroes who munch on pizza in a half-shell are set to return to their side-scrolling beat-em-up roots in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge Later this year. Before that, it looks like the team of wicked, green teenagers of Leo, Donnie, Mikey and Raph could be partying on Fortnite if we are to believe a recent leak.
Shepshal Nick from XboxEra podcast (via The player) recently shared some intriguing insider information which suggests that Paramount (the current owner of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise) has made a deal with Epic Games to bring some of its characters into Fortnite. The first wave of these characters would be the turtles themselves, but Nick also speculated that since he was first informed of this news while discussing the upcoming live-action Halo on Paramount +, it is possible that a new version of Master Chief is coming to Fortnite also.
Fortnite recently launched Chapter 3 in December, which added the aforementioned Spider-Man to the island alongside Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s The Foundation and a treasure trove of new features and a completely reworked game map. Recent leaks suggest that Epic could add a “No Build” mode to Fortnite in 2022, which will eliminate the game’s famous base building mechanics and give players a more traditional battle royale experience. In the meantime, players have discovered Easter eggs that suggest other Marvel characters are joining in the fun in Fortnite, including the X-Men and Spider-Man’s infamous nemesis, the Green Goblin.
While Paramount’s supposed deal with Epic Games to allow its characters to be included as guest characters has yet to be officially confirmed, the fun and high-flying game Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles would definitely be a good choice for the wacky and colorful world of Fortnite. Even apart from the brothers themselves, the TMNT The franchise is home to many great characters that Epic could tap into for new playables Fortnite skins, from old fan favorites like Casey Jones and The Shredder to contemporary faces like Alopex and Jennika. Of course, fans will have to wait for more news from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles appearing in Fortnite, but with Revenge of the Crusher launch later this year, the timing couldn’t be better.
