Fortnite has come a very long way since its initial release four years ago, in 2017. The game rose to alarming popularity and search interest around 2019, and has surprisingly been able to sustain a large amount of its viral fame, and this is, for the most part, due to the fact that the game’s developer, Epic Games, continues to collaborate with a vast variety of popular media, like video games (Borderlands, God of War), TV Shows (Green Arrow, Rick and Morty), movie franchises- including Marvel characters like Deadpool and Ant-man as well as DC heroes like Batman and Catwoman, and finally, even a virtual concert with Travis Scott and Kid Cudi’s song, The Scotts, first releasing on Fortnite, and not on any music streaming service! In this article, we will be talking about the prospect of seeing a My Hero Academia crossover event with Fortnite.
My Hero Academia is an extremely popular anime and manga series, often regarded as among the best of the best anime series ever made, so it would be quite logical for Epic Games to want to arrange a collaboration between Fortnite and My Hero Academia. There have been surveys surfacing online made by Epic Games which ask the user if they have heard of Fumikage Tokoyami, one of the main characters in My Hero Academia. Fans online have taken this as confirmation of the crossover event, but we wouldn’t be so quick to judge, seeing as these surveys are probably looking to establish focus groups among the Fortnite fanbase, rather than tease potential crossovers.
Having said that, keeping in mind the fact that Epic Games has already added Lexa, an anime-inspired skin to Fortnite. It could mark the beginning of a series of Fortnite and anime series collabs. If this were to happen, there is almost no doubt that My Hero Academia and Fortnite will hold a crossover event at some point this year or early 2022.
