More exciting details regarding potential Fortnite crossovers have surfaced.
Fortnite Battle Royale leakers across the industry have revealed some surprising potential crossovers today. One of the said leaks from earlier in the day centered around celebrities The Rock, Lady Gaga, Ariana Grande and Lebron James. The fun did not stop there as more information surfaced about other potential collaborations. The Bride from Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill film series, Samus Aran of Metroid and Naruto, are a few of the many additional characters that could appear in a future update.

It has not been an excellent day for Epic Games if they planned on keeping these details under wraps. Fortnite leaker iFireMonkey revealed some data that included accurate crossovers from the past and others that fans might see down the line.
One of which is Samus Aran from Nintendo’s Metroid series, who is the perfect candidate for a Fortnite appearance, especially considering the game’s crossover with Halo and God of War earlier this year. Samus made ESTNN’s list of Five Guest Characters We Need in Season 5, but obviously, that did not materialize. Epic Games was of that same thought process, meaning Samus might still be on tap.
A Naruto crossover could also come to fruition, given the recent influx of Anime characters in Fortnite Battle Royale. The others are movie characters like Snake Plissken of “Escape from New York” fame, John McClane of the “Die Hard” series, “The Hunger Games” Katniss Everdeen and The Bride, none of which are out of the realm of possibility. Fortnite’s recent collaborations with Terminator and Alien essentially paved the way for Epic to bring any series across television, video games and film into the equation.
None of these crossovers have an actual release date at this time. Epic may have scrapped some, and others could hit the Fortnite Item Shop in the future. We’ll have to wait and see where the leaks lead and if the developers have any plans to follow through with these unique ideas.
