‘Fortnite,’ ‘My Hero Academia’ unite
Before the weekend last week, Epic Games unveiled the newest collaboration between the popular online video game and the popular Japanese manga series.
“Four mighty Heroes from the world of My Hero Academia, the beloved anime franchise, make their debut in Fortnite on December 16, 2022, at 7 AM ET. But before we get into that, go through Hero training yourself!” Epic Games said in its official release
The collaboration starts with four purchasable skins of some of the fans’ favorite characters from “My Hero Academia.”
The first skin is the manga series’ main protagonist, Deku. The second skin is Deku’s mentor, All Might.
Deku’s most notable classmates are the two other skins, love interest Ochako Uraraka and rival Katsuku Bakugo.
Gamers can purchase each skin individually with accompanying back bling or via two bundles.
The first bundle is for All Might. It includes a back bling, a pickaxe, and two emotes. The second bundle, meanwhile, features all three U.A. High School students and their respective back blings.
Developed by Epic Games, “Fortnite” is an online video game launched in 2017. It is playable in three different game mode versions that share the same general gameplay and game engine. The first is “Fortnite Battle Royale,” a free-to-play battle royale game where up to 100 players fight to be the last person standing.
Then, there is “Fortnite: Save the World,” a cooperative hybrid tower defense-shooter and survival game where up to four players battle zombie-like creatures, and defend objects with traps and fortifications they can build. The third is “Fortnite Creative,” where players are granted complete freedom to create their words and battle arenas.
“My Hero Academia” is a Japanese superhero manga series from the writing and illustration of Kōhei Horikoshi. It has been serialized in Shueisha’s shōnen manga magazine “Weekly Shōnen Jump” since July 2014, with its chapters additionally collected into 36 tankōbon volumes as of October 2022.
