Teased from the start of the season and officially with a preview of Deku in the trailer, Fortnite x My Hero Academia will become a reality during the month of December 2022 on Fortnite. And the crossover obviously focuses the attention of fans of the Battle Royale but also of the manga. It's not the first time that Fortnite has teamed up with a famous shonen to offer skins, but the recipe has always worked. After Naruto and DBZ, the only thing missing is One Piece to complete Epic Games' hunting board.
It was while studying a Japanese advertisement that some of the most influential data miners on the planet began to speculate that the crossover would see the light of day on December 16, 2022 . A few days before the Christmas holidays.
A Japanese pub at the origin of the rumor
ShiinaBR, a famous datamining account in the small world of Fortnite, is based on an authenticated ad that appeared in Japan to assume that the Fortnite x My Hero Academia collab would be released this Friday, December 16, 2022. This is not the first time that a scan observed on a Japanese media leaks this type of information.
However, this date should always be taken with a grain of salt, because at the time of writing, Epic Games has still not revealed an official date for the collab.
An XXL collaboration
We already know that this partnership will go beyond the strict framework of cosmetics. As we saw in the trailer for the season, we should be able to use certain powers of the shonen heroes over the course of the games.
