For all the hate that Epic Games' battle royale title, Fortnite, seems to get, one simply just cannot deny Epic's ingenious method of essentially converting the game into a pop-culture version of Nintendo's very own Smash Bros.
We've seen Epic try to one-up itself every season in the game, with Season 5 of Chapter 2 arguably its biggest yet.
From crossovers with the Aliens, Predator, Tron, and DC franchises, as well as so much more, it feels like we've seen everything and anything that we could think of in Fortnite. But, as it turns out, Epic is planning to outdo itself once again.
At least, if a recent leak is to be believed.
What Do The Fortnite Content Creator Questionnaire Leaks Contain?
The list, which comes in the form of a questionnaire, was reportedly sent to numerous content creators, apparently, in an attempt to gauge interest for future crossover events. Although no one has yet to step forward and confirm this, it's not exactly out of the question. Actually, it's smart for Epic to do this if it is indeed true.
With that said, the list of skins that Epic is gauging interesting is quite interesting, to say the least.
Here are all the proposed characters that could come to Fortnite if the leak is to be believed:
- Ethan Winters (Resident Evil)
- Jill Valentine (Resident Evil)
- Lady Dimitrescu (Resident Evil)
- Mega Man
- Ryu (Street Fighter)
- Sans (Undertale)
- CJ (Grand Theft Auto)
- Ratchet (Ratchet and Clank)
- Scorpion (Mortal Kombat)
- Bowser (Mario Bros)
- Vegeta (Dragon Ball Z)
- Aloy (Horizon Zero Dawn)
- Joker (Batman)
- Joker (Persona 5)
- Simon Belmont (Castlevania)
- Toad (Mario Bros)
- Alucard (Castlevania)
- Dante (Devil May Cry)
As you can see, there are some pretty odd choices on the list.
We suspect that Epic intentionally put some there to act as a decoy. But, of course, who's to say that Epic won't consider actually adding some of these out of left field suggestions if the survey actually comes back with substantial and useful information?
Then again, this is still an unconfirmed leak, so take the information with a grain of salt. After all, why would Epic include Ryu in a list like this if they'd already added him into the game?
With that said, multiple rumors are surrounding the addition of some of the characters on the said list. This includes Batman, who will be featured prominently in a collaboration between DC and Epic that sees the caped crusader traveling across multiple realities as part of a six-issue limited comic series.
So, who knows? Already, Epic has done the unthinkable in adding the Mandalorian, Terminator, Predator, Alien, and Masterchief all together in the game at the same time, so we might actually see a vampire-to-vampire face off with Lady Dimitrescu and Alucard being added into Fortnite.
