A slideshow of an internal Epic presentation shows potential skins the company is trying to develop. Specifically, the documents reveal plans for Fortnite skins for characters like Samus Aran, Naruto, Katniss Everdeen, The Bride (from Kill Bill), Snake Plissken, John McClane, and more.
Today marks the first day of Epic Games’ and Apple’s anticompetitive lawsuit, and the documents were presented as part of Epic’s case against Apple. It would be interesting to see these characters added to the hugely popular Fortnite game.
The slides, Thanks to The edge, also reveal plans for future collaboration in Fortnite, including a basketball minigame and a LeBron Games skin intended to promote NBA and possibly the upcoming Space Jam: A New Legacy movie.
The presentation slides also feature characters already added to Fortnite as skins, such as Master Chief, Kratos, and Sarah Connor. So there is reason to believe that seeing Samus and the other characters mentioned above will be added to Fortnite.
It’s interesting to note that Samus is part of a plan to be added to Fortnite, given Nintendo’s iron grip on their IPs and their reluctance to let other companies use them.
But should Samus make her way into the Battle Royale game, it could mean that Fortnite content in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate could theoretically be possible, possibly as a Spirit Event, or maybe even as a fighter.
However, it’s possible that it was Epic Games who approached Nintendo, which the latter agreed to, so perhaps the idea of a Fortnite character in Smash Bros. never materialized.
Samus’ performance in Fortnite can also be used as a promotion for the upcoming Metroid Prime 4 game. We still don’t have any information on it except that Retro Studios is hard at work developing it, but fans are hoping to see it at E3 this year.
