Hasbro have recently announced a partnership with Epic Games to bring Fortnite into the world of Monopoly, but that’s not where the rabbit hole ends.
I guess it is really Nerf or nothing – as Hasbro has announced not only that Fortnite will be given the Monopoly treatment but also will have its own lineup of Nerf blasters in Spring 2019.
This isn’t the first time Nerf have partnered with a game publisher to bring in-game weapons to the Nerf lineup – earlier this year it was announced that Blizzard Entertainment had struck a deal to bring Overwatch’s weapons into the Nerf family.
We don’t know the specific details of which weapons will be turned into Nerf blasters, but we know the lineup is planned to be released in Spring 2019.
We also know that Hasbro and Epic Games are planning on doing a full announcement of both the Fortnite Monopoly board and Fortnite Nerf Lineup on Tuesday, September 11, so stay tuned at FortniteINTEL for that.
Speaking to IGN, a Hasbro representative stated that the Fortnite nerf lineup “will immerse fans into the player-versus-player action of the game, letting them play out the Battle Royale in real-world settings with blasters and accessories that emulate the onscreen battles Fortnite is known for.”
