The new Naruto Run emote, known as ‘Full Tilt’ in-game, has led this Reddit user to create a video that blends together both the Sonic the Hedgehog movie and Fortnite.
In a surprising move, Epic Games decided to add their own spin on the pop culture favorite Naruto Run into Fortnite as an emote.
This was largely overshadowed by the Batman event but fans still shared their appreciation for the emote. There are not many games out there that feature a Naruto running Batman, that’s for sure.
Reddit user williambash created a video that took the Sonic the Hedgehog movie trailer and mashed it together with Fortnite for great effect.
The Sonic trailer was much-maligned for its poor animation, particularly the way Sonic looked, but luckily we don’t have to worry about that as Fortnite is the main draw here.
The Naruto Run allows Fortnite players to run to their heart’s desire, which is why William felt like this was his chance to recreate the Sonic trailer.
He put his character in a blue Ninja skin to help viewers draw the comparison to Sonic and pretty much recreated the whole trailer in Fortnite.
“Gotta go fast,” showed up but it wasn’t anywhere as bad as the horrid Sonic trailer.
In fact, that trailer was so negatively received by fans, the film’s producers decided to rework Sonic altogether and while he won’t be receiving a Fortnite-style animation, it could really only go up from where it was.
If you want to compare the two trailers side-by-side, you can do so by checking out the official trailer below. For what it’s worth, they do come pretty close.
In fact, some would even argue it looks better than the movie but that’s neither here nor there.
Make sure you pick up the new Naruto Run emote in the item shop before it goes away!
