Hasbro recently announced a partnership with Epic Games to bring Fortnite into the world of Monopoly, but that’s not where the rabbit hole ends. They also announced a Fortnite Nerf lineup, and it seems we’ll be seeing it revealed very shortly.

I guess it is really Nerf or nothing – as Hasbro announced earlier this year that not only will Fortnite be given the Monopoly treatment but also will have its own lineup of Nerf blasters in Spring 2019. They also updated their Instagram with a new announcement photo today (October 24). This might hint at an upcoming reveal of the lineup of weapons coming to the Nerf brand.
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.
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.”
