Is Party Royale teasing a Fortnite X Nintendo crossover?

Did Kirby’s presence in Fortnite Party Royale tease a future crossover with Nintendo?

Published

Fortnite Party Royale debuted this weekend to mixed reviews. A lot of players were a bit disappointed with the premiere, as they were expecting something closer to the Fortnite X Marshmello event. Instead, they logged on to see DJs performing in front of a green screen.

Epic suffered from success a bit on this one. Many fans had incredibly high expectations after the Astronomical event, so the slowed tempo was a disappointment for a lot of viewers.

There was one element of the show that got people talking, however, even before the event started. Eagle-eyed fans noticed a familiar puff-ball on the screen with Dillon Francis.

Naturally, this led to theories that Kirby would be coming to Fortnite – in the form of a skin or a back bling. Kirby as a back bling during a larger Nintendo crossover would make the most sense, so the theories started to roll in.

Interestingly, when the event went live, Xbox and Playstation fans noticed that Kirby was blurred on their screens. Nintendo is notoriously stingy with their intellectual property – to the point where YouTubers often face copyright claims for playing Nintendo games.

This is the inherent problem with a Fortnite X Nintendo crossover. As amazing as it would be, it would probably need to be exclusive to Switch players, leaving everyone else in the dark.

It’s to the point where Nintendo may not even want their characters appearing on other platforms, meaning they may not want Switch players with Nintendo skins playing with their Xbox or PS4 friends.

More likely than not, Kirby was a Dillon Francis addition rather than a Fortnite addition. That’s why they blurred him on competing platforms.

Any Fortnite X Nintendo crossover would have to be on the latter’s turf. The Super Smash roster seems to be filled out, but adding someone like Jonesy in a future title could be the only way that we see these worlds collide.

Still, it’s fun to think about the next Fortnite crossover. No one expected to be able to play as characters like Deadpool, Batman, or Kylo Ren but here we are. Anything is possible for Fortnite.

Fortnite Crew subscription could be getting some huge upgrades

Fortnite Crew subscribers could be in for some massive updates soon, including potential access to streaming services.

Fortnite February Crew skin

A new Epic Games survey reveals some possible upgrades for the Fortnite Crew subscription, including bundles with streaming services, Save the World rewards, and more.

The Fortnite Crew subscription was introduced at the beginning of Chapter 2 Season 5 and has been a relative hit ever since. Most regular Fortnite players find that the value of the Battle Pass, a skin, and 1,000 V-Bucks justifies the $11.99 price tag – at least once per season.

Epic aren’t ending things here, though. A recent survey sent to some Crew subscribers reveals future plans that Epic have for their new subscriptions service.

Fortnite Crew upgrades

The aforementioned survey included questions about previous Crew bundles along with an inquiry about additional features that players want to see. Among these options were Save the World rewards, extra cosmetics or currency, and bundles with streaming services.

The last option might be the most interesting of the bunch. Epic have already partnered with Disney+, giving players two months of the service for free with any Fortnite purchase. With this new idea, there could be a world where Fortnite Crew subscribers get a free Disney+, Hulu, or Netflix subscription with their Fortnite bundle.

We don’t know how likely this is to happen or when it could roll out, but the survey makes it clear that something of the sort is already on Epic’s radar and is, at least, possible.

It’s good to know that Epic are continuing to evolve the Crew pack as the year goes on. By the end of 2021, Crew subscribers could get content for other games, STW rewards, special offers, or access to a premium streaming service.

We’ll keep you posted if/when any of these changes are announced by Epic. Until then, follow us on Twitter @FortniteINTEL so you never miss out on any of the latest Fortnite news.

Fortnite X Batman comic confirms Season 6 Deathstroke skin

The cover art for a new Fortnite X Batman comic reveals a new character coming to Fortnite Season 6: Deathstroke.

Fortnite Season 6 Deathstroke skin

Fortnite Season 6 hasn’t done away with the crossovers. Rumors have it that Deathstroke will be the next DC character folded into the Fortnite universe.

Fortnite has transcended video games in a number of ways. You can already see characters playing Fortnite in film and TV, but now you can see the characters of the game in the comic book medium.

Epic Games have a longstanding partnership with DC Comics. We’ve had several DC characters enter Fortnite, but now we’re seeing the reverse happen – Fortnite characters are entering DC Comics.

DC and Epic have partnered on a new comic book series, bringing the two worlds together.

Not all of the comics have been released at the time of writing. Some of them have, though, and have already given us some information about what will come to Fortnite. For instance, one of the comics revealed new Batman skins and a Batcave POI hitting the island.

Now, the cover art for the fourth installment of the comic shows a character we’ve never seen in Fortnite before: Deathstroke. As data miner ShiinaBR previously leaked, this is almost certainly a future Fortnite X DC crossover skin.

We expect to see this character enter Fortnite during Season 6. Epic could even include a Deathstroke tournament, giving players the chance to earn the skin for free. They’ve already done this with several crossover skins in the past, including The Flash.

We’ll keep you posted when we learn more about this potential crossover skin. For now, it seems far more likely than not that we’re going to see Deathstroke in Season 6.

Did The Rock just tease a Fortnite Season 6 collab?

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s cryptic Instagram video has led fans to speculate that he will be a part of Fortnite Season 6’s Foundation.

Fortnite Season 6 The Rock

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson posted a cryptic video to his Instagram page, potentially hinting at a crossover in Fortnite Season 6.

Fortnite Season 6 is less than a week old, but fans are already wondering what surprises are in store for the latest Fortnite season.

In Season 5, Epic went all-in with their crossovers, bringing in characters from film, TV, and other video game franchises. It’s still too early to tell if Season 6 will follow the same path.

We might be past the bounty hunters of Season 5, but that doesn’t mean that the collaborations have ended. Fortnite fans saw a video that Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson posted to his Instagram page that they think hints at a link between the entertainment legend and Fortnite’s new Foundation character.

Fortnite-The-Foundation

The Rock posted a video on March 16, the same day that Season 6 released. In the video, he said that it was a “big day” for him and a certain community. “There’s connective tissue between that world and my world,” he told his followers.

“This is all done to strengthen and evolve and grow the power and the force known as ‘The Foundation,'” he said before giving his signature single-eyebrow lift to the camera.

As fans of Fortnite lore know, The Foundation was the character who was introduced during the Season 6 cinematic trailer. He is, undoubtedly, the leader or the founder of The Seven.

We don’t know whether to assume that this post means that The Rock is The Foundation character or if he’ll play another member of The Seven. The video is cryptic, so it’s hard to tell exactly what it means.

Data miners have, reportedly, also found a file with the name ‘DJ’ underneath The Foundation in the Season 6 game files. This could, of course, be a reference to Dwayne Johnson’s initials.

We still have no idea what this post could mean. It could be a coincidence, a red herring, or a legitimate teaser for a future crossover.

That’s all we know for sure, but we’ll keep you updated when we hear more teasers, speculation, or official word from Epic Games.
