Fortnite has always been one of the games that are known to have collaborations with some of the most popular shows and anime that we have today. Of course, the developers did it again when the trailer of Chapter 4 of the game was revealed, as it was made clear that our favorite heroes from My Hero Academia would be crossing over to this popular video game. So, when is My Hero Academia coming to Fortnite?
At this point, there is no definite release date for My Hero Academia in Fortnite, but there is a good chance that the characters will be released in December. The only thing that we do know is that Deku and a few other characters from My Hero Academia could be making their way to Fortnite.
The excitement among fans is continuously building up, especially because My Hero Academia is such a popular anime. In that regard, there is a good chance that we will see our favorite heroes sooner than later and quite possibly in time for the holiday season. So, with that said, let’s look at what we know about the release date of My Hero Academia on Fortnite.
Is My Hero Academia Coming To Fortnite?
If there’s one thing that we know about Fortnite, it’s that it has a habit of keeping the hype for the game up by releasing collaborations with popular fictional characters that we see in other games, shows, and anime. Of course, we saw that with the release of Naruto and Goku in the previous seasons. And the announcement of Chapter 4 looks to add a new character into the mix.
Of course, the character that we saw in the announcement trailer of Chapter 4 of Fortnite is Deku, who we know is the main character of the My Hero Academia anime. That means that our favorite hero is coming his way to Fortnite in Chapter 4, as the popular video game is now looking to partner up with one of the most popular anime series we have today.
Fortnite has just finished its third chapter with the successful Fracture event that allowed us to see new maps. In that regard, it was announced that Chapter 4 would be getting new crossovers in the form of several characters that are going to eventually make their way to the game. We aren’t just talking about the characters of My Hero Academia but also other characters, such as the Hulk, Geralt, and Doom Slayer. But the focus of most fans is Deku, who was clearly seen flying around in the trailer.
In that regard, it is now clear that Deku is on his way to the massively popular video game as Fortnite is looking to use the popularity of the character as leverage to make the game even more popular. Of course, the animation studio behind My Hero Academia was also happy enough to use Fortnite’s popularity as leverage to make the anime even more popular by introducing it to fans of Fortnite.
Deku was introduced in the trailer in a spectacular way when he used his One For All powers to punch a building to knock it down. That means that he is indeed going to have his Quirk in the Fortnite collaboration and is going to be a very popular character in the upcoming Chapter 4 of the game. And it is likely that Deku will be able to use his powers in a manner that’s similar to how Goku used his Kamehameha during the Dragon Ball collaboration that happened just a few months ago.
When Is My Hero Academia Coming To Fortnite?
While it has already been confirmed that My Hero Academia will be making its way to Fortnite in one of the latest collaborations of the game, what hasn’t been announced is the release date of the collaboration. This is something that Fortnite has had a habit of doing, as the developers tend to keep the release dates a secret just before the release of the collaboration.
However, based on what we’ve noticed about Fortnite, the developers have a habit of syncing the release date of the collaboration with the release date of episodes and movies that are quite popular. In that regard, fans are speculating that the upcoming My Hero Academia collaboration will be released on December 10, 2022, which is also the release date of one of the biggest episodes (Dabi’s Dance) of the anime.
As such, there is a good chance that the collaboration will also be released on December 10, as this will allow fans to stay hyped with both the episode of My Hero Academia and the release of the Fortnite collaboration.
But the one thing that should be taken note of here is that a release in the second week of December should be great for fans of the game. That’s because a lot of fans of Fortnite tend to play the game a lot during the winter time and the holidays, and that means that releasing the game collaboration during the second week of December should coincide with the time when there are more players playing Fortnite.
Nevertheless, nothing has been confirmed as of this writing. That means that we are yet to hear from Epic Games regarding when the collaboration will be released. The only thing that we are sure of is that the collaboration is indeed happening.
Which My Hero Academia Characters Will Be In Fortnite?
In the trailer of Chapter 4 of Fortnite, the only thing that we saw was the fact that Deku was a confirmed character for the My Hero Academia collaboration. However, we didn’t see any other character from the anime in the trailer.
Of course, with previous collaborations with anime series like Naruto and Dragon Ball, Fortnite included different characters from those anime series instead of just having the protagonist. That means that there is a good chance that the My Hero Academia collaboration will also include other characters that are quite popular in the anime.
In the Naruto collaboration, there were two waves that allowed different characters to join the game. As such, we can expect the same to happen in the My Hero Academia collaboration. Of course, we do believe that popular characters, such as All Might, Bakugo, Todoroki, and Shigaraki, are going to make their way to the game during the latest collaboration.
