The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, after months of leaks, rumours, and speculation, are finally coming to Fortnite. Each Turtle has their own skin, meaning we’ve got Leonardo, Michelangelo, Raphael, and Donatello getting ready to drop from the Battle Bus. Good time to get your friends together for a squad, eh?
Donatello comes with two styles – headphones on and off. You also have the various unique weapons that set the Turtles apart as wearable back bling, such as Leo’s Saya, Donnie’s Bo Sheath, Raph’s Sai Holster, and Mikey’s Board and Chucks. But of course, these weapons also make an appearance as pickaxes. There’s Leo’s Katana, Donnie’s Bo Staff, Raph’s Sai, and Mikey’s Nunchucks, completing the set.
In August, leakers found a file codenamed “FungusNinja” (or “MutantNinja”), seemingly pointing to a TMNT crossover. Players also heard weird noises coming from the sewers, and in the newest season, you can even dive into them to make a quick getaway.
It’s not just the Turtles that have crashed onto the scene. Their trusty pal, investigative reporter April O’Neil, is with them. She comes with a Channel 6 news camera for back bling so she can report “live and on location” as she drops the L on some kids. I don’t know how Fortnite fans speak. Griddy?
In the embedded video above, Hypex shows off all of the different skins and cosmetic items, covering not only the TMNT crossover but also the new Winterfest and Dragon Ball skins. We have Frieza and Cell in the game now, so there’s every chance you’ll run into Donatello duking it out with the Universal Emperor this weekend.
This isn’t the first time the TMNT has popped up in an Epic game. Only earlier this year, back in August, they appeared in a crossover with Fall Guys, so it was only a matter of time before they also made it to Fortnite with every other IP under the sun. With Peter Griffin now in the game, anything is possible.
The other big crossover to be announced this week was the hugely ambitious Festival, which will feature Kendrick Lamar, Fall Out Boy, Nine Inch Nails, NF, Olivia Rodrigo, The All-American Rejects, and Lady Gaga to name a few.
This isn’t your usual concert, but a new gamemode, joining Lego Fortnite and Rocket Racing. It launches tomorrow and is described as being like Rock Band. The TMNT skins are even compatible with it.
