Fortnite gets its My Hero Academia crossover today

Fortnite My Hero Academia

Don’t worry, I am here

Fortnite is getting another anime collaboration today, this time with some superpowered stars. Deku, Bakugo, Uraraka, and All Might from My Hero Academia arrive in Fortnite today with purchasable skins and cosmetics in the Item Shop.

Over in the Item Shop, the four aforementioned heroes are getting their own skins and special items. Midoriya’s skin comes with an All Might Back Bling, for instance, while Bakugo’s cosmetics are suitably explosive. There are emotes as well, featuring bits like Deku’s tendency to take notes on heroes and All Might’s cheerful laugh.

Even if the cosmetics aren’t your thing, the My Hero Academia Fortnite collaboration is also shaking up the island. Special All Might-themed Supply Drops will be hitting the arena, and they can contain a little bit of Smash power to blast at opponents.

Plus, some new Creative and additional experiences are joining the game too. Completing the special quests will net you some cosmetics, while the Hero Training Gym offers a themed activity to take part in, much like the Hidden Leaf Village map for the Naruto crossover.

Going Plus Ultra

If you’re unfamiliar with My Hero Academia, it started as a manga and has become a pretty popular modern anime series out right now. Set in a world where superpowers are real, My Hero follows Izuku Midoriya, a.k.a. Deku, on his journey to become a hero through attending U.A. High, taught by the heroic icon All Might and learning alongside childhood rival Bakugo, newfound friend Uraraka, and the rest of Class 1-A.

To boil it down further, it’s got a lot of similarities to Sky High. But it’s a pretty good series with some memorable characters, and a cool one to feature alongside previous Fortnite crossovers like Dragon Ball and Naruto. I’m hoping for more Shonen Jump series to make their way in, too.

The My Hero Academia Fortnite crossover event is live now. The special quests will run until December 29, 2022.
