Prominent Twitter Fortnite leaker HYPEX revealed, on Feb 11, 2024, that One Piece and its characters are going to be entering the world of Fortnite in the near future! This information was casually dumped during an episode of the XboxEra Podcast.
First it was Dragon Ball, then My Hero Academia and Jujutsu Kaisen, and now finally One Piece. Fans have been looking forward to this collab even since the gaming franchise began including anime character skins and attacks.
According to XboxEra’s website, the timeline ranges all over the place and nothing is set in stone, but Fortnite players can expect the following collabs to come sometime in the future:
- One Piece
- Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth
- The Fantastic Four
The main host, Nick Baker had gotten his leaks right before (TMNT and so on), but still, until the official announcement comes (which we have no idea when that’ll come), do take this with a grain of salt.
