Fortnite’s My Hero Academia crossover has been confirmed and is coming soon. According to a recent tweet from the official Fortnite Twitter account. Fortnite x My Hero Academia arrives on December 16, 2022.
We first had hints of the My Hero Academia crossover with a pickaxe painted to look like All Might. Then, Deku appeared at the end of the Chapter 4 gameplay preview using his One For All powers to knock a building onto a group of opponents. This led fans to believe that the crossover event will be similar to the Dragon Ball crossover event, but instead of Goku firing off his Kamehameha attack, it’ll be Deku punching stuff (or possibly using his flick attack, but we haven’t seen that yet).
Epic Games hasn’t released the full details of what the My Hero Academia crossover event will entail, but an insider has claimed it’ll feature more than just Deku and an All Might pickaxe. Stay tuned for more info, which will probably be before the event starts next week. That’ll give us a good taste of what a My Hero Academia battle royale game will look like ahead of Banda Namco’s My Hero Ultra Rumble.
In other Fortnite news, Epic Games is being sued in Canadian court for making Fortnite too "addictive." According to a class-action lawsuit originally filed in 2019 but only just recently given the go-ahead in Quebec Superior Court, the suit claims that Fortnite stunts the emotional and social growth of children, causing gaps in vocabulary and social integration issues. It even goes as far as comparing Fornite's addictiveness to heroin.
Epic denies the claims made in the suit, noting Fortnite's "industry-leading parental controls" that allow parents to track their child's playtime and set limits on both playtime and spending. Epic said it plans to fight the case in court, with Epic's lawyer writing, "We believe the evidence will show that this case is meritless."
