Rumors about a new Fortnite crossover have surfaced. Could the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles be coming to Fortnite soon? Here come the details.
Fortnite rumors are often found out to be correct, it may take some time, but the leakers are always spot on. One word, TMNT! According to the latest leaks, Epic Games is said to have signed a deal with Paramount, which will soon bring the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello, and Michelangelo to Fortnite. But what is the truth behind this rumor? Here come all the details.
Who Are The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles?
For those who don't know these iconic turtles, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are originally a US comic book series that first appeared in 1984. Based on this successful comic series spawned two animated series, a CGI series, five live-action adaptations, two fully computer-animated feature films, and a short live-action series. In addition, several video games were developed in parallel with the comics and the subsequent animated series. Don't even get us started on the numerous action figures and other toys from this cult classic!

The four Turtles are taught the martial art of Ninjutsu by master Splinter, who has mutated into a humanoid rat. The Turtles use their powers to defeat the evil in the world.
Are The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Coming To Fortnite?
The source for this new Fortnite rumor about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comes from the XboxEra podcast. In it, there is a segment with Nick "Shepshal" Baker and Jon "Sikamikanico" Clarke discussing the latest news from the video game industry.
During a brief segment of the podcast, Sikamikanico said:
I'm told that Paramount has apparently signed a deal with Epic to bring new things to Fortnite. The main thing I've heard about is that the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are coming to Fortnite. That would be awesome!
Beyond that, Sikamikanico didn't reveal any other details, but Fortnite leaker iFireMonkey, who shared the excerpt, claims that Sikamikanico is a trusted leaker who has previously "called things correctly," like the Horizon VR game for PlayStation and a few other things right as well. As a result, his claims are very credible, according to iFireMonkey.

Since this latest leak is relatively fresh and there have been no official announcements regarding the deal between Epic Games and Paramount, we'll have to wait and see if the collaboration will happen.
However, looking at the various Fortnite crossovers from movie and TV franchises like Naruto, The Walking Dead, and Spider-Man, it's not that far-fetched that the Ninja Turtles could really show up in Fortnite sooner or later.
