Rumors about a new Fortnite crossover have surfaced. Could the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles be coming to Fortnite soon? Here come the details.
A long time ago, Epic Games signed a contract with Paramount, which made rumors circulate that the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo would come to Fortnite. Then suddenly it became quiet about the possible cooperation. Until now. Here come all the details.
Fortnite x Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: A Possible Crossover
The rumor of a Fortnite x Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles crossover first circulated the internet in January 2022, after the XboxEra podcast. In it, there is a segment with Nick "Shepshal Nick" Baker and Jon "Sikamikanico" Clarke discussing the latest news from the video game industry.
During a short 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 trustworthy leaker who has previously "called things like the Horizon VR game for PlayStation and a few other things right."
As a result, his claims are very credible, according to iFireMonkey.

Of course, fans were quick to hyped on such a crossover, however, the rumors faded further and further into the background until hardly anyone was thinking about this collaboration anymore.

But recently, Fortnite leaker Shiina found the following interesting details in the Fortnite files that make us sit up and take notice again:
- One file contains a large, encrypted PAK.
- Below that, there is a mysterious set with the filename "FungusNinja"
- Fall Guys recently got a TMNT cooperation (Fall Guys is also from Epic Games)
- The Pizza Party item will be back in the game (and we all know how much the Turtles love pizza!)

Of course, this could all just be pure coincidence, but we know Epic Games.... Would a Fortnite x Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles crossover be so off the wall? Certainly not!
Who Are The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles?
For those who don't know these absolutely iconic turtles: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is originally a US comic book series that first appeared in 1984.
Based on this successful comic series, two animated series, a CGI series, five live-action adaptations, two fully computer-animated feature films and a short live-action series were later developed. In addition, several video games were developed in parallel with the comics and the animated series.
Don't even get us started on the numerous action figures and other toys from this cult universe!
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are the four mutant humanoid turtles Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael and Michelangelo who live in the sewers of New York. The four Turtles are taught the Asian martial art of Ninjutsu by the master Splinter, who has mutated into a humanoid rat.
As befits super turtles, the Turtles use their powers to defeat the evil in the world. As soon as new leaks about the possible crossover emerge, we will of course update this article for you!
