Fortnite, the popular battle royale game developed by Epic Games, has recently announced the addition of new characters from the hit anime series My Hero Academia. Players can now play as Shoto Todoroki, Eijiro Kirishima, and Mina Ashido, all of whom are part of Class 1-A. Todoroki is available as a standalone character, while Kirishima and Ashido come together in a bundle.
A New Lineup of Characters
The addition of these My Hero Academia characters to Fortnite’s Item Shop provides players with a fresh lineup of playable characters. Todoroki comes with two costumes and can be purchased for 1,500 VBucks. There’s also a bundle option available for 2,400 VBucks, which includes Todoroki and three additional items like the Cold-Hot Hitters and U.A. Uniform weapon skin.
Ashido and Kirishima can be purchased separately for 1,500 VBucks each or together as a bundle for 2,800 VBucks. The 2,800 VBucks bundle also includes the Cultural Festival Dance, Red Riot Thrashers, Red Riot Shield, and Acid Axe.
New Abilities and Quests
In addition to the new characters, Fortnite players can also discover a new ability called the Ice Wall. This ability can be found as an item pick-up, alongside the Deku Smash ability. The Ice Wall can serve both defensive and offensive purposes, allowing players to protect their allies or hinder their opponents.
Furthermore, there are various quests available that are centered around My Hero Academia. These quests involve finding All Might supply drops, dealing damage to enemies with the Deku Smash ability, and causing fire damage to structures. Completing these quests will reward players with an instant level-up.
More Characters to Come?
Although characters like Deku, Bakugo, and Uraraka are not currently available on the Fortnite Item Shop, it is possible that they may join the lineup in the future. Epic Games, the developers of Fortnite, seem to be fully committed to the collaboration with My Hero Academia and are likely to continue expanding the roster of playable characters.
Fortnite players and fans of My Hero Academia can now enjoy the thrilling experience of playing as their favorite characters from the anime series. With the addition of new abilities and quests, there’s plenty of new content to explore in this exciting collaboration.
