Fortnite Chapter 5 teases TMNT

Fortnite put out a trailer for there upcoming Chapter 5, and they teased a collaboration with TMNT.







There's a Tiger character that's gonna be a part of Chapter 5, He's giving me Tiger Claw vibes, His name is Oscar.

Digging their designs, and looks like their weapons will be their pickaxes of course. Hopefully they release soon.

Peter Griffin: Holy Crap! It's the Ninja Turtles! Say the thing!
Mike: What thing?
Peter Griffin: You know the thing!
Mike: Uh... Cowabunga?
Peter Griffin: No!
Mike: ... Boyahkasha?
Peter Griffin: No, like the joke, your famous joke!
Mike: ... Uh... "One Ice Cream and Sashimi Pizza please"?
Peter Griffin: Ehehehehehehehehe! Yeah that's the one, two thing that don't belong on a pizza is the funniest running gag ever, I can't get sick of it ever and I don't see anyone else ever doing so. It's almost as good as the time I heard the word.
Mike: What word?

I play hundreds of games every year and have been playing videogames since 1987, and to this day I have no idea what Fortnite even is.

Interesting.
Fortnite becomes Super Smash Bros, but for the pop-culture.

I've played it for maybe 30 minutes Couldn't figure out what to do, someone killed me and I uninstalled the game. Speaks volumes about how much interest I had in it, in the first place, LOL.

So, my playtime in this game was extremely brief. I have no idea what exactly is this game nowadays and honestly don't care, but glad for people who like it.

As for TMNT designs - funny, but they look almost like updated Next Mutation designs (from the concept arts, not a series proper). Also, now that's April! Accept no substitutes as they say.

Look how easy it is to make turtle and april designs that look both authentic and yet still fresh and new. if only more attempts to 'modernize' the turtles would take such an approach.

Now I'm also wondering if any companies can or will make toy versions of the fortnite turtles.

Yeah it would be a big missed opportunity to not make figures of these.


A look at some of the new Lego skins revealed the turtles will be included there as well: https://x.com/ifiremonkey/status/173...QHsTg5iVRVyQxw

Does it mean Lego once again has rights for TMNT and not Megablocks or whoever had them for the last few years?

Nah, modern creators are so brimming with creativity, they need to butcher all design and raceswap characters. Otherwise no-one will remember them. At least, that's what they think.

Also, I like this younger take on FW April

UPD:

There is definitely a similarity.
Like a combination of designs from Next Mutation (white bands, lots of belts and bandanna on Raph), movies (general bodyshape) and 2k7 movie (headshape) and 2k3 (colors and Mikey expression)

I don't understand these Fortnite skins. Are they just as they seem, skins for the playable character (costumes?), but they're only offered for sale a limited time and then they disappear?

Downloaded and played Fortnite for the first time today on my PS5. I suck, but it's pretty fun. I still don't really understand how the skins work. Do I need battle pass to get the turtles? Anyway, excited for them to drop.

That’s basically it, they aren’t part of a Battle Pass.

Unless theyre tied to the battle pass, no. Theyll drop and be available for a few days then the skins rotate to the next one.

A lot of vids are now appearing of the new skins.



I think they look really awesome.

Oh and it's Fortnite so, of course, dancing:

I do not like seeing the Turtles use guns.

Yeah, Turtles with guns are weird.
Also, they are so tall in this version. I got used to them being shorter and "buffer", if it makes sense.

But overall looks pretty cool, even if I am not fan of a bandanna on Raph.
