Game News Fortnite: A collaboration with an iconic video game character is becoming clearer
As Epic Games’ Battle Royale continues its long career, we have just learned that an iconic character from Namco’s catalog is about to join the online battles of the famous multiplayer shooter. A famous yellow glutton who caused a sensation in the early 1980s and who could never have been imagined in such a production. Did you recognize him?
It is of course Pac-Man that we are talking about. The most famous glutton of the arcade galaxy will integrate Epic’s work through cosmetic items inherited from the Pac-Man universe. The association was revealed by the Japanese Fortnite site and is a continuation of the cross-overs glimpsed in recent months. That Pac-Man, who is one of the emblems of video games, is joining the Battle Royale is far from trivial. Sure, it’s cosmetic, but it could be fun to play with objects and characters with the famous yellow dot.
FORTNITE AND CROSSOVERS, THE STORY CONTINUES
Almost everything has been said about Fortnite. Born in 2011 from a Game Jam, Epic’s game found its way by modeling on the model of PlayerUnknown’s Battleground and integrating a Tower Dense system aimed at protecting itself by establishing various fortifications. Encrusted with development problems (especially during the transition from Unreal Engine 3 to Unreal Engine 4), the title has been the subject of very regular monitoring and has gradually established itself as one of the strongholds of online video games. Available on all media on the market, Fortnite then stood out by partnering with various licenses such as Marvel, John Wick, Stranger Things or even Borderlands. With Pac-Man, he opens a new page in his long existence.
