According to Forbes – Games (This article and its images were originally posted on Forbes – Games December 10, 2018 at 09:34AM.)
The above image is fake, something photoshopped that got passed around until it went viral, supposedly some sort of easter egg implying Fortnite characters are coming to Smash Bros. Ultimate. Trust me, I stood there for an hour trying to recreate that light effect, and…you can’t.
But even if that’s a hoax, I do believe that it is very, if not extremely likely that we could end up seeing Fortnite characters arrive in promised Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC on Switch. Why? A few factors that when combined together, make this a perfect storm of probability.
- Fortnite is far and away the most popular game in the world at the present moment.
- It has any number of characters and any number of weapons and items that could obviously make for a fun Smash Bros.-style kit.
- Fortnite had a high profile release for Nintendo Switch, a rare third party get for a company that misses out on nearly all big AAA games, and they clearly have a good relationship with Epic.
- Nintendo has shown that pretty much absolutely anyone is on the table when it comes to the Smash Bros. roster at this point, exemplified by the big Game Awards Persona Joker reveal.
