Star Wars fans should be happy about the return of lightsabers
Are you a fan of Star Wars or lightsabers? I mean, who isn’t? Well, anyone who saw the newer films, maybe. But as bad as the movies have been the shows have been incredible. The Book of Boba Fett, the Mandalorian, and now the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi series are all series fans have embraced.
Even if, in the case of the Kenobi series, the show hasn’t even debuted yet.
And like with other crossover properties in the past, it looks like Fortnite will be partnering with Star Wars, Lucasfilms, and Disney to do some cross-promotion with the return of lightsabers to the game, according to Fortnite News.
It’s likely that it won’t just be the lightsabers returning to the game but also an Obi-Wan Kenobi skin as well. It’s even more likely that Kenobi isn’t the only character getting a design for the upcoming cross-promotion, but a Kenobi design and anything beyond the lightsabers is just speculation.
What lightsaber designs are coming to the game?
Everyone’s least favorite new character will have her lightsaber available in its standard blue.
Kylo Ren’s static red lightsaber is coming to the game, complete with “exhaust ports” on the side of the saber to act as a saber guard of sorts. his is one of the more identifiable even beyond its colors.
The iconic green lightsaber of Luke Skywalker is making its return, so if fans want to reimagine him as the hero they remember from the first trilogy and not from whatever Rian Johnson turned him into, you will have your chance.
Lastly, Mace Windu is coming back to the game, but unlike the first time around, his lightsaber will in fact be right-side up.
