Fortnite has done a lot of collaborating lately but these three games seem out of reach.
Despite all the celebrities, the movies, and even the video game crossovers that Fortnite has done in recent years, some brands, studios, and developers just don’t seem to be possible. While they’ve done the impossible on a number of occasions with their crossovers, some just don’t seem viable.
Whether it’s listening, issues with exclusivity, or an issue with the content, there are just times when you can see a collaboration being too hard to pull off.
That’s why we’re looking at three video game franchises that may not be doable in the near future for Fortnite. That doesn’t mean we don’t want these three video games to crossover with Fortnite, but we just don’t have a lot of faith that they will. At least in the foreseeable future.
Three video game franchises that don’t seem likely to appear in Fortnite
Metroid starts us off because they were a franchise that was supposed to appear in Fortnite. Samus, the series’ main star, was set to appear as Zero Suit Samus but was ultimately pulled. The rumor was that Nintendo wanted Samus and Metroid as a Switch exclusive, which was something Epic Games balked at. Times have changed, so who knows?
If there’s one franchise more protected by Nintendo than Mario Bros., it’s the Zelda franchise. Mario has had television shows, movies, and all sorts of stuff made for him. They’ve even had him crossover before with the Rabbids and Sonic. Zelda and her boy Link? Not so much. Don’t expect any sort of crossover with them anytime soon.
As with Metroid, Mortal Kombat was expected to have Scorpion and Sub-Zero debut in the game, but they were quietly pulled before release. The rumor around this collab not coming to fruition had to do with the level of violence in those games. They’ve had Gears of Wars though, so maybe they’ll bring in Mortal Kombat eventually.
