Fans of Japanese horror icon Junji Ito can now explore his world in Fortnite.
Fortnite has always found a way to cater to any fanbase in existence just about and today is no different. While not an official Fortnite creation, fans of the horror manga icon Junji Ito have taken it upon themselves to create a map that embraces his new manga series on Netflix. The show is called Junji Ito’s Maniac: Japanese Tales of the Macabre, and it’s not for the faint of heart.
Junji’s creations are some of the more unnerving in existence, as he deals with twisted and disturbing visuals and concepts that really get people freaked out. His new animated series on Netflix is no different, as it will also focus on more disturbing visuals than you’re used to in your normal everyday anime.
Some of the concepts in the show have been made into this new Island creation by Fortnite user NEIGHBOR and it’s called Junji Ito Maniac Haunted House. You can visit the island at the island code: 9800-8851-4190, but be aware, Junji’s works are not for the young or easily disturbed among you, so the island won’t be as well either. While I can’t say for sure what’s exactly in there, it’s safe to say that it doesn’t violate Fortnite’s rules for island creation but it isn’t going to be a walk in the park for your psyche either.
Junji Ito is not for Fortnite fans who are among the easily disturbed
It has to be stressed that you do not go looking for Junji Ito’s works if you’re young or easily disturbed, as his work is among the most horrifying and unnerving you’ll ever see. Body horror is the name of the game with Mr. Junji, and while his work can not be viewed somewhat in Fortnite through this fan creation, it’s going to be a very tamed-down version of it.
