Fortnite x My Hero Academia Release Date Announced

Epic Games

Fornite's next anime collaboration has been announced — My Hero Academia. Here's when its hitting the game.

Fortnite Chapter 4 has gone live. This season is determined to shake things up, with a brand new island layout for players to get to grips with. On this technically new map players will stumble into POIs such as the Citadel, Anvil Square and Brutal Bastion. But anime fans spotted something else in the Chapter 4 launch trailer.

My Hero Academia's Deku made a brief appearance in the Fortnite Chapter 4 launch trailer, hinting that MHA will be the next anime franchise to hit Fortnite. Thankfully, Epic Games has now confirmed exactly when the collab is set to go live.

When Does My Hero Academia Release in Fortnite?

Fortnite's My Hero Academia crossover will go live on Dec. 16, 2022.

The collaboration will follow in the wake of the highly successful Dragon Ball and Naruto collaborations. Each one saw the addition of a number of themed skins and other experiences, and while this hasn't been confirmed for MHA, fans are expecting something similar.

Also on the table this season is a new Marvel skin in the form of The Hulk, alongside Geralt of Rivia from The Witcher.
