A new leak has suggested that a Shang-Chi skin could be coming to Fortnite.

Twitter user @HYPEX recently shared information regarding a possible Shang-Chi skin coming to Fortnite. The information originated from a Reddit post on r/FortniteLeaks, by Moderator u/SmugMrMime. The full leak itself was relatively short and didn't provide much information beyond the skin and a projected release date.

As of yet, the leak remains unconfirmed. Of course a Marvel crossover wouldn't be unexpected, given that previous skins include Iron Man, Loki and many others from the media franchise. On top of this, Marvel and Fortnite seem to have a fairly close relationship, so another crossover certainly isn't beyond the realm of possibility. Shang-Chi, a skilled martial artist with a mastery of physical abilities, would be a great addition to the Fortnite world and would no doubt be a formidable presence on the battlefield.

Is Shang-Chi Coming to Fortnite?

If the leak is to be believed, a Shang-Chi skin could be making it's way to the Battle Royale on Sept. 2. This would place the skin's release a day ahead of Marvel's Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings film release on Sept. 3.

The scheduling does seem convenient, and it wouldn't be the first time a Fortnite skin crossover coincided with a Marvel release. If the character really is coming to Fortnite we can likely expect an announcement in the coming days, leading up to the film's release. Until then, fans will have to sit tight and see if the leak's claims come to fruition.
