A recent leak has revealed that Fortnite’s next collaboration, Pac-Man, could be waka waka waka-ing into the Item Shop very soon.
Fortnite is synonymous with huge and unexpected collaborations, with major brands putting their beloved characters into the Battle Royale.
One major collaboration is coming up very soon, with Fortnite bringing Obi-Wan Kenobi into the loop in time for his Disney+ show. And, we already have characters like Doctor Strange in the current Battle Pass.
Fortnite’s next significant character may be even more unexpected than ever before. A new leak has revealed that the Ghost-eating Pac-Man could be collaborating with Fortnite very soon.
Fortnite x Pac-Man Birthday Items Could Be Released Very Soon
A new leak suggests that Pac-Man-related items could be joining the Fortnite Item Shop due to Pac-Man’s 42nd Birthday.
UPDATE: It seems like the announcement is official, with the Pac-Man Japanese site confirming it via a news post. The original article continues below.
Lucas7yoshi, a Fortnite leaker, tweeted an image of a piece of text that reads “the collaboration between Fortnite and Pac-Man has been decided.”
It states that “items with the Pac-Man motif will appear”, with a collaboration start date of June 2, 2022. The image, provided to Lucas7yoshi by a user called YukoBrando, comes from a Japanese Pac-Man website.
The leak also quote-tweeted an @FortniteGame tweet, with Epic Games saying Happy Birthday to the beloved arcade character.
It seems that Pac-Man himself won’t be joining the long list of Fortnite characters and skins. However, that makes sense as Pac-Man would be a reasonably strange character to play as in-game.
As per usual, it’s good sense to take this leak with a pinch of salt. HYPEX, a very respectable and trustworthy Fortnite leaker, did share the leak, but it may not happen.
