Fortnite is the undisputed king of the crossover. When it comes to any game on the market, nowhere can you find as many playable characters and iconic objects from disconnected franchises as in Fortnite. From Naruto to Star Wars, Fortnite has secured its spot as the toybox of the video game world with its lucrative crossover deals, and they show no signs of stopping. With a Dragon Ball Z crossover likely coming soon, it shouldn’t be surprising that we may also see a Studio Trigger crossover with Fortnite in the near future.

This information comes to us from HYPEX on Twitter, a frequent source for reliable Fortnite tweaks, but comes from Studio Trigger itself as well. The post by HYPEX quotes Hiromi Wakabayashi, a top-level producer and director at Studio Trigger, in saying that the studio is very interested in doing a crossover with the game.

While this is in no way an official announcement of a Studio Trigger crossover with Fortnite, the studio’s interest is enough to suggest that a crossover is likely. Responsible for such iconic titles as Gurren Lagann, Kill La Kill, Little Witch Academia, and numerous others, it is hard to imagine why the Fortnite team would pass on the chance to collaborate with the iconic anime studio.

Should this crossover happen, it’s more than likely that Kill La Kill, the studio’s poster series, will be the franchise coming to the Fortnite store. Ryuko Matoi, Satsuki Kiryūin, and Mako are the most likely contenders for skins in this crossover, with Ryuko’s Scissorblade and Satsuki’s Bakuzan likely coming as harvest tools.
