Fortnite’s newest hero: G.I. Joe’s Snake Eyes

The world of G.I. Joe, Hasbro’s kid-friendly military toy line (and the last line of defense versus the terrorist company Cobra), is now in Fortnite.

G.I. Joe’s G.I. Joe’s Snake Eyes is the current hero to sign up with Legendary Games’ fight royale video game, signing up with the similarity Din Djarin and Grogu (aka The Mandalorian and Infant Yoda), Master Chief from Halo, Kratos from God of War, and Sarah Connor and the T-800 from Terminator.

Legendary teased the addition of G.I. Joe characters on Thursday, when primary innovative officer Donald Mustard tweeted a picture of himself checking out a collection of classic Marvel G.I. Joe comics. In specific, Mustard read concern #21 of Marvel’s G.I. Joe, in which Snake Eyes start a rescue objective at a Cobra castle. That concern reveals Snake Eyes jumping from a C-130 aircraft, in Fortnite where-we-droppin’-kids design.

Fortnite’s present season is everything about heroes from measurements everywhere. Chapter 2 Season 5 of Fortnite includes a story arc called No Point, which concentrates on Representative Jones’ objective to summon hunters from truths beyond Legendary’s video game.

G.I. Joe’s present version, rooted in the 1982 toy residential or commercial property, has actually been checked out in animations, comics, computer game, and live-action movies over the previous 4 years. A brand-new video game, G.I. Joe: Operation Blackout, was launched in October to a lukewarm reaction. A brand-new live-action movie that concentrates on the quiet ninja Snake Eyes, starring Henry Golding, is slated for release in 2022.
