Fortnite is currently available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and PC. You can check out all of our previous coverage of the game right here. As with Kratos and Master Chief, the Samus Aran skin will presumably be playable in all versions of Fortnite. Unfortunately, it’s all just conjecture ahead of an official reveal. For now, fans will just have to wait for word from Epic Games and Nintendo.
Are you excited by the prospect of Samus Aran in Fortnite? Do you think it might sell more copies of Metroid Prime 4? Let us know in the comments or share your thoughts directly on Twitter at @Marcdachamp to talk about all things gaming! It’s been nearly four years since Metroid: Samus Returns released on Nintendo 3DS, so fans are naturally hungry for new content related to the series. It’s hard to say whether or not the Fortnite crossover might appeal to them, but the move makes a lot of sense for Nintendo. While Samus has a dedicated fanbase, the Metroid games haven’t historically sold as well as some of Nintendo’s other franchises. Given the sheer size of Fortnite’s player base, a Samus Aran appearance could introduce a lot of newcomers to the series.
