New Fortnite My Hero Academia Characters and Abilities Announced by Epic Games

Epic Games has recently announced the addition of several new Fortnite My Hero Academia characters to the game. Players can now play as Shoto Todoroki, Eijiro Kirishima, and Mina Ashido from the anime's Class 1-A. Todoroki is available as an individual character, while Kirishima and Ashido can be obtained as part of a bundle. This collaboration aims to immerse players into the world of My Hero Academia within the Fortnite universe.

In terms of availability, Todoroki can be found in the Fortnite Item Shop. He comes with two costumes and can be unlocked with 1,500 VBucks. Alternatively, players can choose to purchase a bundle that includes Todoroki and three other items, such as the Cold-Hot Hitters and U.A. Uniform weapon skin, for 2,400 VBucks. Ashido and Kirishima are available separately for 1,500 VBucks each, or together in a bundle for 2,800 VBucks. The bundle also includes additional items such as the Cultural Festival Dance, Red Riot Thrashers, Red Riot Shield, and Acid Axe.

In addition to the new characters, players can now use the Ice Wall ability alongside the Deku Smash. The Ice Wall can serve as a defensive structure to protect teammates or as an offensive tool to impede opponents. To obtain these abilities, players can find them as item pickups, particularly from the All Might supply drop marked with the former hero's face on a balloon. This collaboration also introduces quests centered around My Hero Academia, such as locating All Might supply drops, dealing damage to enemies with the Deku Smash, and causing fire damage to structures throughout the Fortnite world. Completing these quests will allow players to level up instantly.

While characters like Deku, Bakugo, and Uraraka are currently not available in the Fortnite Item Shop, it is possible that they may join the lineup in the future. Epic Games aims to fully embrace this collaboration and provide fans with a complete Fortnite My Hero Academia experience.
