Shang-Chi has officially joined Fortnite's seemingly infinite Marvel roster to celebrate the release of Legend Of The Ten Rings.
Epic is dead set on getting at least one character from every major series or franchise on the planet into Fortnite. Batman, Master Chief, and Lara Croft are just some of the identities you can now assume when battling others around the world inside The Loop. However, no collaboration in Fortnite, or perhaps video game history at this point, is more extensive than Marvel's.
Fortnite's Marvel family officially became one member larger today via the addition of Shang-Chi. Shang-Chi also makes the MCU a little bigger today as The Legends Of The Ten Rings hits theaters. Shang-Chi's Fortnite skin is now available through the in-game store along with some accompanying cosmetic items. The Great Protector's Shield back bling, Blades of the Brother Hand pickaxes, and Dragon's Scale wrap.
Shang-Chi joins a long list of Marvel characters already available in Fortnite, most of which were added during the game's Marvel-themed season. Thor, She-Hulk, and Wolverine were all added during season four. However, none of them share quite the same likeness to their MCU counterpart as Shang-Chi does. Loki, who was added when his MCU series debuted on Disney+, also looks a lot like the character Marvel fans have become familiar with on the big and small screen.
There's still no sign of Fortnite's relationship with Marvel drying up anytime soon. Epic CCO Donald Mustard revealed last year that Fortnite's Marvel season was just the tip of the iceberg, and boy he wasn't wrong. With the MCU just starting to ramp back up as people return to theaters, it's likely there will be a few more Marvel characters coming to Fortnite before the end of 2021.
Speaking of which, next up on the MCU slate following The Legend Of The Ten Rings is Eternals, and then after that Spider-Man: No Way Home. The buzz generated by the very first trailer for No Way Home has been something else. The cameos alone almost broke Twitter. However, Daredevil actor Charlie Cox has unfortunately revealed the forearms you can see in the trailer that seemed to hint he is a part of the movie do not belong to him.
