Boba Fett will be coming to the uber-popular Fortnite this Christmas Eve. Comicbook is reporting that Epic Games has just shown us what the best bounty hunter in the galaxy will look like when he makes his debut in the shooter-builder hybrid, he looks a lot like Boba Fett from The Mandalorian as opposed to from the original Star Wars trilogy:

This is not the first time that Star Wars has made its way into the Fortnite cannon. Earlier this year a new game mode was added, Mando’s Bounty, that was based on The Mandalorian. A mode that tasks players with not only finding a bounty in the form of another player, but also finding that Beskar Umbrella.
On an Island Far, Far Away…
Boba Fett is the newest crossover that adds to a plethora of crossovers that Epic Games has managed to pull off over the years. They have a crossover for nearly every popular IP that has ever existed. From Marvel to DC, to the NFL, NBA, and Monopoly. Even movies like Bad Boys, Tenent, the John Wick franchise, Predator, Terminator, and Alien; along with Universal’s assortment of monsters like Frankenstein and The Mummy. G.I. Joe, The Walking Dead, Resident Evil, Street Fighter, and most recently from Denis Villeneuve’s film adaption of Dune. Even Chesperitio, a Mexican sketch comedy television show that I used to watch as a kid. That one caught me off guard.
Hopefully one day we might see a crazier crossover like Arrested Development…
