Without a doubt, Fortnite is a global gaming phenomenon and that everyone still can’t get enough. It’s popularity already eclipsed that of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and still shows no sign of stopping. However, Apex Legends, a new free-to-play battle royale shooter from Respawn Entertainment, seems to be gaining ground. Statistics still show that the software from Epic Games is still on top. That’s why Hasbro is set to release the Fortnite X Nerf collection of replica guns on March 22, 2019.
Just like the cartoonish graphics of the game, the toys come in brightly-colored plastic. Fans will immediately recognize these iconic firearms that are some of the most popular weapons of choice in-game. For now, there are a total of eight models in the lineup with varying features. Each one sports the familiar orange tips required by federal regulations, Five of the products are dart blasters. These include the AR-L, SP-L, RL, TS, and Llama. Meanwhile, the HC-E, RL, TS-R all work as super soakers.
This is a great way to encourage both adults and kids to take a break from the videogame and mess around in real life. Some of the models are clearly inspired by actual firearms, while the rest only exist in the game. Prices range from as high as $49.99 for the AR-L and as low as $9.99 for the TS and Llama blasters. The family-friendly nature of the shooter gives Hasbro a perfect opportunity to market these toys. Let’s hope that the Fortnite X Nerf collection adds even more fan-favorites in the future.
