After Fortnite players spotted a large Wreck-It Ralph image on the screen in Risky Reels, they anticipated some sort of collaboration was being teased, and it sounds like the fans were correct.

Wreck-It Ralph 2 just released on November 21, and like past collaboration with Disney and Avengers: Infinity War, Fortnite is teaming up in promotion of the new movie.

Ralph was first spotted in game on the screen in Risky Reels, making a cameo appearance for only mere seconds.

However, the official Wreck-It Ralph Twitter page has sparked more rumors of the collaboration, replying to a Fortnite tweet about a new emote in the game, which imitates Ralph’s dance.

Fortnite promoted the new “Hot Marat” emote with the tag line “Check yourself before you Wreck yourself” – with ‘wreck’ conspicuously capitalized.

To which the official Wreck-It Ralph Twitter responded “Hey @FortniteGame, Ralph is on the loose! Keep an eye on your servers.”

At first, this could have just been a meaningless interaction, poking fun at Fortnite’s servers being unstable, but fans believe it hints at a more serious collaboration coming.

Fortnite’s Twitter also replied, sparking even more speculation, writing “Thanks for the heads up – We’ll be sure not to get rekt.”

The collaboration with Avengers: Infinity War saw a new Limited Time Mode (LTM) mode added, where players could play as the movie’s villain, Thanos, by finding his Infinity Gauntlet on the map.

The possibilities are wide-ranging for a Wreck-It Ralph collaboration, from new skins and cosmetic items to another new LTM, fans are eagerly awaiting what is next.

Ali-A reveals unreleased Fortnite skin haunting Weeping Woods

Popular Fortnite YouTuber Ali-A has shown that the previously leaked Madcap skin looks to be coming soon as a mobile glitch has revealed a strange character ‘haunting’ Weeping Woods. 

Across the different Fortnite seasons and updates, Epic Games have released a vast amount of cosmetics – with fans picking out their favorites and donning them in-game. 

Typically, these skins are leaked ahead of time as leakers are able to decrypt games files that are added to the mix with each new update and patch. Some of these skins never see the light of day, or are held back for quite a while, despite being leaked following a patch. 

One of the skins that falls into this category is the Madcap – a glowing, purple, Mushroom-themed skin. It was leaked quite a while back, and while it hasn’t been available just yet, it looks like it will be pretty soon.

Each new Fortnite update leaks a whole host of skins.

Popular YouTuber Ali-A pointed out that some Fortnite mobile players on Android had spotted the outline of a skin sitting around in Weeping Woods. 

The character that seems to be ‘haunting’ the POI, is stood under a tree with their arms crossed. However, it’s not colorful. Instead, it’s a blacked-out silhouette – almost as if it’s going to be added soon, but is showing up as a visual glitch in-game. 

Ali-A noted that the character is most definitely Madcap because of the shape of the head, and given that he’s hanging around Weeping Woods, there might be a challenge or quest line involved with unlocking the skin.

Even though the YouTuber’s speculation seems pretty spot on, there’s no telling if he’s right just yet because Epic Games hasn’t announced anything. 

It could very well be that, as Fortnitemares unfolds, the skin will finally be available through the item shop and there are also challenges in Weeping Woods to unlock skin styles. Though, we’ll just have to wait and see.
