Although Banjo-Kazooie is already in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, fans are hoping Microsoft and Nintendo find a way to get Master Chief into the game.

With Smash Ultimate, Nintendo pulled out all of the stops for what fighters will be playable in the game.

Everyone that appeared in previous games – 64, Melee, Brawl, and 4 – reappears in Ultimate, but Nintendo didn’t stop there.

Could Master Chief actually come to Smash?

There are so many characters in the game now that pretty much nothing is off the table when it comes to the DLC fighters. We still don’t know who the fifth character will be, but a reveal is certainly on the way.

With Banjo-Kazooie arriving earlier in this pack, it’s probably safe to rule out another Microsoft character, but that hasn’t stopped fans from hoping it is.

NintendoPikachu would welcome Master Chief with open arms.

Twitter user MemoryNova took the extra step and created what would be Master Chief’s victory pose. He shoots off a clip from his assault rifle, reloads, just before right into the camera with a glimmer of light in his visor.

Shooting his gun like that might be a bit much, but the basic premise is there and we could easily picture him in there through the help of this creation. All that’s missing is a mockup of his moveset, but it’s clear the rifle would be a big part of it based on this pose.

The identity of the next fighter remains a mystery but there’s surely a Nintendo Direct on the horizon where we will find out who this person is.

Just because this first DLC pack is about to wrap up doesn’t mean another won’t be on the way right after.

Smash Ultimate is one of the most popular games on the Switch and there’s no shortage of what fighters could come to the game.

NintendoWho will be the last fighter?

In fact, we’d be pretty surprised if this Fighters Pass ends up being the only one. While the roster is massive, there’s still plenty of room to grow and fans would love to spend some extra money to get even more characters.

Microsoft and Nintendo have shown a willingness to work together in the past so perhaps they could keep it going and cut another deal to get Master Chief in Smash.

Fortnite Halo Master Chief skin leaked and coming soon

New leaks suggest that Halo’s iconic Master Chief character might be coming to Fortnite, as the collaborations keep coming in to Epic Games’ hit battle royale title.

In recent Fortnite seasons, we’ve already seen Marvel characters make their way into the game and, for Season 5, a collaboration with The Mandalorian brings new cosmetics and challenges to the game.

For the strong legion of fans of the Halo series though, whether they still play it regularly or not, the idea of playing as Master Chief in Fortnite will be a hugely exciting one.

Here’s what we know about Master Chief in Fortnite so far.

Is Master Chief coming to Fortnite?

While there has been no official confirmation or even a hint from Fortnite or Halo devs 343 Industries, the leaks are starting to grace the internet, bringing the character that the entire Halo story is based around to the daunting battle royale island.

After an initial tweet from FNBRLeaks suggested that there would be a collaboration in the future — including a Red vs Blue LTM (Red and Blue are the two teams in Halo) as well as cosmetics — it was backed up with screenshots of the rumored cosmetics.

As you can see in the tweet below, there is allegedly a Master Chief outfit coming to the game, as well as a Lil’ Warthog Emote and a UNSC Pelican Glider arriving, both from the Halo series.

When is Master Chief coming to Fortnite?

As for when the leaked Master Chief is due to arrive, we don’t have much information yet. On December 2, leaks revealed that God of War’s Kratos will be arriving in Fortnite during Season 5.

Some fans have theorized that Kratos could be arriving in Season 5 for PlayStation fans (as God of War is a PlayStation exclusive) whereas Master Chief could be the Xbox alternative, with Halo being Xbox-exclusive.

If they do come at or around the same time, Season 5 is due to end on March 16, so expect to see these arrive by then if they’re both expected this season.

As always, take these leaks with a pinch of salt — while they come from reliable sources, we never the full details on these until Epic Games confirm them, so we’ll just have to wait and see.
