It is important to note, at this point, that Nintendo has not confirmed any crossovers with Fortnite. Furthermore, Nintendo has stayed silent on whether or not it approved Kirby’s appearance in the trailers. This ambiguity might explain why Sony and Microsoft excluded the adorable character from its versions of the trailers.
Nintendo is highly protective of its IPs, and the two companies would want to avoid legal action. Previously, Sony had to take down Nintendo fan creations in the PS4 game Dreams after the developer sent a cease-and-desist. As for whether a crossover with Kirby is likely, that’s uncertain and probably unlikely. Even GoNintendo guessed that the DJ on-screen at the time might have just really liked the puffball.
Although Kirby may not be a playable character in Fortnite anytime soon, Epic Games probably isn’t done collaborating with popular characters. According to recent leaks, Aquaman will be showing up in-game in time for the battle royale’s water-themed season.
