Published Jul 04, 2019Never ones to miss a good marketing opportunity, Netflix's Stranger Things and Epic Games' Fortnite are doing a branded crossover event.
With Stranger Things hitting Netflix today, Fortnite has got in on the action by revealing a set of Stranger Things skins, as well as inserted Upside Down portals in the Mega Mall area of the game. Of course, the mall is also a central focus of Stranger Things Season 3, so it makes some serious sense.
Down below, you can check out a few of the new skins, including one of Hopper and another of the Demogorgon.

This isn't the first time that the worlds of Fortnite and Stranger Things have collided. Recently, a "Scoops Ahoy" ice cream shop from Stranger Things 3 popped up in the game's Mega Mall.

And this also isn't the first time Fortnite has experimented with these kinds of crossovers. Most recently, there was a John Wick X Fortnite event in conjunction with the third film in the franchise.
Stranger Things 3 is out now on Netflix, and you can read Exclaim!'s review of the newest season.
