Today, Fortnite debuts heroes Izuku Midoriya (aka Deku), All Might, Katsuki Bakugo, and Ochaco Uraraka into the game as part of Epic Games‘ My Hero Academia collaboration. Players can enjoy MHA-themed quests, rewards, and gameplay items alongside going head-to-head in a new Hero Training Gym island created for the partnership.
Built from the ground up by the creator team Zen Creative, the Hero Training Gym is basically an in-game recreation of the training facilities from the hero series. Inside, players can engage in a team vs. team combat scenario in two different arenas.
Announcing our collaboration with @FortniteGame and @MHAOfficial to develop the Hero Training Gym inspired by Gym Gamma from My Hero Academia!

Teams must earn Rescue Points from eliminations and capture Rescue Zones. Also, players could take advantage of Deku’s Smash ability, which drops from MHA Vending Machines or All Might Supply Drops, to punch through structures. Deku’s ability will also be available on the standard Battle Royale Island. The first team to reach 100 Rescue Points takes the win.
For a limited time, players can pick up quests for the collab in Fortnite Battle Royale, Zero Build, and the Hero Training Gym until December 29 at 7:00 p.m. Eastern Time. These quests grant players XP and unique items like the Deku Spray, U.A. Cape Back Bling, and Deku’s Glove Emoticon. Also, on the Item Shop, players can pick up the outfits and cosmetic sets for the debuting heroes to gain the Symbol of Peace Emote, alt Styles, and more.
