Hasbro unveils Fortnite toy and game plans

Company introduces Monopoly: Fortnite Edition and official NERF Fortnite Blasters.

Hasbro has confirmed its new partnership with Epic Games to introduce a range of Fortnite-inspired toys and games.

The company will launch NERF Fortnite Blasters, immersing fans into the player-versus-player action of the game, and letting them play out Battle Royale in real world settings.

The blasters and accessories will launch in 2019.

In addition, Monopoly: Fortnite Edition will bring a battle building twist to the classic fasts dealing property trading game. It will debut in the US and UK this autumn, with additional markets to follow in 2019.

“Fortnite has quickly become a cultural phenomenon with legions of players worldwide, many of whom are already searching for NERF blasters to host their own Fortnite battles,” said Jonathan Berkowitz, president, Hasbro Brands.

“Through our collaboration with Epic Games, fans will now have the ability to experience the Battle Royale in all new ways, whether it’s the active and adventurous fun of a NERF Fortnite blaster battle or the exciting strategizing of playing Monopoly Fortnite with friends.”

Mark Rein, co-founder of Epic Games, added: “Hasbro is well-known for bringing iconic brands to life, and we’re honored to collaborate on an awesome line-up that delivers on the fun of Fortnite.

“NERF blasters are truly the best way to reenact Fortnite battles outside of the game, and we can’t wait to see our fans create Fortnite stories all of their own with the iconic accessories seen in the game, or by bringing the battle offscreen with Monopoly.”
