It’s hard to ignore the incredible amount of crossover content that has come to Fortnite in the past years. The battle royale has collaborated with so many brands, IPs, and pop culture media that it’s become one of the most recognizable aspects about it. These Fortnite costumes have included heroes and villains alike from anime such as Naruto to multimedia empires like Star Wars. The latest additions to the game, just in time for the New Year, are costumes based on the hit TV Show Cobra Kai.
For those not familiar with the show, Cobra Kai is the sequel spin-off series of the 1980s Karate Kid films, focusing on Daniel Laruso’s rival Johnny Lawrence. It’s become one of Netflix’s most streamed shows in 2021 with the debut of its third season. Cobra Kai‘s fourth season will be having Daniel and Johnny’s Miyagi-Do and newly formed Eagle Fang dojos joining forces, as they face off against Kreese and Cobra Kai in the All Valley Karate tournament.
To celebrate the release of this fourth season, Fortnite is getting costume skins based on the gi of the dojos in Cobra Kai. There are ten of these skins that are now a part of the in-game Item Shop, based on either Cobra Kai, Eagle Fang, and Miyagi-Do. Among these ten costumes are two more variations, known as the Karateka Jones outfit, which represents learning Karate to defend reality. The other is known as the Heron Stance Hero skin, which represents honor according to the official website.
Alongside these skins are accessories based on Cobra Kai, with Back Blings and Pickaxes based on the Miyagi-Do or Cobra Kai’s teachings. The last cosmetic addition with this pack is a brand-new Fortnite emote based on the iconic Crane Kick. This was the finishing move of the original Karate Kid movie, and has been referenced in sequels and Cobra Kai itself, used by Daniel Laruso and Miguel Diaz.
All of these items can be purchased individually or all at once through the Karate KO and Dojo Showdown Bundles. These items are great ways for Karate Kid and Cobra Kai fans to celebrate the release of fourth season on New Year’s Day in the game. This is especially exciting for fans of the series, considering that the fifth season of Cobra Kai also finished shooting earlier this month too.
Fortnite is available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
