Chapter 3 of the game saw the addition of Marvel’s biggest superhero, Spiderman. This was the only character that wasn’t added to the game during the Marvel saga.

Following the successful launch of one of Marvel’s biggest superheroes, new leaks are pointing at another Star Wars character, who could be added to the game. Chapter 2 saw the debut of tiny Yoda and The Mandalorian. Now, new reports suggest Boba Fett is going to make his appearance soon.

Twitter reacts to a possible Boba Fett’s skin leak of Fortnite Chapter 3

However, there is one key issue with this possible skin concept, as it looks eerily similar to The Mandalorian. The community is dived on this issue as some fans don’t see it the same way. These two elite fighters enjoy a separate fanbase of their own and do share some similarities. This fan is calling the skin a straight rip-off of Mandalorian as the attire mimics a lot of things.

Other members of the community feel this skin could have been an alternate idea for mando? Epic Games hasn’t confirmed this leak nor denied it, so believe in them with a grain of salt.

Other fans stated that every single Mandalorian hunter looks the same, so the community wasting time on a non-issue.

It definitely could have been a great alternate option for the studio, but too bad Epic Games never entertained that idea.

Indeed Mandalorian was an unbelievable experience, something that has left fans wanting for more. But to assume that everything is a cheap copy is taking things a bit too far.

Christmas is also the time for Star Wars and, historically, the creators have released each movie around this time. So it is no surprise that Epic Games is also planning to roll out a Star Wars collaboration at this timeframe.
