Not too long ago, leakers of Fortnite found a particular picture of the next major skin. It turned out the infamous hunter of the galaxy, Boba Fett, would be making his way to the game. This revelation seemed exciting at first, but it soon gave birth to a brand new row regarding its similarities with the beloved character Mandalorian.

As per the timeline and original chronology, Boba Fett was first introduced to the universe and Mandalorian only became relevant in the modern era. Following the leaks, Epic Games finally pulled the curtain off the new skin bundle, but fans are not happy with the way it looks.

The comparison between the two characters continues to haunt the developer, and Boba Fett has become a pretty controversial skin.

Twitter Reacts to Boba Fett skin reveal in Fortnite Chapter 3

Epic Games wanted to offer the entire world a true Christmas present from one of the most popular characters ever,  Boba Fett. However, this very decision seems to have backfired seriously in the worst ways imaginable. Gamers never really called for the addition of the galaxy’s most fearsome bounty hunter.

Fans are calling it the downgraded version or the awful variant of Mandalorian skin which was released last year in Season 5.

After the successful integration of Naruto with the Battle Royale game, anime fans are calling for more collaborations. Here are a few suggestions that Epic Games can certainly look into for the next year.

Some fans feel the larger size of Boba’s glider will offer him more protection as compared to his peers. If this turns out to be true, then Epic Games should really look into it. Fortnite is not a pay-to-win game.

Not the skin that everyone wanted, but sadly, it is what it is. Fans have to take what’s offered on the plate.

Epic Games are calling Boba’s ship after his name, when in fact the lore uses a different name. Ardent fans aren’t able to digest it easily, and the studio needs to make amends.

Everyone wants to see Fennec Shand added. Will Epic Games answer the call? She was indeed teased in the final poster alongside Boba Fett.
