Cuddle Team Leader, Peely, Rippley, and more
It looks like Fortnite and Fall Guys are getting a crossover event, according to Fall Guys files dug up by a data miner.
Fortnite leaker Max found a set of strings in Fall Guys’ backend that explicitly mention Fortnite and some of its most popular characters: Cuddle Team Leader, Peely, Bunny Brawler, Rippley, and – of course – the Llama. It’s a pretty safe bet that these strings will refer to cosmetic items for Fall Guys, and Max even theorizes that the presence of Bunny Brawler in the lineup may indicate the Fortnite and Fall Guys crossover is scheduled to occur around Easter.

Some new strings were just added to the Fall Guys content system:
fortnite_01 – Llama
fortnite_02 – Cuddle Team Leader
fortnite_03 – Peely
fortnite_04 – Bunny Brawler
fortnite_05 – Ripley#Fortnite
The big question we’re left with now is whether this collaboration event is going to exclusively take place in Fall Guys, or if it’s going to have a presence in Fortnite too. Both games are hardly strangers to crossing over with other franchises, and Rippley’s blobbish appearance is already halfway to jelly bean territory. It would be a tremendous blessing upon all creatures if Fall Guys came to Fortnite as customizable skins of their own, though good luck trying to hide in a bush when you’re a 6-foot-tall, wobbly-armed, jelly-bean person.
Aside from potentially working on a crossover with the biggest battle royale in the business, the Fall Guys developers are also working to bring the game “to every major platform” – though we’re still scratching our heads over all the Xbox Game Pass weirdness last month.
