Leon S. Kennedy’s appearance in Fortnite x Resident Evil collab was highly anticipated by fans of the franchise!
Fans have mixed feelings over missing elements
However, the lack of his iconic jacket left fans feeling underwhelmed and disappointed.
Some fans even took to social media to express their frustration, pointing out that the other Resident Evil characters in Fortnite, such as Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine, have multiple outfits from their various appearances, but Leon only has one option.
Leon S. Kennedy in Fortnite appearance
Despite the disappointment over Leon’s appearance, fans have taken note of his in-game accessories. His knife, which he wields as a weapon in the Resident Evil games, has been turned into a pickaxe in Fortnite. Additionally, his attache case, which he uses to store weapons and items in Resident Evil 4, has been turned into a back bling in Fortnite.
While some fans find the attached case back bling to be out of place without any explanation, others appreciate the nod to Leon’s arsenal in the game.
Claire Redfield in Fortnite appearance
Claire Redfield’s appearance in Fortnite, on the other hand, has been met with mixed reviews. While some fans are glad to see her in the game, others have criticized her lack of additional style options.
Claire, like Leon, only has one outfit in Fortnite. You can learn more about what they look like in the actual gameplay demo here.
Many still look forward to Fortnite x Resident Evil
Despite the disappointment surrounding Leon and Claire’s appearances in Fortnite, fans are still excited about the upcoming release of the Resident Evil 4 remake, which is set to launch next week.
