Fortnite has seen a ton of different collaborations over the years, but Nintendo isn’t represented at all with any of its characters or franchises. However, Epic Games is very much interested in making something happen on that front at some point in the future.

Epic’s head of Fortnite’s ecosystem, Saxs Persson, recently said the following when asked by Axios how hard the company has tried working with Nintendo: “I don’t know what the word for, like, making diamonds is.”

Persson went on to touch on why a collaboration hasn’t happened yet with Nintendo in Fortnite, explaining: “Nintendo has their strategy and we have our strategy, and we hope at some point (to use their characters because) our players would love it.”

Fortnite has already teamed up with the other gaming first-parties. Kratos from PlayStation and Master Chief from Xbox are both featured in the game.

Fortnite originally launched in 2017. In 2018, the title launched on Switch as part of an E3 Nintendo Direct.
