In recent months, Nintendo has been more and more open to sharing its IPs with third party developers, whether it be hats for cars in Rocket League or the wholesale indie-developed Cadence of Hyrule. It looks like another huge cross-over could be on the horizon too, as Fortnite dataminers have discovered references to a “Squidkid” skin and back bling.

We’ll just have to wait and see what comes of it!
