-themed Nerf guns are on the way, and look to bring a version of the battle royale game into real life.
Hasbro officially announced the line Monday. The Nerf guns are currently slated for a 2019 release and are said by Hasbro to “immerse fans into the player-versus-player action of the game.”

Or, since Nerf has a line of laser game products, it’s entirely possible that the Fortnite-themed guns could use similar technology to create a laser game that uses virtual walls as shields and other powerups.
It’s the latest sign of the hugely popular online game expanding to take over the real world, with aunveiled over the weekend.
However these guns end up, perhaps Fortnite players could practice recreating the game’s dance emotes for themselves in preparation.
