Fortnite is the free-to-play survivor action game taking the world by storm, but there's always room for improvement. Right? That's what Injustice 2 concept artist Eric "Decay" Tran thought when he used his talents to bring a little Mortal Kombat to Fortnite character skins!

The NetherRealm Studios concept artist shared the unofficial designs based on Sub-Zero, Scorpion, Jax, and Mileena via his portfolio website. He elaborated on the impetus for the artwork via Twitter, remarking: "Everyone asks for a .@Ninja skin, but first, you gotta pay respects to the OG NINJAS!".

Scorpion returns to his quilted roots with a gritty ninja design similar to looks seen in MK vs DC Universe and MK2011. Sub-Zero rocks a simple, masked Lin Kuei blue ensemble reminiscent of MK2011. Jax is carrying heavy artillery with a tastefully updated version of the MK3 design we've seen in several games. Mileena goes shabby chic with long pants and tattered attire similar in spirit to her Mortal Kombat X update.

Each design superbly captures the iconic look of the klassic kombatants, applying instantly recognizable elements to Fortnite's stylized cartoon aesthetic. The hallmarks of typical Mortal Kombat design are all there, but it's a sensibility we don't get to see often. A pleasure to behold, even if you don't play the game!

Fortnite recently featured Thanos in an official tie-in event for Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War, but the chances for any similar Mortal Kombat events becoming a reality may be shrinking. The BBC reports Fortnite developer, Epic Games, faces pending legal action in South Korea for similarities to PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds.
