It looks like Fortnite France accidentally let slip a new Fornite skin featuring Meowcles, following up a comic posted by the official Fortnite Twitter account yesterday.
This new Cartoon Meowcles skin may be a part of a new Comic Bundle, which may or may not coincide with a Bendy and the Ink Machine crossover.
Cartoon Meowcles Leak
As players can see in the clip above, Cartoon Meoewcles has a very 1920's animation vibe, with extremely dramatized movements, similar to cartoons of that era.
His suspenders even give off a very old-school Micky Mouse feel, as do his gloved hands.
This leak follows up the Toona Trouble comic posted by Epic Games yesterday, featuring Meowcles eating a strange fish and being consumed by ink.
This new cartoon vibe may have to do with a Bendy and the Ink Machine crossover, which features a retro animation look and feels.
@iFireMonkey has posted four Comic versions of Meowclesfound by data miners, which most likely coincide with the above clip.
Furthermore, the Kablammo Spray in the Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 6 Battle Pass features a cartoon of Meoewcles, Fishstick, and Peely in an old-school brawl, complete with a dust cloud.
So all this seems to lead to some Fortnite cartoon/comic tie-in, whether Bendy is included in the mix or not.
Bendy and the Ink Machine
Bendy and the Ink Machine is a series of first-person horror games set in a world of vintage animation, featuring a particular aesthetic that feels like Bioshock meets Steamboat Willy.
The villain of this series is Ink Bendy, a deformed version of Joey Drew Studios' (the in-game animation studio) most popular character.
Shortly after the Toona Trouble comic was posted, the developers of Bendy posted the following on Twitter:
