Wizards of the Coast hope to perfectly capture several different Island locations and iconic Fortnite characters in the upcoming Secret Lair drops.

Currently, they have only released the above promotional image.

There is no word on how many cards each drop will contain or what exactly will feature on each card.

"Fortnite will feature two special Secret Lair drops consisting of reprints like you've never seen them before—though you're on your own to practice your dance moves."

Fortnite and Magic: The Gathering fans do know that the cards will be reprints of previously released Magic cards.

This means that the Fortnite cards will not feature any new vocabulary or mechanics.
