The controversy over the missing Leon S. Kennedy jacket has sparked a debate among fans of both Fortnite and Resident Evil.

Some argue that the missing jacket is a minor detail that shouldn’t detract from the overall experience, while others believe that it’s an essential part of the character’s look and should have been included.

I understand you all wanted Leon S. Kennedy with the jacket or RPD Style me too but i dont know the reason why we didnt get it but it is ok for me Fortnite doing a fantastic job on the Leon S. Kennedy Outfit with all the details & original Outfit from the RE4R i love him he looks just amazing & im not and will never ungrateful because hes just looks 10/10

one theory why we didnt get hes Jacket is the Jacket from the RE4R are a real jacket from irl Brand so if fortnite didnt get the rights for it they cant get it in the game so for me its the Leon S. Kennedy a masterpiece of a Outfit just perfectly
Thank you Fortnite for add him to Fortnite i love him! ❤️

Despite the controversy and the stir about the Fortnite Leon S. Kennedy jacket missing, the collaboration between Fortnite and Resident Evil has been successful.

The skins and other in-game items seem to be well-received by some fans of both franchises, and it’s likely that we’ll see more collaborations between the two in the future.

Only time will tell if Epic Games listen to the fans and release an alternative style that includes the jacket.
