LEGO Fortnite throws it back to the ’90s with latest update

LEGO Fortnite pairs the old with the new, featuring everyone’s favourite LEGO pizza delivery boy from the ’90s in the Tilted Towers update.

LEGO Tycoon: Tilted Towers was introduced to LEGO Fortnite last week, bringing with it an all-new experience that allows gamers to create, strategise and defend in a new version of the popular Fortnite Battle Royale location. A closer look at exactly what’s going on inside Tilted Towers, specifically in the pizzeria, reveals the return of a familiar face: Pepper Roni.

Those who played LEGO Island will remember the pizza delivery boy from the open-world, action-adventure game, developed and published by Mindscape in 1997. It followed the exploits of Pepper Roni, whose name somewhat gives away his career, as he tries to stop an escaped prisoner known as the Brickster from destroying the island.

The game was well-loved both in and out of the LEGO community, becoming the eleventh-best-selling computer game in 1997, the year it was released. Pepper Roni himself has remained popular among fans of the game – leading to explosive excitement when people spotted him in Tilted Towers.

Others have also wondered whether the return of Pepper Roni could also mean the return of his nemesis, the Brickster, perhaps in a mini-game or dedicated game mode within LEGO Fortnite.

That still remains to be seen but it’s entirely possible. Epic Games doesn’t seem to be slowing down in terms of content for LEGO Fortnite and this nod to LEGO Island could be the first step of many along a nostalgic path to the ’90s.
