Jimmy Fallon and Samsung to bring ‘The Tonight Show’ to Fortnite
Samsung Electronics America teamed up with ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ at Fortnite for the show’s first interactive gaming experience.
The playable Fornite experience, titled, ‘Tonight at the Rock Powered by Samsung Galaxy’ is set to launch tonight.
Players will embark on a journey in a replica of 30 Rockefeller Plaza, complete with a miniature Times Square and a subway stop filled with Samsung commercials and mini games inspired from The Tonight Show.
Players can also use in-game boosters featuring Samsung’s latest devices such as Galaxy Z Fold4, Galaxy Buds, Galaxy Watch5, and the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra throughout the games.
Fallon said of the gaming experience, ‘We recreated everything- Rockefeller Center, the 30 Rock building, our offices, every little detail of this studio, it's like you're right here. The attention to detail is pretty mind-blowing.’
Janet Lee, senior vice-president of mobile experience at Samsung Electronics America, said, ‘Tonight at the Rock empowers fans with a unique social adventure right in the heart of 30 Rock, all enhanced through in-game Samsung power-ups made possible by the Galaxy ecosystem.’
Players can tune in ’The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ at 11:35 ET for a special in-show integration mirroring the gaming experience.
