Taking an eerie inspiration from Netflix’s Junji Ito Maniac: Japanese Tales of the Macabre anime series, the metaverse studio NEIGHBOR created five unique maps that you can actually take adventures on Fortnite.
Players of Fortnite can immerse themselves into the spooky worlds of the horror master Junji Ito, as the five maps take reference from the manga Hanging Balloons, Tomie’s Photography, Soichi’s Lapdog, Tombstone Town, and Headless Sculpture.

In order to add the five maps, players must go to Fortnite Creative and input the room code for the Junji Ito Maniac Haunted House, which is 9800-8851-4190. Once you do, the following five maps will be added to your playlist:
■ Hanging Balloons
A popular idol committed suicide. After that day, hanging balloons with the same faces as people began to fly overhead. When you are caught by a hanging balloon with the same face as yours…you don’t want to find out.
■ Tomie’s Pictures
Tomie is a beautiful woman who attracts men. However, when Tomie takes a picture of her, it is said that something strange is reflected in the picture. She orders her cronies in the public morals committee to kill Tsukiko, a member of the photography club. Run away from here, as fast as you can!!
■ Soichi’s Lapdog
My name is Colon. I am a kitten that Sayuri found. But you know… since I got into trouble with Soichi… I’ve been acting a little… strange…If I don’t do something…meow… meow…Dodge Soichi’s traps and let the lightning of judgment strike!
■ Tombstone Town
A mysterious town where dead people are turned into tombstones. On the way there, I ran over a girl with my car. I have to get rid of this dead body in the trunk as soon as possible…! Before this corpse becomes a tombstone…Head through town to the old well of the shrine!
■ Tombstone Town
An art teacher who has been creating strange headless sculptures was mysteriously decapitated. In order to find out the truth about it, you step into the old school building where the art room is located. Head to the art room and find the teacher’s head, but run away from those headless sculptures!
