Today was what the pop culture world has come to know as Batman Day.

It's unclear why the annual event doesn't have a specific date, but the objective of Batman Day is to celebrate the anniversary of the Caped Crusader's first ever appearance in Detective Comics #27 in May 1939.

A special pack of caped crusador weapons and skins will also be available throughout this time.

This year, Batman is celebrating 80 years as a DC comic...and tomorrow (Saturday, Sept. 21) is Batman Day!

Tilted Town, one of the areas on the Fortnite map known as a "rift zone", has been transformed into Gotham City.

The Bat-signal will light up at the Domino Sugar Refinery in New York City before making its final appearance in Los Angeles at City Hall. You can check the IGN Fortnite wiki if you need some assistance finishing the Welcome to Gotham challenges.

As far as Batman-themed items are concerned, the game will introduce the Batman Grapnel Gun and the Explosive Batarang.

NYPD Commissioner James O'Neill joined the celebration - changing his Twitter account description to "James Gordon, Commissioner of the Gotham City Police Department".

In the comics, TV series and movies, the signal allows Commissioner Gordon to call for Batman's help against Gotham City's rogues gallery of villains, including The Joker.
