Their announcement tweet featured Naruto’s catchphrase “Believe It” and a release date of November 16th. The collaboration has been a long time coming as the rumors of a potential Fortnite and anime collaboration started making rounds on the internet forums in July 2021.
Anonymous sources on the internet stated that Epic Games has been working in secret with Shueisha. And this first collaboration announcement has now confirmed the legitimacy of those claims.
Aside from Naruto, according to the sources, Fortnite has planned multiple anime collaborations. Where Demon Slayer and Dragon Ball Z are just some of the big names after Naruto, that were revealed by the sources.
Although right now no other details about the NarutoXFornite collaboration have been revealed. But, with due time, more details about the other projects will be officially announced. And we finally will be able to see what Epic Games has in store with the AnimeXFortnite collaboration.
But, because the collaboration is so hyped, leakers have already started to release small details. Naruto Uzumaki, Sasuke Uchiha, Sakura Haruno, and Kakashi Hatake have been chosen as the new Fortnite Skins.
And to add, the graphics of the new cosmetic items such as Ramen and Ninja Scrolls have also started to make rounds on the internet.
