It’s Finally Here: Naruto X Fortnite (Epic Games Store)Visual Media Factory
Fortnite’s long-awaited collaboration with Naruto has finally arrived, following a tease last week on Twitter. You’ll be able to play as characters from the hugely popular anime series Naruto: Shippuden in Epic Games’ hit battle royale starting Tuesday. Naruto Uzumaki, Sasuke Uchiha, Sakura Haruno, and Kakashi Hatake, as well as a Naruto glider, two emotes, and two loading screens, are all now available in the in-game item shop.
However, Naruto skins aren’t the only additions to Fortnite. The game will now include a throwable paper bomb kunai as a weapon. On the Fortnite island, you’ll be able to talk to Kakashi Hatake, who will give you quests. In addition, you’ll be able to explore an entire Naruto-themed Creative map based on the anime’s Hidden Leaf Village.
The Naruto takeover is the most recent in a long line of Fortnite collaborations with major entertainment brands. Previously, the addition of Star Wars lightsabers as a weapon and an entire season dedicated to Marvel characters and locations were both huge successes. While the current season isn’t tied to any existing brand — instead, it’s full of cubes — the addition of Naruto characters to the Fortnite island brings some anime ninja action to the island.
