Naruto: Shippuden, a popular Japanese anime franchise, has been announced to return to Epic Games’ popular battle royale game. Following prior reports of a second Fortnite x Naruto Rivals crossover, which would introduce new cosmetic skins and characters to the game, this statement has been made. Throughout the game’s seasons, the developers have introduced a slew of fascinating crossovers, with popular fictional figures like Spider-Man, Indiana Jones, and Darth Vader joining the battle royale. Naruto, the popular anime character, was first introduced to the popular battle royale game in Chapter 2, Season 8, and now Epic Games is planning yet another significant crossover with the popular anime brand.
The Fortnite x Naruto Rivals crossover is set to launch on June 23rd, according to the developers. Epic Games has yet to provide any other information as of this writing. While we wait for additional details to be confirmed, noteworthy leakers have disclosed fresh material that could be included in the Fortnite X Naruto Rivals crossover, including new cosmetic skins for anime characters.
Four characters from the Naruto universe were glimpsed in a Japanese magazine, sparking the myth. Hinata, Gaara, Orochimaru, and Itachi are the four characters in question. While it is totally typical for these characters to be on the cover of a Japanese magazine, there is also a small Fortnite logo on the cover, indicating that these characters may be upcoming skins in the game.
Furthermore, this partnership may be the catalyst for the restoration of vintage Naruto skins to the game. Previously, the game featured Kakashi, Sasuke, Sakura, and Naruto, and the addition of four new characters from the same universe could pave the way for more anime collaborations.
However, it will be fascinating to see how the four new Naruto skins are priced. These skins could possibly be priced at 1500 V-Bucks each, based on the precedent set by the preceding skins. Furthermore, Gaara is likely to arrive with his large bottle of sand, which could be disguised as back bling.
