Fortnite Dragon Ball crossover release date, cosmetics, and leaks
A Super Saiyan-sized collaboration is upon us.
Fortnite is no stranger to collaborations with popular franchises from films, video games, and even anime. That trend will continue with the next Fortnite crossover, which will feature characters from Dragon Ball. This has been rumored for a long time now, but Epic Games finally confirmed the collaboration on Twitter. It didn’t give us much information, but the company did confirm the release date, while leaving a layer of mystery to drum up excitement. Here’s what we know about the Fortnite Dragon Ball crossover.
When is the Fortnite Dragon Ball crossover release date?
As confirmed by Epic Games, the event will occur on August 18, 2022.
This lines up with leaker HYPEX’s claims (via MidaRado) that the Fortnite Dragon Ball crossover will take place towards the end of August 2022 “after Epic’s summer break.”
This coincides with the new Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero film, which is due out on August 19, 2022, in the United States. Talk about perfect timing!
What are the Fortnite Dragon Ball crossover cosmetics?
While the crossover has been officially confirmed by Epic Games, we haven’t gotten a look at the cosmetics yet.
Though, thanks to leakers and dataminers, we have a decent idea of what to expect from the crossover. Given the sources, such as Twitter user ShiinaBR, we’re inclined to believe these leaks.
Here’s a list of cosmetics and other items that will supposedly come to Fortnite as part of the Dragon Ball collaboration:
- Goku skin
- Vegeta skin
- Beerus skin
- An unknown woman character skin (possibly Android 18)
- Unique event skin
- Free rewards
- “Attack Ball” glider
- A new POI codenamed “Preheat”
- A mysterious “capsule” item
ShiinaBR also notes that Fortnite players will gain access to Dragon Ball Z challenges for upwards of seven weeks, making this one of the most substantial crossovers in the game’s history.
As referenced by iFireMonkey, the aforementioned glider could be based on one of the attack pods from Dragon Ball, thanks to a texture that was spotted.
In terms of the unknown woman skin, it’s possible this will be Android 18, as she’s one of the most popular characters in the entire series.
There’s also a rumor that a Kamehameha will make an appearance, though it’s unclear if this will function as an attack or just an emote. As YouTuber Perfect Score notes, this could be a Mythic Ability, similar to Iron Man’s Unibeam, which was featured prominently during one of the Marvel-themed seasons.
Given Dragon Ball’s popularity, it was only a matter of time to see the series featured in Fortnite.
