Fortnite x Naruto is now official: skin release date confirmed

Epic Games has confirmed what had been a rumor/filtration for a long time: Naruto will come to Fortnite, and we already have a date: it will come to the game next Nov. 16. In this news we tell you everything we know about the new collaboration between Fortnite Battle Royale and Naruto shippuden and the new skin Naruto from Season 8 of the Battle Pass from Fortnite Chapter 2:

Fortnite x Naruto: confirmed date of the new skin

At around 11:00 p.m. CET on Wednesday, November 10, Epic Games announced on the different Fortnite accounts on social networks such as Twitter the arrival of Naruto to the game: It will be next November 16. Likewise, it has been confirmed that characters such as Sakura, Sasuke and Kakashi will arrive on the occasion of this new collaboration.

Naruto is currently not in the game’s filesystem; will be added to it with the patch 18.40, the last of Season 8 of Fortnite Chapter 2, which will also arrive on 16/11/2021.

In the documents that were leaked from the Apple and Epic Games trial there were several suggestions by the Fortnite team of possible intellectual properties and franchises to collaborate with in the game, which included the character Naruto Uzumaki from Naruto Shippuden.

Several of the images in the tweets inserted above (and which, as we say, were extracted as is from the Epic and Apple trial documents) represent characters that throughout these months did arrive at Fortnite, What Kratos the god of war, Master Chief Halo, or the artists Ariana Grande and J Balvin. It is for this reason that Naruto’s arrival at Fortnite Battle Royale doesn’t catch us “by surprise”.

For now we only know the release date of the Naruto skin; We do not know more details, such as its price, or what content it will bring with it. As soon as we know more, we will inform you about it.
