[Rumor] Naruto would arrive in season 8 of Fortnite: Chapter 2

Play or not Fortnite, those who move in the field of video games know very well that the giant of the ‘Battle Royale’ is not strange to collaborations. What’s more, its success has allowed it to acquire licenses for all kinds of intellectual property. These range from Marvel and DC heroes –It should be remembered that Superman arrived in the season 7– even characters from other games. It seems like no one is out of the reach of Epic Games.

However, a growing rumor has suggested that one of the most iconic series in the ‘manganime’ industry will make an appearance on Fortnite: Chapter 2 in the next few months.

Will Naruto arrive in season 8 of Fortnite: Chapter 2?

Rumors have circulated since June suggesting that Naruto, the protagonist of Masashi Kishimoto’s homonymous play, will arrive in season 8 of Fortnite: Chapter 2. The rumor started since a filing that was used in the Epic Games and Apple lawsuit was leaked.. In this the character created by Masashi Kishimoto is explicitly mentioned. In the weeks that followed, alleged leaks added to the credibility of the rumor.

In mid-July, u / SmugMrMime —Moderator in the forum of Naruto on reddit – shared information allegedly revealed by a leaker. In addition to correctly anticipating the Ariana Grande concert, the source indicated that Epic Games is trying to add Naruto as part of the Battle Pass for Season 8 of Fortnite. He also disclosed that the Cube He will return at the end of Season 7. However, he will be in control of a character who will have an important role in Fortnite: Chapter 3. Although he does not know when this update will arrive, the leaker assures that the whole map will change again.

Recently, Shiina – a well-known leaker of the title – has announced that Epic Games has secured the license of Naruto for the Battle Pass Season 8 Fortnite.

Despite the fact that Shiina has a good record as a filter, at the moment there is no complete certainty about the presence of Naruto in the next season of ‘Battle Royale’. Until there is evidence of greater strength, we recommend taking this rumor with skepticism.

Fortnite está disponible para PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, Switch, Android y PC.
