Previous Naruto Skin x Fortnite Rumors

Originally, rumors started circulating of a possible Naruto Skin arriving in Fortnite after a document was released in the Epic Games v Apple court case.

The document in question can be found here, it shows various images of possible collaborations that may be planned for the future. As well as crossovers that have already happened.

Searching through the document and potential crossovers revealed that a possible Naruto skin was in the works for Fortnite. Although details of Naruto were sparse in the document, it still sent fans into a frenzy.

Now it seems that new leaks suggest the collaboration is indeed happening, possibly as soon as Season 8.

New Leaks Suggest Epic Games Acquires Naruto Rights

Details of a possible Naruto x Fortnite collaboration have been circulating for some time now. Fans of the popular anime show have been eager to get their hands on an in-game version of Naruto via Epic Game’s Fortnite ever since it was mentioned in the Epic v Apple trial.

Now it seems new information may have come to light from a leaker over on Reddit. In a public post by the moderators of r/FortniteLeaks, their source has confirmed that Epic Games have acquired the rights to use the character Naruto in their massive Battle Royale title, Fortnite. The acquisition likely means Fortnite will soon receive a Naruto Skin.

The leak was then posted by popular Fortnite leaker, ShiinaBR, who said that “Epic Games is apparently now trying to include him in the next Battle Pass”.

So, with Chapter 2: Season 8 right around the corner, fans could be able to get their hands on Naruto as early as next season. It’s also worth noting that this is the same source who suggested that Ariana Grande would receive her own concert inside of Fortnite. Which has of course come to fruition. Although it seems likely that the source is a reliable one, it’s always important to take this information with a grain of salt until it’s made official by the developers.
