After Naruto, the next anime giant could soon find its way into Fortnite. A leak shows that a crossover with Dragon Ball Z may be coming soon.
Cary, North Carolina – Crossovers with anime aren’t an entirely new concept for Fortnite. Epic Games Battle Royale has already had two successful item collections in collaboration with Naruto. Soon, however, the ninja from Konohagakure could face powerful competition. A new leak from the Fortnite files gives strong indications that a crossover with Dragon Ball Z could be imminent.

Fortnite: New item in game files indicates new skins from Dragon Ball Z
Where is the leak coming from? Responsible for the current information about the next Fortnite Crossover is once again ShiinaBR. The verified Twitter insider and partner of Epic Games is considered one of the most reliable leakers in all things Battle Royale. With each update, ShiinaBR revisits Fortnite’s files, looking for fresh items and files that aren’t yet live in-game. With the current update, the insider has discovered new evidence of a Dragon Ball Z crossover.
What exactly did ShiinaBR discover? The leaker noticed a new item in the Fortnite files that has a logo that should catch the eye of die-hard Dragon Ball Z fans. The Stamina Prop in question features the logo of Capsule Corp, a company founded by Bulma’s father. The item also appeared a few times in the anime, with the same color scheme and logo placement.
Also, as noted by HYPEX, another well-known Fortnite insider, the Stamina Prop shares the same outlines as the Naruto skins from Fortnite, of which a new set of skins has just come into play. It is possible that other items and skins for Dragon Ball Z should come into play in roughly the same graphic style as those from the Naruto crossover. An outfit from Son Goku is also said to have been discovered in the Fortnite game files, but has not yet been confirmed by any reliable source.
Fortnite: Great Hope for Dragon Ball Z Crossover – Lots of anime and movies coming into play
How likely is the Dragon Ball Z crossover? In fact, new items from the Dragon Ball Z universe are anything but impossible. In another tweet about the leak, ShiinaBR stated that she had heard about a possible collaboration between Fortnite and the anime for the past year. But after there was no further news, the insider had written off the appearance of Goku and Co for a long time. The question now is when Epic Games might bring the new items to the Fortnite item shop.
What else is new in Fortnite? There’s been a bit of chaos in Fortnite lately. Not only are many fans disappointed by the Fortnite skins that Epic Games has recently brought into the game, there are also technical problems. Fortnite’s zero build mode is practically unplayable because a bug throws numerous players out of matches prematurely. Only recently there was another leak, according to which the pirate legend Jack Sparrow should soon come to Fortnite. So movies and anime are very welcome guests in battle royale lately.
