When Is Kakashi Hatake Skin Release Date?

Unfortunately, there is no further information regarding the release date of Kakashi Hatake skin, as this skin will be released along with other Naruto skins as well.  According to some sources, Kakashi Hatake skin will be released in the Fortnite x Naruto collaboration.

A Fortnite data miner ‘HYPEX’ has tweeted on November 10, 2021 that Fortnite x Naruto will be released to the game on November 16, 2021. It is said that Fortnite x Naruto will be added along with a Hidden Leaf Villager Creative Hub. So, it may be released tomorrow, hopefully.

About the Fortnite Naruto cosmetics and hub, a leak revealed that they are planned to release on that day at 9 A.M. Eastern. So, we can predict that Kakashi Hatake skin will come to the game on November 16 at 9 A.M. Eastern.

If you frequently see any Fortnite post on Twitter, you may already know that the date was confirmed via the official Fortnite Twitter account on November 10, 2021. 9 A.M. Eastern time is also typically when new NPCs, challenges and punch cards have been turned on throughout Fortnite Season 8. So, it is expected that v18.40 may be Fortnite’s next significant update.

How Much Does Kakashi Hatake Skin Cost?

Since Fortnite Naruto will bring a number of skins to the game, of course a lot of players are wondering how much V-Bucks you should spend to buy Kakashi Hatake skin. As there’s no official announcement about the price of Naruto skins, some Fortnite leakers estimate that the Naruto skin will cost between 1,500 V-Bucks to 1,600 V-Bucks.

We emphasize that the cost of Naruto skin is only an estimation, the real cost may be either higher or lower. The Fortnite Naruto predictably comes in the bundle. If it is true, the Fortnite Naruto Bundle will cost around 2,800 V-Bucks, putting all Naruto cosmetics into one collection.

Moreover, if Fortnite x Naruto collab features four skins within, we think you should prepare around 5,000 V-Bucks to get all of Naruto items.

What Are ‘HeadbandK’ and ‘HeadbandS’ Based on A Leak?

One of Fortnite leakers called HYPEX has revealed that Fortnite has two files named ‘ HeadbandK’ and HeadbandS’. Certainly, a lot of players just wonder what they are. Those headbands that are leaked found under the Naruto tag may refer to the code for Kakashi and Sasuke, both integral characters in the Naruto Series.

Moreover, Naruto has been expected to be added as an NPCs to the game. Then, those new findings probably means that other characters from the Naruto series will join the show now. Unfortunately, with Season 8 ending in early December, players may not have the chance to see Naruto and other characters this season.

Moreover, the Fortnite leakers also note that there will be a HeadbandS variant. Sure, it was further confirmed shown via a new image from HYPEX that apparently shows all the new cosmetics. In the image, you may see Sakura, Naruto, Kakashi and Naruto, and also the explosive Kunai.

What Is in the Fortnite Naruto Collab?

It is so common for every player to wonder what items will be available in the Fortnite Naruto collaboration. According to Fortnite data miners like iFireMonkey and HYPEX, the proof seems to suggest the upcoming collaboration will include purchasable skins, an in-game NPC, a brand-new weapon and the aforementioned CreativeHub redesign.

Moreover, there will be a number of items that will be available in Fortnite x Naruto, especially for skins of Naruto characters that will come to the game. As we’ve mentioned, you will find a bunch of ‘Headbands’ that are followed by a letter, such as S may refer to Sasuke, K may refer to Kakashi, etc.

On the Creative front, iFireMonkey also tweeted Ninja Scroll and renders of Ichiraku Ramen which will be used for Creative Coins. Additionally, HYPEX also mentioned that a new Creative Hub has been backed up by data.

More About Fortnite x Naruto Collaboration

The first leak of the Fortnite x Naruto collab first appeared on Reddit in mid-July. Its leak correctly predicted events just like Ariana Grande’s Rift Tour, The Sideways in Season 8 and also any bundles for a wide variety of DC-themed hero skins.

According to some sources, Epic Games has been recently attempting to bring the Naruto Series for the Fortnite Season 8 Battle Pass. Furthermore, a Fortnite content creator, Candywing assumed that Naruto will be available in the Season 8 Battle Pass.

Some time later, Mustard clarified that it was a misunderstanding. Sure, many people can now see where Mustard was coming from, considering Naruto took this long to debut as well.

The coming of Naruto to Fortnite  is considered as the latest in a long line of pop culture crossovers for Fortnite. As we already know, Epic Games seemed  to give a surprise for players by unleashing X-Men Dark Phoenix in Fortnite with a Phoenix Force Set.

Well, after Naruto drops onto the island, there’s no telling what other surprises the studio will have. We think that Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8 will arrive a couple of months ago in mid-September. However, this content of Season 8 will be expected to conclude by year’s end, however the details will remain under wraps.
