The popular game called Fortnite has a lot of things to offer. It always tries something new by collaborating with wit a lot of parties from film franchise to culture icons, and even sport icons. In the past, it has collaborated with the popular act like Scott Travis, the popular movies named Avenger: Endgame, Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker, and Deadpool, the popular DJ named Marshmello, the popular character of the movie named Harley Quinn, and many other ones.
The recent court battle between Epic Games and Apple made people believe that there are some upcoming collaborations coming to Fortnite. They believe that Epic Games is taking the battle royale somewhere new, which is the world of anime.
There is a chance for Naruto Uzumaki to join Fortnite island soon due to the fact that there is no confirmation that the collaboration has been totally canceled. When the course of the court battle was on going, there was a document showing up the plan made by Epic Games until the first quarter of 2021. Some people managed to see that a number of collaborations were delayed. One of those collaborations that were delayed is Naruto.
Actually, it is not confirmed that Naruto is coming to Fortnite since the document that was leaked did not show any date for the release. Not only that, it also did not have any visual assets of the skin. Everything that was seen was an image of the character from the anime.
However, the collaboration with the Brazilian footballer named Neymar JR. that went live this season was supposed to be schedule for the third quarter of last year. As for the collaborations with popular NBA player named LeBron James and popular Hollywood actor named Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson were supposed to be released in December last year and the first quarter of this year.
The collaboration with LeBron James might be released soon, but there is still no news about the collaboration with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Talking about Fortnite and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, many people have been assuming that he is the leader of the Seven in Fortnite named The Foundation.
All the things mentioned above mean that the collaborations included in the document are just being delayed and the chance for everyone to be blessed with all the collaborations is still high, including the collaboration between Fortnite and Naruto.
If the collaboration between Fortnite and Naruto really happens and gets good feedback, it is not impossible from the other characters featured in the Naruto universe to join the game. Jiraiya is one of the characters that have the most votes to be included in the collaboration. It is actually makes sense for him to be included in the game knowing he used to be the mentor of Naruto. These two characters are well-loved and definitely popular.
While it is true that there are some Fortnite skins with anime style, it looks like there will be some real anime and manga crossover one day if the floating rumor is legit. According to the newest news, the developer of Fortnite called Epic Games has talked about the collaboration with a Japanese company that is responsible for publishing a lot of different magazines that include a few different popular properties. The name of that Japanese company is Shueisha. If you are not familiar with this company and if it is your first time hearing the name, you have probably heard of a company belong to both Shueisha and Shogakukan called Viz Media. This company is known to be the publisher of Shonen Jump and the license holder of several things such as Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, Jojo’s Bizzare Adventure, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, Dragon Ball Super, and some other different ones. Naruto and Dragon Ball are two big names that are believed to be included in the collaboration, even though nothing has been confirmed yet. As of now, it is only speculation and the only thing that will tell if everything is true is the time.
The latest information about the possible collaboration between Fortnite and Naruto comes from the one who usually leaks the information about Fortnite called TweaBR. According to the source, Epic Games is currently teaming up with that Japanese company to make more than just one collaborations.
The rumor about the potential Naruto skin has been around since forever, even though it still remains rumor and never makes it to the game. It is actually normal if there is a gap between the time where a thing is spotted on the leaked document with the actual release.
Since it is kind of impossible to see all the brands related to Shueisha to Fortnite, people can dream of at least a few of their favorite anime and manga adaptations featured in the game in the future. If Fortnite can feature the skins from both DC and Marvel universes and some other ones that were never expected before, it is really possible for the anime and manga to make it as well.
Epic Games still remains silent and has not confirmed the rumor. When it comes to the rumor, people do not rely on Epic Games and tend to rely on the other sources instead. The rumors that are spreading are usually come true knowing the previous cases. These rumors are usually reliable and details.
Once again, it is only speculation and the only thing that will tell if everything is true is the time. You can try to guess what kind of thing will be released from the collaboration if it is really true. No one forbids you from dreaming. However, do not dream too high as the expectation might be not similar with reality. To avoid getting disappointed, it is better for you to lower your expectation.
