An inside source believes Naruto will appear in the Fortnite Chapter 2 - Season 8 Battle Pass.


Epic Games plans to add Naruto to Fortnite’s expanding cast of characters, a reliable source indicated today. The last two years have shown just how powerful the iconic Battle Royale title is despite opinions to the contrary. Fans have witnessed collaborations with Travis Scott, Rick and Morty, Terminator, Marvel Comics and much more to name a few. Last season saw the emergence of Anime-style skins, and naturally, players began theorizing the possibilities. Naruto from the hit Anime show of the same name became a focus, which could happen very well.

Naruto Leaks Almost 100% Confirmed

ShiinaBR, a reliable leaker in the Fortnite scene, believes information from an inside source to be accurate. Many months ago, a post that went viral on Reddit pointed toward several Fortnite crossovers that have since happened. Naruto was one of those possibilities, and the source confirmed Epic managed to obtain the character’s rights. ShiinaBR states that the developers are looking to make Naruto the main event of Chapter 2 - Season 8’s Battle Pass.

Let’s not forget, Naruto appeared in court documents during the Epic Games vs. Apple antitrust legal battle. Epic has not confirmed these rumors for obvious reasons, but we’ve seen how accurate leaks of this magnitude have been in the past. The entire scene, both casual and competitive, is partial toward Anime characters, so it will be interesting to see if the Naruto collaboration materializes. ShiinaBR did note that he cannot confirm the leaks himself but believes the source is accurate.
