One of the most anticipated crossovers in Fortnite history has finally been confirmed, with Dragon Ball characters like Goku and Vegeta getting skins very soon.

Fortnite fans spent years wishing for their favorite anime series to appear in the popular battle royale game, and that finally became a reality when Naruto characters got crossover skins at the end of 2021.

It’s now been confirmed that the next big anime collaboration will be with the long-running series Dragon Ball – which makes sense, as it’s arguably the most iconic anime franchise of all time.

Below, you’ll find everything we know about the upcoming Dragon Ball collaboration in Fortnite, including a release date and all the leaks that have surfaced so far.

When are the Dragon Ball Z skins coming to Fortnite?

After months of rumors, Epic Games finally confirmed in a teaser tweet that the Dragon Ball skins will be released in Fortnite on Tuesday, August 16, 2022.

While the crossover still hasn’t been officially announced, it’s clear that the teaser is pointing towards a Dragon Ball collaboration as the dragon featured in the image is Shenron from the anime and manga.

Leakers previously hinted that the crossover would arrive at the end of August to tie into the new Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero movie on August 19, so they were pretty accurate in their predictions.

It’s also been rumored that the Dragon Ball crossover will actually be a seven-week-long event with a series of themed challenges, which means it could be even bigger than the Naruto collaboration.

Which Dragon Ball Z characters will get Fortnite skins?

There’s been no official confirmation from Epic Games yet, but according to leakers, there will be a total of four Dragon Ball skins coming to Fortnite with two of them being Goku and Vegeta.

That leaves two more skins that will be part of the crossover. A tweet shared on July 18 suggested that the third skin will be Beerus, leaving one more skin that’s currently unknown.

While this is all just speculation, it does seem likely that the fourth skin will be a female character, as the same thing happened with both Naruto collaborations. In that case, it could be Bulma.

Many fans had previously assumed that Gohan and Piccolo would get skins, as they’re the main characters in the latest Dragon Ball Super movie, but it doesn’t seem like that will be the case now.

Dragon Ball Z Kamehameha Mythic rumored for Fortnite

As well as the Dragon Ball skins, leakers have pointed to the existence of a Kamehameha Mythic weapon, which would presumably allow players to shoot the iconic blue power blast at enemy players.

It’s also been reported that there will be a special ‘stamina item that will alter your movement. These could reflect the capsules that are featured in the Dragon Ball anime, manga, and video games.
