After months of rumors, one confirmation, and lots and lots of teasing from Epic Games, Naruto is finally available in Fortnite. The boy ninja who will become the Hokage now has a Fortnite skin along with his friends Sasuke, Sakura and Kakashi.
It’s one of Fortnite’s biggest drops in the past year, with four characters and several cosmetics available in the Fortnite item shop. Funnily enough, this is also Fortnite’s first crossover with the anime franchise, showing that even the battle royal juggernaut isn’t safe from the web.
Take a look below at the new skins or watch the trailer above.
All in all, it’s a pretty faithful adaptation. Thankfully, these anime characters don’t look like the monstrosities of Extraterrestrial Valley like the other cell-shaded skins from Fortnite.
Except for Sasuke for some reason, every skin also comes with a variant. He just gets his Shippuden-era outfit. See them in the gallery below.
While Sasuke doesn’t get the secondary outfit, he does get the sword of the Kusanagi pickaxe.
Other Fortnite x Naruto cosmetics include:
- Kurama Glider
- summon jutsu emote
- ramen break emote
- shinobi teamwork loading screen
- Pizza Eating Jutsu Loading Screen
- Pakkun Back Bling: Kakashi’s smallest Ninken.
- Demon Wind Shuriken Back Bling: A shuriken with the dreaded curved blade.
- Hidden Leaf Cloak Back Bling: A warm cloak suitable for going on missions.
- Scroll Back Bling: The Techniques Involved
- Black Ops Sword Pickaxe: The sword used by the Black Ops.
- Kunai Pickaxe (with Black Variant Style): A sharp weapon preferred by shinobi.
- Snake Sword: Sasuke’s beloved sword.
- Hidden Scythe: The scythe of choice for curse rituals.
A personal favorite is easily the Kurama Glider (seen above), which is based on the nine-tailed fox demon that Naruto assumed as an infant. It’s a long story, but who doesn’t want to surf on a giant monster?
As is usually the case, Epic is selling all of these in different bundles, with Naruto x Kakashi, Sasuke x Sakura and then the Shinobi Gear bundle coming with different cosmetics.
Fortnite x Naruto: Everything else you need to know
As part of the Fortnite x Naruto crossover, Epic is making a few changes to the game. First, Kakashi is being added as an NPC who will complete the quest for a new punch card. Secondly, the paper bomb kunai is being added as a new weapon in battle royale matches. We’ll have to wait and see if this changes Fortnite’s meta in any meaningful way.
Finally, in Creative Mode the hub has been changed to Hidden Leaf Village AKA Konohagakure, Naruto’s hometown. Check out the gallery below to see.
