New Fortnite x Dragon Ball Super Promotions Appear Across Japan

One of the biggest collaborations to happen in Fortnite is just a day away. Based on community feedback and the number of likes the official trailer garnered on Twitter, it’s safe to say the hype is surreal. However, it seems that a small twist has come into play.

An image found in the city of Shinjuku, Japan shows that the collaboration with Dragon Ball is for the latest ‘Super’ series. While leakers have long anticipated this to be the case, this is the first confirmation of the same. The moment makes a lot of sense Dragon Ball Super: Superhero will debut worldwide on August 26.

This new information will alter some things that players expect to see in the collaboration. While nothing can be confirmed yet, there is speculation as to what players can expect to see soon in Fortnite.


Dragon Ball Super is one day away from debuting in Fortnite

Looking at the information currently available, fans and leakers are pretty sure that Goku will be getting an Ultra Instinct style. Since this technique debuted in dragon ball superit would make sense for him to appear in the game.

Much like Eddie Brock and Venom’s outfit/skin, Ultra Instinct can be transient in nature. If this is true, he will be accessible via a built-in emote that will allow players to switch between ultra and normal form.

However, according to leaker HYPEX, the collaboration will feature an emote that will allow Goku and Vegeta to transform into Super Saiyan style. Due to this information, it cannot be said for sure if “Super Saiyan” is used as a placeholder for Ultra Instinct or if Goku will have multiple styles to choose from.

Given the importance of the character to the franchise, the latter is probably true. In addition to styles, players can expect to see numerous cosmetics for characters. This could also include the turtle’s school uniform.


When will the Fortnite x Dragon Ball Super collaboration be released?

While the collaboration is scheduled to kick off on August 16, there seems to be some confusion regarding the exact timing of things. According to HYPEX, the new Battle Bus, cosmetics/items, and challenges are likely to go live five hours after the downtime.

Fortnite x Dragon Ball Z content (bus, items, and challenges) will most likely drop 5 hours after downtime, at the time of content updates. And that’s because the current summer bus will be replaced on the 16th at 1 pm UTC (9 am ET). Unless Epic changes this at the last minute! https://t.co/OROCXmjr5A

If the downtime starts at 4:00am ET, the collaboration will go live at 9:00am Since Epic Games have had a lot of time to work on this update and the content, things should run smoothly . However, should problems occur, things could be delayed by an hour at most.

Once the collaboration begins, it will continue until the end of Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3. Players will have one month to purchase cosmetics from the Item Shop and complete any crossover-related challenges. With roughly 24 hours until things kick off, readers can expect to see more leaks soon.
