Will Naruto return to Fortnite?  New skins, expected release date and more

Will Naruto return to Fortnite? Many gamers want this question answered and luckily there is good news. In a recent announcement, Epic confirmed their upcoming collaboration with the Naruto franchise.

Ever since the initial release of Fortnite x Naruto in Chapter 2 Season 8, players have been anticipating another collaboration that will feature additional characters from the franchise.

Fortnite Season 3 Chapter 3 is turning out to be one of the best seasons, collaboration-wise. The season boasts an impressive adventure with the Lucas movies that introduced Darth Vader to the game. Naruto’s upcoming collaboration will only add to the reputation of this season.

It was hinted that Naruto would return to Fortnite before the release of the new season. However, there was unsubstantiated speculation, which was further diluted amidst the talk about the upcoming Battle Pass being leaked beforehand. Players can rejoice as it has been officially confirmed that Naruto will be returning to Fortnite.


The Naruto franchise will return to Fortnite for a special collaboration

According to a recent tweet shared by the game’s official Twitter user, the upcoming collaboration will be called Fortnite x Naruto: Rivals and will be available on June 23, 2022.

It is speculated that the collaboration will bring new skins from the Naruto franchise.

The official announcement comes after speculation of the collaboration gathered steam. Leaks and rumors of Naruto returning to the game began to surface after a comic was spotted in Japan featuring Naruto characters and a Fortnite logo.

It is speculated that the upcoming collaboration will feature the characters Itachi, Hinata, Orochimaru, and Gaara. These skins will most likely be sold in a bundle, with the option to purchase an individual skin.

Shiina, a prominent leaker, shared on Twitter that Epic has been working on the Kawaii2 challenges. Kawai is the code name for Naruto’s challenges. Although these are speculations, they originate from a source who leaked the upcoming Battle Pass.

Recent events have lent some credence to the speculation, which now seems more plausible after Epic’s official announcement. Although it is speculated that the skins will follow the same route as the previously released Naruto skins.

It’s not completely absurd to speculate that the skins could actually be part of the bonus rewards for the Battle Pass, as Epic has yet to reveal the remaining pages of the bonus rewards.

RUMOR: Apparently the same person who posted the Battle Pass leak posted minutes later that another Naruto collab will be released in June. They posted this image as a preview of the collaboration. Epic recently started working on “Kawaii2” challenges “Kawaii” = Naruto Challenges codename https://t.co/oIZFdRzvsA

Since the announcement, there has been no update regarding the collaboration. It’s all speculation right now, and the upcoming collaboration could be very different from what has been rumored about it so far. If gamers remember, Fortnite hosted a challenge for skins. The same could be assumed for the next iteration.

Until Epic releases other updates, the speculation will only grow and it will once again be chaotic for players as to what to believe.

Given that the collaboration is only a few days away, it seems possible that Epic will tease something related to it. As the release date approaches, previous Naruto skin releases may once again fill the item shop.
