Fortnite is one of the most popular games right now for entertainment and gaming franchises to collab with. In the last year, Fortnite has been increasing the number of anime collabs that have been introduced to the game. First, it was Naruto. And now, the Dragon Ball series will be getting its own unique event inside the game, according to leaks.

The rumors of the new collab started around two weeks ago when Fortnite’s v21.20 update came out and featured an asset for a little capsule that heavily resembled something from the Dragon Ball series. Now, with the v21.30 update, more assets have been found, which point to specific skins that could be coming to Fortnite.

What is the release date for the Fortnite Dragon Ball Z Collab?

The Fortnite Dragon Ball Z collab is most likely coming on Aug. 16, 2022. In what has turned into the most liked tweet on the Fortnite Twitter, a date was given alongside a picture of Shenron.

So we can assume everything will be added after the regularly scheduled update on Tuesday.

What Skins are Coming to Fortnite?

The skins that are likely to be coming to the game include Vegeta, Goku, Beersy, and a fourth unnamed skin that will likely be female, according to German Fortnite data miner MidaRado. Some have speculated that this character could be Android 18, Android 21, or Bulma since they are all popular characters from the franchise.

Some information points to one of the gliders being the Attack Pod from the anime since there are patterns for it in the files.

What else is coming in the Fortnite Dragon Ball Z Collab?

More information has leaked about the collab too, and it seems as if Fortnite and Dragon Ball’s partnership goes way beyond a few cosmetics. According to various data miners, the collab will feature a location in the Battle Royale and Creative modes. There’s also talk of a potential new stamina item many attributed to the new capsules found weeks ago.

There could also be unique quests attributed to the event, just like there were with both Naruto collabs, although it’s unclear whether these will be like the Nindo Challenges or strictly for battle pass experience. According to leaks, players will earn rewards through these quests attributed to the Dragon Ball franchise.

Is the Kamehameha coming in the Dragon Ball Z Fortnite Collab?

Other leaks point to the potential for a new Mythic weapon in Fortnite when the collab drops. MidaRado points out that a “Kamehameha” weapon is in the game’s files, potentially pointing to the ability to use the attack inside the battle royale.
