Rejoice Dragon Ball fans, as your favorite characters are about to make their way to Epic Games’ popular Battle Royale title, Fortnite.
In a recent tweet, the long-rumored collaboration has been finally announced with a photo of a golden dragon with the caption “Speak. Name your wish.”, which seems to confirm that the entity in the image is Shenron from the iconic franchise.
Along with the confirmation, we also have a date of August 16, which will most likely be the day fans see the collaboration come to life on the Fortnite island.

Rumors about a Dragon Ball crossover surfaced online a couple of months ago, with details about characters like Goku being the next anime legend to fight with guns after Naruto Uzumaki, Sasuke Uchiha and many others from Naruto Shipudden joined Fortnite last year.
At the moment, it’s unclear whether the Dragon Ball collaboration will have the scale of the Naruto Shipudden crossover, as it brought in a ton of new outfits, items and many more. Most Fortnite collaborations involve introducing a singular character. However, there’s a very great chance that the popular Battle Royale title will add in multiple characters from the iconic anime franchise.
While Goku seems like the most obvious inclusion to Fortnite, fans are keeping their fingers crossed to see other characters like Vegeta, Gohan, Beerus and Frieza make their way to the Island as well. Along with the characters, it will be interesting to see which items from the series will make an impact, as Dragon Balls seem like the perfect addition to the game’s massive inventory.
With the developers at Epic Games having stayed silent about the collaboration so far, it sure looks like fans will have to wait until August 16 to hear more, even though it seems like they can’t wait any longer.
