In honor of Dragon Ball’s first appearance in Fortnite, the developer has prepared a set of missions with valuable rewards for gamers. In fact, there may be a special event skin up for grabs if you play your cards well.

Naruto, one of Shonen Jump’s four flagship anime series, served as the inspiration for the first skin in Fortnite’s new Anime Series of Skins. In point of fact, the item shop has already received two rounds of new skins for Naruto to choose from.
Therefore, it is not surprising that Goku and the rest of the group have made the transition to Fortnite. As soon as they are added, Dragon Ball will become the official second anime out of Shonen’s Big Four to participate in the game.
