Goku may get a gun
A new crossover is headed to Epic Games’ Fortnite, and it will rock the dragon. After a ton of rumors, chatter, and speculation, it looks like Dragon Ball is arriving in Fortnite.
The Fortnite Twitter account posted this ominous image of Shenron, the wish-granting dragon, today. “Speak,” it says. “Name your wish…”
As for now, it’s not clear what exactly this entails. More info looks to be arriving next week, on August 16.

Speculation has run rampant over Dragon Ball arriving in Fortnite for a while. The leaker community around Epic’s battle royale discovered a bunch of files that pointed towards skins and cosmetics, even including the Capsule Corp logo.
Rock the dragon
As for who’s up, I think an obvious answer would be Goku. The same way you can’t do Naruto and not include the major players, Goku and likely Vegeta are sound bets. I’d like some less obvious characters too, like Piccolo, Bulma, or Yamcha, but those would probably be relegated to a second pack, much like some of the Naruto options were.
I’m hoping for some kind of in-game event as well, whether it’s another special map like the Hidden Leaf Village or possibly an in-game happening. King Kai willing, we get a Kamehameha weapon.
But I have to say, seeing some Dragon Ball content drop in Fortnite sounds pretty exciting. Growing up on Toonami instilled quite a bit of nostalgia for the series in me, and it was doubled, maybe even tripled, with the love letter that is Dragon Ball FighterZ.
So yes, I’m quite looking forward to August 16 and whatever it entails. Hopefully we’ll all be able to finally learn who would win in a fight, John Cena or Goku. We’ll just have to wait until next week to get that much closer to our answer.
