Fortnite is getting a Dragon Ball crossover
As Epic Games‘ gaming powerhouse of a Fortnite IP continues to expand into the world of pop culture, it was inevitable that more high-profile collaborations would occur.
Fortnite has already partnered with some of the biggest brands and IPs on the planet with crossovers tied to big Marvel characters like Spider-Man and Captain America, Star Wars characters like Darth Vader and Obi-Wan Kenobi and even a duo of Naruto collaborations.
This latest crossover was hinted at by the 21.20 update and sees the wildly popular Dragon Ball anime taking its time to crossover with the battle royale. Here’s what we know.

Dragon Ball is coming to Fortnite
The biggest indicator that Dragon Ball will make its way into Fortnite comes from Fortnite Leaker and a trusted news source HYPEREX who shared some of the files added to Fortnite with the 21.20 update, pointing out their similarity to Dragon Ball.
The item in question appears to be a model based on the capsules found in Dragon Ball, an item used to make items compact and easy to carry. The logo on the in-game module is similar but not identical to Dragon Ball’s Capsule Corp.
The most believable time for this crossover to happen is around the next Dragon Ball movie which is slated for release on Friday, August 19, 2022 in the United States and Canada. This would make the most sense for this crossover event, as it would then benefit both parties involved much more.
Outside of capsules, we don’t know what the crossover will entail, but a safe bet would be the inclusion of popular characters as outfits in the Item Shop.
