Dragon Ball Characters Invade Fortnite in New Collaboration
Fortnite is no stranger to anime collaborations, including past hook-ups with the likes of Naruto. The latest is even more super-powered, because Dragon Ball is officially on the island. In addition to throwing Goku, Vegeta, Bulma and Beerus into the mix as character skins, the crossover features a special Dragon Ball island that goes live on August 19 and more.
Check out the trailer below, and read on for an overview of what’s available:
- Dragon Ball Item Shop: Players can head to Fortnite’s Item Shop to suit up as fan-favorite characters Goku, Vegeta, Bulma, and Beerus. The collaboration also offers a Dragon Ball collection of Back Blings, Pickaxes, Gliders, and Emotes such as The Charging Up Emote and The Fusion Emote.
- Power Unleashed Quests: A new “Dragon Ball: Power Unleashed!” tab has arrived inside of Fortnite, full of limited-time Quests and rewards. Complete the seven sets of Quests, collect all seven Dragon Balls, and players will score the Shenron Glider.
- Battle With Versus Boards: Special for the Dragon Ball collaboration, Versus Boards pit players against one another in a fight to be the Island’s strongest. Both players must opt into a battle by interacting with a Board on the Island. Once a rival is chosen, players each will be revealed on the other’s map and have five minutes to defeat their opponent.
- Go Even Further Beyond in Battle Royale: Players can wield the powers of Goku with new gameplay items in Fortnite. The Kamehameha will let anyone who wields it launch a devastating energy beam at foes, while the Nimbus Cloud (Kintoun) will let players take flight around the Island.

Players who earn 3 Kamehameha elimination points will be awarded the Beerus Eating Emoticon.
