Fortnite is finally collaborating with Dragon Ball Z after the rumors about a potential crossover have been in the air for months. Check out the release date for Fortnite x Dragon Ball Z crossover, teaser, skins, and everything else here.
The most popular battle royale in the world is known to have special crossovers and treat their fans. However, it’s also known to keep information hidden until the last moment and surprise everyone with a collaborative effort.
After the success of Fortnite’s crossover with Naruto, its collaboration with another anime franchise was imminent. What could be better than crossing over with Dragon Ball, possibly the most popular anime out there? It’s finally happening next week.
Fortnite x Dragon Ball Crossover Date Officially Announced
The official Fortnite account on Twitter has posted a teaser confirming the collaboration with Dragon Ball, likely to promote the upcoming Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero movie launching in theaters. The date has been announced and it’s two days ahead of the western release date of the upcoming film.
The Fortnite x Dragon Ball crossover will officially begin on Tuesday, August 16, 2022. A start time is not revealed just yet but the event will possibly kick off at midnight. Fortnite will share the start time for the crossover as we move further near the release date.

For now, you can sit back and wait for August 16 to arrive. Meanwhile, you can collect the cool skins available in the game as part of the recent Rocket League crossover.
Fortnite x Dragon Ball Teaser: What did it reveal?
The teaser shared by the Fortnite account to announce the Dragon Ball crossover features a silhouette of Shenron, the eternal dragon, summoned over the Reality Tree. Shenron is the massive green dragon that people in the series summon by collecting Dragon Balls.
The text in the tweet says “Speak. Name your wish…August 16, 2022.” It is the start date of the upcoming crossover between Fortnite and one of the most popular anime franchises.
Other than that, Fortnite didn’t reveal anything else. There’s a lot that still needs to be revealed. We will get to know that in the coming days as we near the announced date. We will keep informing you once any information is available.
Fortnite x Dragon Ball Crossover Skins & Bundles
Fortnite didn’t reveal which skins and bundles are coming as part of the Dragon Ball crossover yet. However, leaks coming from the data miners from July have given us an idea of what to expect from the upcoming collaboration.
Previous leaks have revealed the presence of Master Roshi’s Kame House in the game files featured as a new lobby background. Fans have also spotted four potential skins including Goku, Vegeta, Beerus, and a female character which could be Bulma, Videl, or Pan, as part of the upcoming crossover.
Attack Balls, the Round Spaceshipsin the anime used to traverse through galaxies, were also seen in the leaks. They could be a potential cosmetic option for gliders. A Fortnite Creative update for a new Stamina Prop had the appearance of a Capsule Corp item.
Kamehameha is coming to Fortnite
Another leak hints toward a possible mythic item that lets players perform a Kamehameha in the battleground. Kamehameha is one of the most powerful moves in the Dragon Ball series and also Goku’s signature move.
Being able to hit Kamehameha on your opponents in Fortnite would be none less than ecstasy for anime fans. We are also expecting Nimbus, the yellow cloud on which Goku traveled in his childhood, to make an appearance in the crossover.
That’s all we know about the Fortnite x Dragon Ball crossover coming next week. More information will be available soon as we near the release date. Stay tuned.
