It’s finally happening: Dragon Ball is coming to Fortnite. The official Fortnite Twitter account teased a telling image hinting at an eventual crossover with the iconic anime. This would make Dragon Ball the latest anime brand to make the jump into the popular online game.

The image shows the great dragon Shenron glowing outline manifesting above a grove of trees. The text of the Fortnite Dragon Ball teaser echoes Shenron’s prompt for the collector of the Dragon Balls to make a wish. Finally, it promises new developments next week, on August 16, 2022. A reaction by the official Twitter account of Toei Animation (which animates Dragon Ball Z, among other series) seals the deal.
The exact contents of the Fortnite / Dragon Ball crossover are as yet not officially confirmed. If the crossover with Naruto Shippuden is any indication, though, expect several cosmetic packs to be released in the Item Shop. Costumes evoking major Dragon Ball characters like Goku and Vegeta are a given, as well as back bling, gliders, emotes, loading screens, and more. A bespoke event is also likely in the cards, with quests or Dragon Ball-inspired mechanics.
Fortnite is available on mobile devices, PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch. Epic will reveal more about the Fortnite x Dragon Ball crossover on August 16, 2022.
