Is Fortnite making a Naruto skin?

Notorious Twitter leaker Shiina shared the news that there is a huge chance that fans of Fortnite could be seeing Naruto added to the game in some capacity.

The user posted on 31st July 2021: “According to a new public post by the moderators of r/FortniteLeaks, the source who provided them with information about Naruto has now 100% confirmed that Epic was able to obtain the rights for Naruto.

“Epic Games is apparently now trying to include him in the next Battle Pass.

Shiina continued: “I can’t personally fully confirm it this time, but the Reddit source seems trustworthy.

“Another important thing: Starting now, I will probably slow down a bit with insider leaks on this account.

“I may post something here and there, but not at the pace I have been lately.”

Shiina went on to confirm this on 7th September 2021 after citing the Chief Creative Officer of Epic Games Donald Mustard in a conversation with Ex Candywing.

So yes, Naruto will be in Fortnite for Season 8. Gear up, anime fans. This will be a good one!
