The work of data miners and teaser spotters has hinted at an upcoming Dragon Ball crossover coming to Fortnite. With a litany of leaks and teasers, such as Master Roshi’s island making an appearance on the map and Super Saiyan emotes being found in the game files, it is hard to deny that the Dragon Ball crossover is indeed happening. Thanks to one keen Twitter user, we might know when we’ll be seeing it.
Twitter user HYPEX, who has proven time and again to be a reliable source for Fortnite leaks and is in fact responsible for the discussion on the Dragon Ball crossover, made an observation that may suggest the release date of the crossover. As HYPEX points out on his Twitter post, the vacation of most Epic employees ends on August 8th, which means that a new patch should come between August 9th and 16th.
What does this mean for the Dragon Ball crossover? As HYPEX explains, the presence of the leaked Dragon Ball items in Fortnite’s game files means that the next major patch should contain the crossover event and everything added by it. By connecting the dots, we can see that August 9th-16th is a likely release date for the upcoming Dragon Ball content.
From what we know about the Dragon Ball crossover so far, we can expect to see Goku and Vegeta added to the game as skins. They will also come with two skin-specific emotes, which allow them to transform into their Super Saiyan forms. Hopefully, some Dragon Ball-related weapons will be coming to Fortnite as well, such as a usable Kamehameha or Ki attack that turns the Fortnite map into an explosive Dragon Ball battlefield.
