Fans have begged Fortnite for a Naruto skin collaboration over the past few months. Thanks to dataminers, we know when Naruto is coming to Fortnite.
Naruto is one of the most popular anime out there. Whether or not you are an anime fan, you know or have probably heard of Naruto Uzumaki. And it looks like the Seventh Hokage is coming to Fortnite.
It makes sense that one of the most popular cartoons intersects with one of the most popular video games. And it’s a crossover that Fortnite fans have craved. But when will the crossover take place?
Since it was revealed through court documents that Fortnite was planning a collaboration with Naruto, players have been anticipating his release. Now, it looks like Fortnite is going to release the long-awaited Naruto skins in less than a month.

Leaker details the new Mythic Shuriken and the Creative Hub
HYPEX is one of the most popular Fortnite dataminers, and that’s because they’re a very credible source of information. Hopefully this stays true, as HYPEX tweeted that Naruto will be added on November 16.
He also claims that Naruto will come with a Hidden Leaf Village creative hub. The skins and the hub are slated for release on November 16 at 2 p.m. UTC / 9 a.m. ET. We have also seen various Naruto assets leaked by HYPEX.
These perks include a mythical explosive shuriken, a Naruto boss NPC, and a bowl of ramen identical to the one in the series. Additionally, HYPEX found two encrypted skins in the files that are said to be part of the collaboration named âHeadbandKâ and âHeadbandSâ.
At the moment, that’s all we know about the Naruto x Fortnite collaboration. If what HYPEX says is true, the Naruto skin will be in Fortnite very soon. And when that happens, we’ll update this story with price, release date, and Mythic Weapon info.
