The Naruto Fortnite crossover has become a popular phenomenon among gamers. In fact, both Naruto and Fortnite enjoy their respective successes. Both are highly popular among the audience. In fact, Naruto has been an award-winning manga. In its anime format also, Naruto enjoys a large fan base. However, back in 2011, the readers of Guinness World Records Gamer’s Edition voted Naruto as the 29th-top video game character of all time. Therefore, it is clear that Naruto is highly popular and successful in every aspect of entertainment.
On the other hand, Fortnite is a highly popular video game. This Epic Games creation has won multiple awards since its release in 2017. Fortnite Battle Royale has become a great financial success for the Epic Games. As a result of the growing player count, the developers separated the teams between Save the World and Battle Royale to provide better support for both modes. In fact, by the end of 2019, the total revenue for Fortnite reached more than $9 billion.
So, it is clear that both Naruto and Fortnite have been highly successful in their own ways. Therefore, we can also expect that any Naruto Fortnite crossover will be equally popular. Epic Games seems to have already realised this simple fact as on 21st June they announced that more Naruto characters are on their way to the Fortnite universe. Follow the link to see the tweet:
The event was active from June 23 to July 7. During this period, Itachi Uchiha, Orochimaru, Gaara, Mrs Uzumaki and Hinata Hyuga were available in the item shop of Fortnite. Continue reading the article to know more about the Naruto Fortnite crossover.

Naruto Fortnite: More About the Contents
Apart from the above-mentioned contents, the new addition to the Naruto Fortnite crossover also features alternate outfits for every character. In the game we find Gaara sporting his “I pay bills now” Fifth Kazegage uniform and Hinata is her soccer mom Boruto: Naruto the Next Generation outfit.
The game also includes emotes of the Naruto theme. Moreover, you can also unlock Akatsuki Wrap and the Manda Glider. However, to do that you will have to complete some quests assigned to every character. This indeed is a treat for both Naruto fans and Fortnite fans. Moreover, crosslinking the two popular elements has resulted in a huge craze in the game. The content is absolutely breathtaking as we see our favourite Naruto characters donning the battlefield of Fortnite.
However, Fortnite’s Naruto Rivals is not the first game to feature the Naruto Fortnite crossover. Epic Games announced the first crossover in November, last year. It saw the arrival of Team 7: Naruto, Sasuke, Sakura, and Kakashi. In fact, this crossover became the source of hilarious memes.
Therefore, it is not wrong to have similar expectations from the new game. So, if you see video crop-ups of Sasuke and Itachi bonding by wiping out other people’s families, Orochimaru committing war crimes, or, Naruto using the Rasen-Gun, do not get surprised. It is almost like two titans teaming up together. Therefore, the hope around the game is more than expected. Moreover, this very move by Epic Games is also likely to draw in new players of Fortnite, who have been dedicated Naruto fans. Indeed, Epic Games means business!
