In a massive crossover event, Epic Games’ Fortnite has finally added the Dragon Ball universe complete with characters and special items pulled straight from Universe 7.
There appears to be no license too far out of Epic Games’ range to mash up with the huge battle royale juggernaut Fortnite as they’ve now managed to bring Dragon Ball to the huge title. This makes it possible to have John Cena or Travis Scott face off against Spider-man and Son Goku from Dragon Ball, a sentence that couldn’t be said before. The full trailer reveal can be seen below.
Complete with transformation sequences, it is also possible to have Fortnite characters hit opponents with the signature Kamehameha blast from the anime series. The event screen as seen in the game menu also looks like its very own battle pass screen complete with potential cosmetic item unlocks, rewards and bonuses during the event.
