Fortnite overlaps with some of the biggest franchises to date, from Marvel superheroes to various video game series and Star Wars. Given the success of Fortnite in this massive crossover event, it's no surprise that the popular Battle Royale is clearly poised to continue the trend. According to a recent leak, Fortnite will soon feature some of the most recognizable characters in anime history. Fortnite Dataminer Twea says a "trusted source" says Epic Games is working with Shueisha on an anime crossover. This is important because Shuisha owns Shonen Jump magazine, which publishes manga based on Bleach, Demon Slayer, Dragon Ball, My Hero Academia, Naruto, One Piece, and more. Perhaps this real deal between Epic Games and Shueisha could lead to the departure of one of these traits with Fortnite, though nothing has been confirmed at the time of this writing, so fans need to control their expectations. It's easy to see how interesting the Fortnite anime crossover is. The variety of anime franchises that Shonen Jump has access to could inspire lots of new scenery for the Fortnite Battle Royale fortress map, and there's plenty of material in there to really transport all of this season's content. There may be skins based on Deco, Goku, Lufi, Naruto and various supporting characters from their respective franchises. This will be a content goldmine for Fortnite and potentially attract fans of the series who ignore Epics BR. As anime characters find their way into Fortnite, it will be interesting to see what they look like. It's possible to adapt them to Fortnite's basic art style, but it's also possible for them to keep their animated cartoon look. Rick Sanchez's Fortnite skin is an example, although there is some concern that such skins are too easy to spot and therefore could easily put players using them at a disadvantage. When the Fortnite anime skins and crossover may find their way into the game remains to be seen. Fortnite is still in Season 7 of Chapter 2 and is not expected to make the switch to Season 8 in a few months. It's possible that Season 8 will focus on anime crossovers, but it's also possible that Fortnite fans will have to wait a little longer to see anything significant from this leak.
