Another thrilling anime crossover is slated to hit Fortnite this week as Epic Games teams up with the popular anime series, Jujutsu Kaisen. This news, officially announced last week, revealed that exclusive Jujutsu Kaisen-themed skins would be up for grabs in the Fortnite in-game item shop this Tuesday.
The Anticipation and the Surprise
In an exciting turn of events, the Fortnite data mining community initially leaked this information. However, the prevailing expectation was that Fortnite's next anime alliance would involve One Piece. As a result, many renowned leakers dispelled these rumors before the official Jujutsu Kaisen collaboration announcement.
While some One Piece fans might be left feeling disappointed, Jujutsu Kaisen enthusiasts are eagerly anticipating the rollout of this collaboration. The expectation is that it will introduce a range of new skins and cosmetics to the game.
Jujutsu Kaisen Skins: Launch Details
The Fortnite x Jujutsu Kaisen collaboration is set to launch with the v25.30 update, dropping on Tuesday, August 8th at 4 AM ET. To implement this new update, Epic Games will momentarily bring down the game servers for roughly 1-2 hours. Following this, players will be prompted to download the new patch, and the much-anticipated Jujutsu Kaisen skins will be available for purchase from the in-game item shop.
Leaked Skins and Cosmetics
While Epic Games has not yet confirmed the exact skins included in the Jujutsu Kaisen collaboration, leaks from the Fortnite community offer some insights. The purported leak suggests the following skin bundles will be part of the collaboration:
- Nobara Kugisaki Bundle
- Megumi Fushiguro Bundle
- Satoru Gojo Bundle
Speculations are also rife that Yuji Itadori might be part of the game's battle pass. If that's the case, players won't be able to obtain these skins through the in-game item shop. However, official confirmation on this point is yet to come.
