One of the most popular collaborations to have come to Fortnite is recent months is Dragon Ball. Kicking off in August of last year, the event brought Son Goku and Vegeta amongst other characters to the Island and also added the since-vaulted Kamehameha and Nimbus Cloud items. Those who missed out on the collab last time around will be pleased to know that the anime series is boarding the Battle Bus once again starting from today.
Alongside the return of the two aforementioned items and the series-themed 'Dragon Ball Adventure Island', the collab also brings with it new Weekly Quests and Rewards as well as the game debut of Son Gohan and Piccolo outfits. There are also new Dragon Ball emotes, which you can see a teaser of in the following tweet:
For a more detailed look at everything that is coming to the game as a part of the event, you can head over to the recent Fortnite blog post or check out the following from Epic Games:
Throughout each match in Fortnite Battle Royale and Zero Build, the Kamehameha and Nimbus Cloud (Kintoun) items will fall from the sky in capsules from Capsule Corp. These two items will remain in Battle Royale and Zero Build until v23.40.
DRAGON BALL ADVENTURE ISLAND
Made by creator team Vysena Studios, the Dragon Ball Adventure Island features iconic locations from the show to explore as well as the open PvP battle arena. Dragon Ball Adventure Island can be accessed from either the Discover screen or island code 5642-8525-5429.
NEW QUESTS & REWARDS
Starting January 31 at 9 AM ET, complete a Dragon Ball-themed Weekly Quest on this island to unlock the Orange Piccolo Spray. Starting February 7 at 9 AM ET, complete another Dragon Ball-themed Weekly Quest to unlock the Gohan Beast Spray!
ITEM SHOP UNLEASHED
While wielding great powers on the Battle Royale Island or collecting Dragon Balls in Dragon Ball Adventure Island, venture as Dragon Team members Son Gohan or Piccolo. These new Outfits — and their matching accessories — are available in the Item Shop starting now!
The event has landed in Fortnite today and looks to be sticking around at least until the upcoming v.23.40 update.
Will you be picking up any of the new goodies? Blast your thoughts in the comments below!
LOL why are they gonna include Gohan Beast and Orange Piccolo as sprays and not styles for their skins? Vegeta and Goku had four forms and these guys only have two...oh well. They look really good nonetheless. I'm really really glad that they brought back the Dragon Ball map items; they're so fun to use.
Quick correction for the article:
"There is also, of course, the return of the Dragon Ball emotes, which you can see a teaser of in the following tweet:"
Those aren't returning emotes; those are emotes exclusive to the Gohan and Piccolo skins respectively that allow them to power up/down (AKA transform between their two styles). None of the older Dragon Ball items have returned to the shop, at least not yet.
I don't play Fortnite, but I'm always happy to see Piccolo get representation! They could have done something incredibly stupid, like add Yamcha and Bulma... Though, to be fair, Bulma would make more sense carrying a gun around.
I always enjoy seeing Gohan and Piccolo get more love. I loved the latest movie because the focus was on them instead of the usual Goku and Vegeta show.
Won my first match today in about a week using Nimbus and the kamehameha wave combo. 👍
@KayFiOS She’s in lol
@Thwomp_Stomper That just goes to show how little I pay attention to Fortnite lol
Glad she gets to fight and actually stand a chance in something other than that dumb asymmetrical multiplayer game.
are they going to run around with guns, like Spider Man and Batman do?
If so, this is just a wet fart
They look so good, I’m content with just bulma, and I just got the MHA skins, but they would definitely be a must have for me!
Piccolo is the best DBZ character IMO.
@KayFiOS Yamcha at the start was a bandit and if I recall correctly he also carried a gun around so paradoxically he'd make more sense than Goku, Vegeta, Gohan, Piccolo etc.
That said, happy to see Piccolo (and Gohan) get representation, too!
One is Piccolo. Is that Gohan? I am not familiar with Dragon ball.
