Rumors, Leaks and What to Expect
Goku is one of the most popular characters in all forms of media, and Fortnite knows it. They are always ready to bring these kinds of characters into the game. That’s why they have skins like Mandalorian, Iron Man, Venom, Batman and many more. Fortnite is still on the hunt for the next great character to step into the game.
Fortnite hasn’t made a foray into the anime world yet, but it looks like they intend to do so at some point, making Goku a good choice.
Goku is coming to Fortnite: everything players need to know
Naruto is a very popular character who is coming to Fortnite. It was originally supposed to be part of the Season 8 Chapter 2 Battle Pass, but has yet to arrive. With Naruto more than likely on the horizon, Fortnite could easily continue into the anime world and bring Goku as well.
Anime itself is a growing field. What was previously more relevant in Japanese culture has now become a global phenomenon. Everyone watches anime, and Naruto and Dragonball Z are two of the most popular. Even people who don’t watch any anime know who Naruto and Goku are.
Goku was recently rumored to be the last character in Super Smash Bros., but was ultimately defeated by Kingdom Hearts’ Sora. This is not very pleasant for Goku fans, as they have been eagerly awaiting his entry into the video game world.
Ultimately, Fortnite is probably a better arena for most of these types of characters anyway. Fortnite doesn’t need to develop a set of moves or special skills for the characters they bring. It’s purely cosmetic, which makes it a lot easier to integrate characters like Goku.
Although it failed to make it to the list of the greatest fighting game in history, there is still a precise shot that it joins the most important battle royale game in history. Naruto will likely be the first anime character to join Fortnite, but the floodgates will be open after that. Goku will eventually get away with it.
There are currently no leaks or rumors that its arrival is imminent, and Fortnite may never add it, but that would be surprising. Considering its popularity, it is a great bet to happen eventually.
