DRAGON BALL News: CERTAIN INFORMATION SUGGESTS THAT SHUEISHA SERIES LIKE DRAGON BALL AND NARUTO COULD REACH FORTNITE, AND EVEN HAVE A CROSSOVER
Not long ago, during the Epic Games vs. Apple, it came out that Fortnite could receive content from the Naruto series. However, new information suggests that it could include other Shueisha franchises, such as Dragon Ball.
It should be noted that this information at the moment is not official at all. But it comes from an informant who for some time has shared details of this Battle Royale before they are official.
DRAGON BALL AND NARUTO ARE TWO MAJOR SHUEISHA SERIES
This is @TweaBR, who shared the following message. “A reliable source has stated that Epic is working with a company called Shueisha to produce some anime collaborations,” was the first thing he said.
Later, he added, “The company has partial rights to several large anime, including Naruto and Dragon Ball.” Here we would like to say that this informant may know a lot about Epic’s Battle Royale.
But when it comes to Shueisha, we highlight that it is one of the largest manga publishers in Japan. It does not have “partial” rights, but rather grants them to other companies to make anime and various products of its franchises.
In addition to the series mentioned above, he handles One Piece, My Hero Academia, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, Fist of the North Star, Yu-Gi-Oh !, Gintama and many more. So it cannot be taken lightly.
THE CONTENT OF BOTH SERIES WOULD BE WELL RECEIVED IN FORTNITE
But getting back to the topic, this opens the door for a crossover between Naruto and Dragon Ball in Fortnite. Sure, it all depends on how things are handled. Despite the popularity of both series, collaborations are not that common, but it can be the case.
For example, in the case of the adventures of young Uzumaki, when Ubisoft worked on Naruto: Rise of a Ninja, they were able to create Rabuto, a very funny rabbid in this character’s costume.
However, when the rights expired, he stopped using it. But the temporality of the Fortnite collaborations, which constantly renews its content, would allow content from Dragon Ball, Naruto or any other Shueisha series.
It will be necessary to see if what @TweaBR says is true. As we mentioned before, for now there is nothing official. But such information cannot be entirely ruled out. You have to keep an eye out.
