Fortnite has revealed all the characters coming in the Fortnite X Naruto: Rivals set
Fortnite is bringing back Naruto for a new season of Fortnite action. This will be the second time the two franchises have crossed paths, having done so previously in 2021, when Fortnite brought over the first part of the Fortnite X Naruto crew.
Now, for the second set, Fortnite X Naruto: Rivals, fans can expect four brand new outfits and characters never before seen in the game. This list includes the characters of Hinata, Gaara, Itachi, and Orochimaru.
That’s not all, but they’re coming in with a bunch of items, which will be out on June 24. This includes three back blings, two pick axes, four characters (two costumes a piece), two emotes, and one wrap.
The first four characters should be returning as well with this latest addition to the item store.
Fortnite x Naruto’s first go-around was a major success
It turns out that fans like Naruto. Go figure, it’s only one of the most popular and long-running mangas and animes of all time, so why wouldn’t fans want to see it in Fortnite? The first four characters to be brought in during the first go in late 2021 included Naruto Uzumaki, Sasuke Uhiha, Kakasahi Hatake, and Sakura Haruno.
This set of characters will likely cost the same amount as the first sets, which were sold individually and in packs of two. These cost 1,500 B-Bucks individually or 2,100 and 2,200 in sets of two.
The cost for the new set of characters should be largely the same but don’t expect all four of the new characters to come in one set or all eight. That’s not how they do things usually.
For instance, when Blanca and Sakura were announced for the Fortnite franchise as part of the Street Fighter cross-promotion, they were sold alongside past characters Guile and Cammy and Ryu and Chun-Li.
They were sold individually or in sets of two, but all six were not sold together.
