Fortnite is about to receive an awesome collaboration with Jujutsu Kaisen, the anime and manga that exploded into popularity a few years ago. According to new reports (which have since been verified by prominent Fortnite dataminers), select Jujutsu Kaisen items including skins for Nobara Kugisaki, Megumi Fushiguro, and Satoru Gojo will be added to the battle royale game soon.
As reported by Video Games Chronicle, at least three skins from Jujutsu Kaisen will be coming to Fortnite. The original leak was posted by Twitter user BarbieharpFN before being verified by other Fortnite dataminers as true. It’s unclear when players can expect these items to drop but given the history of Fortnite leaks, these files are usually datamined a week or two before it’s officiall announced and launched in the game.
This marks another anime collaboration with Fortnite as it previously featured crossovers with other popular anime such as Dragon Ball, My Hero Academia and Naruto. In most cases, skins based on select characters from each series were added into the game. We can expect a similar amount of content to arrive for the upcoming Jujutsu Kaisen crossover.
Jujutsu Kaisen is a Japanese manga series created by Gege Akutami. It began serialisation in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in 2018, later receiving an anime adaptation by MAPPA in 2020. The official story synopsis provided by MyAnimeList reads:
“Idly indulging in baseless paranormal activities with the Occult Club, high schooler Yuuji Itadori spends his days at either the clubroom or the hospital, where he visits his bedridden grandfather. However, this leisurely lifestyle soon takes a turn for the strange when he unknowingly encounters a cursed item. Triggering a chain of supernatural occurrences, Yuuji finds himself suddenly thrust into the world of Curses—dreadful beings formed from human malice and negativity—after swallowing the said item, revealed to be a finger belonging to the demon Sukuna Ryoumen, the King of Curses.”
Season 2 of Jujutsu Kaisen is currently airing.
