On August 12, the official Fortnite Twitter Account teased the game’s release dragonball collaboration with an image of a glowing golden dragon on the game board with the words ‘Speak. Name your wish…’ accompanied by a confirmation for August 16, 2022.

In the series, pods are devices that can shrink and store objects of various sizes – from helicopters to entire cities, which could suggest they could be used to summon in-game vehicles, or function similarly to the now removed item, the Port-A-Fort.

Although the exact details of the content brought by the update are still unclear, the Twitter user leaks @MidaRado indicate that Goku will join the game’s cast of over a hundred crossover characters alongside Vegeta, Beerus, and an unidentified fourth female character labeled in the game files as “Barium” – presumably Bulma’s character.

Other leaks suggest that beyond the usual array of player skins and cosmetics, there will be a new Creative Mode event, seven weeks of quests (one for each dragon ball, perhaps?) , perks for the new Kame House location, as well as, perhaps most excitingly, a mythic ability that allows players to use the iconic energy blast attack – the Kamehameha.
