The Naruto x Fortnite update 18.40 is live with other Exciting Additions
Now that speculation about Nartuo’s existence has finally been confirmed, we can finally say goodbye to an era in Fortnite.
They were right: Fortnite has launched a Naruto-themed Creative Hub with its own skins, cosmetics and other products, as well as a dedicated Creative Hub.
Naruto Uzumaki, as well as Sasuke, Sakura, and Kakashi, are now playable characters in the game. That’s a lot of personalities, and you can even ride Kurama, the Nine-Tailed Beast, to the island.
Paper bomb kunai, snake sword, demon wind shuriken back bling, and several ninja-themed tasks are also being added to the game. A full-scale replica of Hidden Leaf Village is also available in Creative mode, a degree of effort few other crossovers have ever achieved.
If you have no idea who Naruto is or what he stands for, then the v18.40 update isn’t going to signify much to you.
The fact that this is the final match of the current season, as well as the current chapter of Fortnite, is reason enough to celebrate. There have been rumblings that Chapter 3 will begin sooner than expected and feature a whole new map.
It’s long been speculated that Chapter 3 is in the works, but the latest patch notes are full of references to Season X of Chapter 1 — the last one before the move to Chapter 2.
Season X’s Brute mechs, as well as the shopping cart vehicle, will be returning to the game in the near future. According to rumour, the Cube Queen’s cube will likewise change into a pyramid at the end of the chapter.
Everything points to Fortnite Chapter 3 coming before the end of the year, even if Christmas still seems like an unusual time to flip over.
