Naruto has been an anticipated Fortnite collaboration for a while now - the content was leaked during the Epic vs Apple legal battle, like Ariana Grande, and now we're finally seeing the fruits of these leaks come to light. Naruto is here and we have all the skin information you need to know about.
UPDATE - Everything you need to know
Update 18.40 has dropped and Naruto - and his friends - are now available in Fortnite's Item Store.
The following is a run-down of all the new Skins and Bundles available...

It has also been leaked that a Mythic Naruto-styled Explosive Kunai weapon is coming to Fortnite soon - could Naruto be an NPC then?
Four Characters Coming
It looks like four characters in total are arriving in Fortnite with the Naruto collaboration. They are; Naruto, Kakashi, Sakura and Sasuke.
There are some standard cosmetics arriving with the set also like a back bling and harvesting tool but we'll learn more about the specifics on Tuesday.
Naruto Release Date
Naruto is currently set to be available on Tuesday, 16 November. While some of his cosmetics have already been seen in-game, the majority of the files will likely be uploaded as part of Fortnite Update 18.40.
It's quite strange that they have waited so long to release the skin given how its existence had leaked towards the end of Season 7. Then again, with how busy Season 8 has been on the story front, it makes sense to release him while things are a little quieter.
Throughout Season 8 we've seen hints and leaks further confirming that Naruto was on his way. First, there were the HeadbandS and HeadbandK files. Next up was the ramen dish that was identical to the one Naruto consumes in his Manga/Anime.
There were some rumblings that we may have to wait until Season 9 - or Chapter 3 - for the skin but these were quickly dismissed by those in the know. THere's no chance of a delay when Epic high-ups like Donald Mustard have gone out of their way to confirm the existence of the crossover happening.
Bundle & Price
It looks like there's going to be a very short turnaround between the official reveal of the Naruto skin/bundle and its release.
Once we have more details on what exactly will be included with the set - and its price - we'll update you.
