Fortnite Season 8 New Characters

We expect a fair amount of new characters to be added during Fortnite Season 8. Naruto is confirmed but what about other highly requested icons like Goku?

It could also be that the Operation Sky Fire event introduces some new original characters that will release soon. The Trespasser Elite Skin was recently released for those who are able to meet its streaming requirements. It will eventually be released in the Item Shop but likely not until this weeks event is over.

New Skins for Season 8

One skin that has been mega-popular during Fortnite Season 7 is Birdie. She's only been available a few times but the community goes wild whenever she's in the store. Perhaps some more looks and emotes for Birdie are long overdue.

We get it Joey, you have abs and tattoos.

Wrath is another character that fits in well at this time of year. The Spooky boi will likely see a revival around Halloween during this years Fortnitemares event. There are also rumours of a Mummy skin coming soon, this would tie in with the event also.

Alongside a new season, we're sure to see some NPC's undergo some changes. Joey might put a shirt on, Sunny may go full punk rock with a mohawk, who knows. We're still unsure what the slate of NPCs will look like for Season 8. We may have a better idea once the Operation Sky Fire event is over.
