Fortnite could be getting its next anime collaboration with one of the biggest properties around — Dragon Ball Z.

New leaks have surfaced hinting that Fortnite could be getting a Dragon Ball collaboration, possibly to tie-in to the release of the new movie, Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero. The leaks come via known Fortnite leaker HYPEX and content creator Creeper, who pointed out that the collab could be happening around mid-late August, given that the movie's release date is Aug. 19 in the US.

According to HYPEX, Epic Games have added a new Creative Stamina Prop which looks suspiciously similar to the Capsules used in Dragon Ball. The prop even features an image that looks identical to the Capsule Corp logo.

While this isn't much to go on, the similarities are undeniable. However, this doesn't suggest what the full extent of the collaboration could be. Granted players probably won't settle for anything less than themed Outfits and cosmetics, but it's hard to picture Goku or Vegeta running around the Fortnite Island carrying an SMG.

But stranger things have happened.

Recently, Epic Games added in another round of Naruto-themed cosmetics after the initial addition of Team 7 and a themed Creative experience based on the Hidden Leaf Village. If Naruto and friends can find a home in Fortnite, why not Goku?

As ever, until official confirmation comes from Epic Games these leaks should be taken lightly. If the collaboaration does happen and coincide with the movie release date, then it'll only be a matter of time before we learn more.
