The long-awaited Fortnite and Naruto crossover will reportedly be added to the game on Nov. 16, according to leaks.

For a while now, rumors have been circulating surrounding the addition of Naruto coming to Fortnite. For a game that's seen the addition of various pop culture icons over the years, including Rick Sanchez, Batman, and even Ariana Grande, it's not too wild to anticipate an anime crossover happening at somepoint. That being said, I'm struggling to imagine Naruto Uzumaki running around the Fortnite island with an Assault Rifle.

Thanks to known Fortnite leaker, HYPEX, it seems we might finally have a date for the young ninja's arrival. It seems that not only will Naruto be arriving on Nov. 16, but a Hidden Leaf Village Creative Hub will also be added.

According to HYPEX on Twitter, the cosmetics and hub are planned to be released on the day at 9 a.m. ET, though it's possible that this could change.

It's unclear exactly what other cosmetics will be joining Naruto in the game, but previous leaks have hinted at the possibility of Mythic Kunais, as well as a "HeadbandK" and "HeadbandS" which perhaps suggest Kakashi and Sasuke.

Other items have also been spotted in the data, including Ramen and Ninja Scrolls. In context, both of these items seem strongly related to Naruto.

As always, until Epic Game officially announces the crossover, the information comes only from leaks and speculation. Until then, we can only wait and see.
