Following up Epic Games' recent "Rivals!" teaser for its second Fortnite x Naruto crossover cosmetics set, it appears leakers have revealed that Itachi and Hinata skins are indeed coming to the game soon.

On June 16, prominent Fortnite leaker @ShiinaBR put out a tweet "confirming skins for Itachi and Hinata.

"Independent of yesterday's magazine leak," Shiina Tweeted, "the 'Itachi' and 'Hinata' skins have been confirmed to me by @MidaRado, who has reliable insider information. If anyone had doubts that the image of the new Naruto skins is real, this is your confirmation."

Previously, some other leaks surfaced that hinted at the crossover. Known Fortnite leaker @HYPEXposted an image, courtesy of @pepitochiken, which, despite being in Japanese, clearly displays the Fortnite x Naruto Shippuden logo. The image contains depictions of four characters who did not receive skins during the previous crossover:

  • Hinata Hyuga
  • Gaara
  • Itachi Uchia
  • Orochimaru

Given the popularity of these characters, it wouldn't be bold to assume that they could be receiving skins this time around. However, Epic Games has yet to confirm which characters, if any, will be receiving skins or other cosmetics.

The previous Naruto collaboration saw the addition of Team 7 Outfits: Naruto, Sasuke, Sakura, and Kakashi. The crossover also featured a Creative experience set in the Hidden Leaf Village, some additional quests given by NPC Kakashi, and the Nindo Challenges.

As with all leaks and rumors, feel free to take this information with a grain of salt until it's officially announced by Epic Games.
