Fortnite X Dragonball & Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero

 Woah, some major Dragon Ball news.

Fortnite X Dragonball starts today in the game and fans of both Fortnite and Dragonball couldn't be happier with the mash-up.

Here's everything going on in the game for it.

The Fortnite and Dragon Ball collaboration includes:

  • Dragon Ball Item Shop: Players can head to Fortnite’s Item Shop to suit up as fan-favorite characters Goku, Vegeta, Bulma, and Beerus. The collaboration also offers a Dragon Ball collection of Back Blings, Pickaxes, Gliders, and Emotes such as The Charging Up Emote and The Fusion Emote.
  • Power Unleashed Quests: A new “Dragon Ball: Power Unleashed!” tab has arrived inside of Fortnite, full of limited-time Quests and rewards. Complete the seven sets of Quests, collect all seven Dragon Balls, and players will score the Shenron Glider.
  • Battle With Versus Boards:  Special for the Dragon Ball collaboration, Versus Boards pit players against one another in a fight to be the Island's strongest. Both players must opt into a battle by interacting with a Board on the Island. Once a rival is chosen, players each will be revealed on the other’s map and have five minutes to defeat their opponent.
  • Go Even Further Beyond in Battle Royale: Players can wield the powers of Goku with new gameplay items in Fortnite. The Kamehameha will let anyone who wields it launch a devastating energy beam at foes, while the Nimbus Cloud (Kintoun) will let players take flight around the Island.
  • Dragon Ball Super Episode Festival: From August 16 until September 17, 2022, players can board a cruise ship inside of Fortnite and watch select Dragon Ball Super episodes with their friends. To hop in, visit Fortnite’s “Discover” page.
  • Tournament of Power: The Tournament of Power, a Battle Royale Duos tournament, takes place in Fortnite for all regions starting August 18, 2022 (specific event timing for each region can be found in the “Compete” tab in Fortnite). The Tournament of Power will also feature an additional Kamehameha Leaderboard for eliminating players with the powerful Kamehameha. Players who earn 3 Kamehameha elimination points will be awarded the Beerus Eating Emoticon.
  • Dragon Ball Adventure Island: Explore iconic locations from Dragon Ball on the Dragon Ball Adventure Island starting August 19, 2022. Fans can soar through a ring course on a Nimbus Cloud (Kintoun) at Kami’s Palace, prepare food at Goku's House, and traverse an obstacle course at the Room of Spirit & Time. Additionally, fans can test their power in an open player-vs-player battle arena “Tenkaichi Budokai.” The Dragon Ball Adventure Island experience is accessible through Fortnite’s “Discover” page.

Happening this Friday is the lovely Engrish titled Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, telling us no
American team has any say in telling them how to do things. Not seeing an offical site for it either. Getting more into it, this doesn't look like the best Dragonball film with the new art style sucks. And, as Funimation is now gone absorbed into Crunchyroll like 18 into Cell, there wasn't any fanfare or a premiere that we heard of. All the other recent Dragonball films had premieres in LA and well, this one just doesn't seem worthy.

In Japan, many would consider this a middle of the road film, this isn't going to be as good as the last three, it's more like they went for a Sunday afternoon kids movie. If you're a fan or have kids of your own, head out to it as it comes out this Friday.  Dubbed is so much better if you remember those voices from when you originally watched it.
