In the most recent update, Fortnite welcomed another collaboration, coinciding with the revival of the beloved animated series Futurama on Hulu. The crossover introduced the show’s main characters—Fry, Leela, and Bender—as playable skins, along with various cosmetics inspired by the series and an exclusive weapon, Bender’s Shiny Metal Raygun. And now, it appears that Jujutsu Kaisen is up next to make its mark in Fortnite.

The leak, discovered through a datamine by the renowned leaker BarbieharpFN, points to a trio of Jujutsu Kaisen characters—Nobara Kugisaki, Megumi Fushigoro, and Satoru Gojo—receiving their own in-game skins as part of the crossover. Additionally, fans can expect new pickaxes and back blings inspired by the beloved anime. This collaboration comes on the heels of the second season’s recent debut, creating more excitement among fans. Although no specific release date has been provided, the existence of in-game files suggests that the collaboration will likely arrive in the coming weeks.

Fortnite’s collaborations have been a standout feature of the game, offering exclusive gameplay perks with each crossover. For example, the My Hero Academia collaboration introduced Deku’s signature “Smash” attack from the anime, granting players a game-changing ability. Similarly, Dragon Ball Z collaborations included the powerful Kamehameha as a Mythic weapon, accessible during battles. However, the leaked information did not confirm any special weapons or abilities from Jujutsu Kaisen.

The game’s wide-reaching partnerships with popular brands have become a recognizable aspect of Fortnite’s identity. Renowned rapper Travis Scott, for instance, has made multiple appearances in the game, even hosting a virtual concert within Fortnite. Leaks and rumors have also hinted at potential gaming collaborations with major franchises like The Elder Scrolls and World of Warcraft. Thus, the introduction of Jujutsu Kaisen skins in Fortnite is yet another example of the battle royale’s ability to extend its influence across diverse cultural realms.
