However, as of right now, everything that will be featured in the event is still unclear. Epic did not disclose further details about the crossover. Players can anticipate bundles, character skins, and equipment. The announcement’s inclusion of Shenron may foreshadow upcoming alterations to Fortnite’s map or the introduction of limited-time game types. There could be a special limited-time event where players must collect six Dragon Balls and summon Shenron to make a wish. We can only wait for August 16, or possibly before, to be sure.
