The collaboration is now live, with the Dragon Ball Adventure Island to follow on August 19. In addition to locations inspired by Dragon Ball Super—including Kami's Palace, Goku's House and the Room of Spirit & Time—players will have the ability to pick up the Kamehameha and ride around on Kinto'un, and there's even a Dragon Ball Super Episode Festival row in Discover. For those who want to watch specific episodes within Fortnite, Island Codes will soon be available on the official website for episodes 9, 10, 11, 13, 81 and 98.



If you're looking for some fierce competition, the Tournament of Power kicks off in all regions on August 18 on the Competitive playlist. Competing in this Battle Royale Duos tournament could net you prizes like the Angry Vegeta Emoticon, Goku's Kanji Banner Icon and Beerus Eating Spray.



The Dragon Ball Item Shop is available with Son Goku, Vegeta, Bulma and Beerus, each with their own themed Pickaxes, Gliders, Emotes and more.



This is just scratching the surface, so if you're interested in playing during the collab you'll want to check out the Fortnite blog for all the details. Here's an overview:


  • 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.


Beyond the collaboration with Fortnite, tickets for the Dragon Ball Super: SUPER HERO anime film can now be purchased via Fandango in the U.S. and Canada and on the global ticketing website in other English-speaking regions, with the anticipated movie set for more than 2,500 theaters across North America on August 19 in English-subtitled and English-dubbed formats. In addition, the film will screen in select U.S.-based IMAX theaters.
