The Naruto skins for Fortnite’s upcoming Rivals crossover event have potentially leaked online, and it could be that Hinata, Gara, and Itachi are all heading to the battle royale as part of season three.
Shiina, a Fortnite YouTuber partnered with Epic Games, revealed an apparent leak of the new skins on their official Twitter, sharing an image of a Japanese magazine cover with Hinata, Gara, Itachi, and Orochimaru from Naruto standing alongside the logo for Fortnite and the upcoming crossover event. Shiina also says that the leak has been confirmed by MidaRado, another Fortnite YouTuber and Twitch streamer partnered with Epic.

Adding credibility to the rumours, when Fortnite held its first Naruto crossover back in November 2021, the cosmetics and skins for that event were also leaked online, courtesy of the cover of a Japanese magazine. That leak, which showed Sasuke and Naruto alongside a banner for Fortnite, was later proved to be accurate when the characters did indeed arrive as new skins. It was shared by the Twitter user and Fortnite leaker Hypex.
Hypex has since shared the new leaks of the chapter three cosmetics uncovered by Shiina, further suggesting that they may be genuine.
