Fortnite added Naruto Shippuden to the game.

New Strings: Kakashi Hatake is Konoha’s most respected shinobi teacher. He is a skilled ninja who appreciates the value of teamwork. Just don’t expect him to be on time for anything.


Naruto Uzumaki, the number one most unpredictable ninja and Jinchuriki host of the all-powerful nine-tailed beast is ready — along with the rest of Team 7 — to take you through to a Victory Royale!

Accompanying Naruto, the other members of Team 7:

Sasuke Uchiha: Experienced with the impressive visual Jutsu of the Sharingan and one of the last surviving members of the Uchiha clan.

Sakura Haruno: Doe-eyed for Sasuke, she has taken her fiery inner-voice, deft control of chakra, and extreme strength to become one of the greatest Kunoichi.

Kakashi Hatake: Known as The Copy Ninja for his deft skill in copying almost any Jutsu he sees in the Shinobi world using his second-hand Sharingan.

Always wanted to channel your inner Ninja and play as a member of Team 7? How about dropping onto the Island on the back of Kurama, the Nine-Tailed Beast?

Well, now is your chance! Teleporting their way into the Item Shop are:


  • Naruto Uzumaki (with Seventh Hokage variant Style): Believe it!
  • Sasuke Uchiha (with the Snake Sword Pickaxe): My only goal is in the darkness.
