Last November, Naruto and his friends took the Fortnite Island by storm. Now, some of Naruto’s friends (and foes) will arrive to join the rest of Team 7! Get ready: with Naruto Rivals, Itachi Uchiha, Gaara, Orochimaru, and Hinata will be available in the Fortnite Item Shop on Thursday, 24 June 10AM AEST.

Here’s a quick rundown of what’s new (and returning!) with Naruto Rivals:
- Embody Your Ninja Way: In addition to their default Outfits, Itachi Uchiha, Gaara, and Orochimaru all come with an alt Style; the Hinata Hyuga Outfit comes with two alt Styles. Players can also unlock the Rasenshuriken Emote and Striking Shadow Snakes Emote. For a full list of Rivals Items and Bundles, and to see both Emotes in action, visit the Fortnite blog.
- Return to Konohagakure: Starting 24 June 10AM AEST until 8 July 10AM AEST, the gates of the Hidden Leaf village will be open once again! Visit locations like the Hokage Residences, Ichiraku (best Ramen in the leaf village!), and the Hospital. Complete quests from Naruto, Sasuke, Sakura, and Kakashi to gain XP and unlock other iconic locations.
- The Nindo Community Challenges Return: Up for the challenge? Starting today, The Nindo Community Challenges return! Unlock the paths of Itachi, Gaara, Orochimaru, and Hinata by completing their tasks in either Fortnite Battle Royale or Fortnite Zero Build to unlock Emoticons and—the ultimate rewards—the Akatsuki Wrap and the Manda Glider!
