Who is this Naruto character coming to Fortnite Season 8?

Naruto is the titular character of the popular Shonen Jump manga by Masashi Kishimoto. He is a young ninja that was initially treated as an outcast by Konoha Village due to the mythical Nine Tailed Fox beast sealed inside of his body, until he proved himself to be a hero that could be depended upon.

The series released for 72 volumes between 1999 and 2014 and was adapted into an animated television series that ran for 720 episodes. A sequel is currently being released both in Weekly Shonen Jump and on Japanese television called Boruto: Naruto Next Generation. It tells the story of Naruto’s son.

Mustard confirmed on his own Twitter account that the two had indeed met and talked about the upcoming season, telling the young man not to spoil too much.
