Later this month, Dragon Ball characters will be released on Fortnite ...

Epic unveiled dragon ball characters on Thursday morning. Shenron is a glowing wish dragon that is summoned out of the titular dragon balls floating over the Reality Tree. The skins will be released on Aug. 16, although we don't know which characters will make an appearance.

Shenron is one of many ever-present characters in Dragon Ball. He's the earthly wish dragon in Dragon Ball Z, Dragon Ball Super, and even Dragon Ball GT (which isnt canon). It's anyone's guess as to which characters will appear in the battle royale.

There are a few safe bets on who will go into the group, and Vegeta might as well. With the event so close to the release date for Dragon Ball: Super Hero, the franchise's latest film, it appears likely that Gohan and Piccolo will take center stage in the upcoming film.

We are completely unaware of in-game quests and mechanics. It's possible that players may be able to collect a Dragon Ball weapon or summon Shenron in-game, but we wont know for sure until next week.
