In one of his live streams, CandywingX claims that one of the characters in the upcoming Season 8 Battle Pass will be Naruto. He further adds that it’s already been confirmed, and he is allowed to share this information. The streamer has previously met and spoken to Donald Mustard, chief creative officer for Epic Games and Fortnite.

While this has not yet been confirmed by Epic Games or Donald Mustard himself, Epic had successfully obtained the rights to Naruto back in August this year. So it is considered possible that the developers might have worked out a way to include the character in the upcoming Battle Pass.

Other than Naruto, there have been speculations that The Foundation skin can also make a return in Season 8. Players last saw him during the Season 7 trailer falling straight into the ocean and have not heard of him ever since. If Epic manages to get both Naruto and The Foundation skin next season, players are certainly in for a treat.
