    Powerful heroes save the day once more.

    The Dragon Ball franchise makes its triumphant return to Fortnite with the additions of Gohan and Piccolo from the Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero movie. 

    In the latest Fortnite update (v23.30), Gohan and Piccolo from Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero enter the fray. Both characters will be available in the item shop starting today, and Dragon Ball-themed items and Dragon Ball Adventure Island are back.

    The latest details are available below via Epic Games:

    In the v23.30 update, Son Gohan and Piccolo from the Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero movie make their Fortnite debut, the Kamehameha attack item and Nimbus Cloud (Kintoun) mobility item are out of the vault, and Dragon Ball Adventure Island is back!

    Go Beyond Once Again in Battle Royale

    Fortnite KamehamehaThroughout each match in Battle Royale/Zero Build, the Kamehameha and Nimbus Cloud (Kintoun) items will fall from the sky in capsules. Launch a devastating energy beam with the Kamehameha, and with the Nimbus Cloud (Kintoun), take flight around the Island! The frequency of capsules will increase as the Storm closes in, meaning the end of each match will be primetime for an epic showdown. 

    These two items will remain in Battle Royale/Zero Build until v23.40.
