It's time to celebrate Goku Day in Fortnite. Dragon Ball is such a big deal in Japan that the Japan Anniversary Association observes May 9 as Goku Day. And it's no secret that Epic Games and Fortnite are fans of Dragon Ball too, made clear by the multiple Dragon Ball x Fortnite crossovers.

This primer will detail what Goku Day means for Fortnite and how to get Goku Black, a brand-new Dragon Ball Outfit, arriving in Fortnite with Goku Day.

Fortnite Goku Day: When is Goku Black coming to Fortnite?

May 9 is recognised in Japan as Goku Day. To honour the occasion, Fortnite is introducing yet another Dragon Ball Skin to the game — Goku Black. Goku Black, also known as Zamasu, is an evil counterpart to the main protagonist of the Dragon Ball series, Son Goku.

Goku Black headlines an Item Shop Set. To get the Goku Black Skin, you must purchase it in the Item Shop while it's on display. The Son Goku Outfit from the Fortnite x Dragon Ball crossover is priced at 2,000 V-Bucks, so expect to pay a similar number of V-Bucks if you want Goku Black.

Fortnite Goku Day: Goku Black Bundle details

The Goku Black Bundle will feature additional doodahs to accompany the Goku Black Outfit. For starters, Goku Black comes with a Super Saiyan Rosé variant that you can transform into mid-game with an Emote. Also included in the bundle are two Harvesting Tools and a Wrap.

Goku Black is an entirely original Fortnite Skin and does not share the same model as Son Goku. As for the accessory cosmetics, one of Goku Black's Pickaxes is a two-handed staff. The other Harvesting Tool releasing with Goku Black is codenamed "Gold", but that's all we know so far.

So, that's the lowdown on Fortnite Goku Day and the Goku Black Skin. While all signs point toward Goku Black making his debut in Fortnite on Goku Day, nothing is official until he hits the Item Shop on May 9, 2023. However, we suggest you get some V-Bucks ready because this is one Fortnite Outfit Dragon Ball fanatics won't want to miss!
