Fortnite is on a roll currently, with countless collaborations lining up towards the end of this season. The new Fortnite x Jujutsu Kaisen collaboration has been leaked, and will be featuring some of the major characters from the game as playable cosmetics.
The hype around Anime has been constantly growing. As it becomes more and more mainstream, many brands are looking forward to collaborate with the biggest names in the field. Earlier there were some rumors of Fortnite collaborating with one of the biggest names in anime, and fans have been speculating many names. One Piece and YuGi-Oh were the prime suspects, but Epic has gone for something more new and trendy.

Jujutsu Kaisen will be getting new Season very soon, and has garnered a massive fanbase in the anime community. The exciting animations and story has kept fans hooked to the narrative. Naturally, Fortnite is finally trying to feature this popular anime as cosmetics in the game.
The skins were originally leaked by Barbieharp on Facebook, with popular leakers iFireMonkey and HYPEX backing up the claims. The guarantee of this event being true is almost certain, now that we have some official looks at the skins that will be releasing with this collaboration.
The skins that were revealed from the leaks feature Megumi, Kugisaki, and Gojo. They will all be available as cosmetics in the in-game store. However, the main protagonist, Yuji Itadori, is nowhere to be seen in these leaks. Therefore, it is safe to presume we will not be getting a cosmetic based on him. There will also be additional cosmetics including gliders, emotes, and backpacks.
Pricing of the Cosmetics
Quick little tweet before I pass out for the night, in the leaked images VIA @BarbieharpFN we can see two of the images were taken from the Bundled versions with accurate pricing.

Along with the first look of the skins, there has also been leaks about their pricing in the Fortnite Store. Each skin is rumored to cost around 1,500 V-Bucks, while each pickaxe will cost players 800 V-Bucks. There will also be two emotes that will be sold for 100 V-bucks each. Apparently, there will be a bundle offer all three characters, but you can find out the price when it releases officially.
Fortnite X Jujutsu Kaisen marks a memorable collaboration between games and anime. This will be more popular in the future for sure owing to the popularity of the recent anime shows. Fortnite had previously featured Attack on Titan cosmetics, and we are looking forward to more in the future.
