Was a nice surprise to get these today. I play Fortnite pretty regularly and stuff like this usually gets leaked ahead of time, but this was a total surprise. I expect FN is not done with Dragon Ball collabs, especially since there have been no villain skins yet. You have to think Freeza is coming at some point. And with Gohan being added today that would probably make Future Trunks the next Saiyan on deck to join Fortnite.
I really thought the packs were going to be Gohan & Piccolo in a single pack and then 18 & Future Trunks in another since they usually have to do 1 girl per pack.

I actually had a super good time playing last collaboration, so I'm moderately psyched to jump back in. Fortnite overall just doesn't fit in with my schedule (I barely have enough time to play any other stuff casually on my own, nevermind an evergreen game like this...), so it's nice to have an "excuse" where I "have to" check something out. Dunno when that'll be, but I'll definitely try to get a stream with friends of the site going... at some point.

I would have loved to be able to play as Gohan Beast, but I think I can guess why they didn't do it: the massive hair would block the view. Some players already said it was sometimes a problem with Vegeta's hair or Goku's Super Saiyan and Super Saiyan Blue hair. So imagine what they would say with massive upwards hair like Gohan Beast!

Having to keep characters' size in check is also probably why we don't get Orange Piccolo, who I think is supposed to be way more muscular and massive than Piccolo's regular shape!

Of course, I could be wrong and it could all be for a simple reason like not spoiling the forms for those who want to buy the Blu-ray / DVD releases or rent it.

But I think avoiding massive disproportions in the characters (whether too small or too big) is a constant in this competitive game - which is why you'll probably never get to play as Yoda among the Star Wars characters for example.
