May 16, 2023: The Fortnite Goku Black skin is out now! Read on to see how to get it.

With new cosmetics always arriving in the game, you'll need to know how to get the Fortnite Goku Black skin. While the Fortnite x Dragon Ball crossover event came and went in 2022, we never got to see the much-rumoured Goku Black skin. Fortunately, that's set to change.

In this guide, we'll explain how to get the Goku Black skin in Fortnite. Several key details are still up in the air, but dedicated Dragon Ball fans have plenty to get excited about.

When is the Fortnite Goku Black skin release date?

The Fortnite Goku Black skin released on May 13, 2023.

Prior to Epic Games officially announcing the skin, the Black skin seemed all but confirmed, and was added to the Item Shop soon after. A scoop from renowned Fortnite leaker Hypex revealed it on May 7:

As per that tweet, it was assumed that the Goku Black skin would land in Fortnite on May 9, unofficially billed as Goku Day. However, that came and went without any new addition to the cosmetics rotation. Fortunately, there were only a few short days left to wait.

How do I get the Fortnite Goku Black skin?

With the Fortnite Goku Black skin out now in Fortnite, you'll have to purchase it in the Item Shop. Unlike the ongoing Find the Force quests that offer free Star Wars skins for completing objectives, it doesn't appear that the Goku Black skin is unlockable through gameplay.


Therefore, you'll have to fork over your hard-earned V-Bucks to get the Goku Black skin. Pricing is as follows:

  • Goku Black skin - 1,500 V-Bucks
  • Goku Black skin bundle (skin, two pickaxes, and emote) - 2,200 V-Bucks

As it stands, those are probably the only ways to get the Fortnite Goku Black skin now it has dropped.
