Will Jujutsu Kaisen’s Yuji Itadori Come Back to Fortnite?
Back in Fortnite’s Chapter 4 Season 3, Epic Games collaborated with the popular anime Jujustu Kaisen (JJK) to bring its iconic character into the competitive battle royale. This excited numerous gamers who were fans of the anime, as they could now flaunt iconic JJK characters in their games. These skins were part of the Break The Curse! event and they were nowhere to be found, until recently when they popped back into the Item Shop.
While other main characters are now available for purchase, numerous players were disappointed to find out that Yuji Itadori, the protagonist of the anime, was not part of the JJK collection, which brings the question of when Sukuna’s vessel be added back into Fortnite. Let’s find out!
Will Yuji Itadori Be Featured Again in Fortnite?
While other iconic characters like Satoru Goju, Megumi Fushiguro, and Nobara Kugisaki have reappeared in the item shop, it seems mysterious that the main character Itadori Yuji is missing from the collection. This was despite numerous leakers and data miners predicting the addition of all JJK outfits and their corresponding cosmetics during Fortnite Winterfest.
Although these data miners found evidence of the Yuji outfit’s files in the game, this specific skin and its variants seem to be completely missing from the store. This might possibly have something to do with the way players originally acquired the skin, which was through the Break The Curse! Event, that requires you to purchase the premium pass for 1,000 V-Bucks, grind your way through it, and amass 11,000 Cursed Points to unlock it.
Considering that Yuji is the most sought-after skin from the collection, Epic might have something in the works, maybe in the form of a new event, to unlock this outfit. The studio is known for collaborating more than once with several brands or franchises and it would be no surprise if they indeed decide to collab with JJK again.
However, not all hope is lost as there is still time for the Winterfest event to end. It is entirely possible that the studio might change its decision and sell Itadori Yuji as a standalone outfit or even with his own bundle. At the time of writing, Epic Games has not provided any official confirmation, and the information provided above is based on leaks and speculation, so please take it all with a grain of salt.
