When we have been children, my buddies and I used to play a recreation we referred to as “Be Whoever You Want,” the place we’d faux to be our heroes from video video games, TV exhibits, and films. Goku, Vegeta, or different Dragon Ball characters have been a well-liked selection — we’d think about that we might fly nice distances and launch highly effective Kamehameha beams to “fight” one another. Many years later, due to Fortnite’s new Dragon Ball-themed event that kicked off on Tuesday, I’ve been in a position to reside out these childhood desires of feeling like an precise Super Saiyan.
In my first match after putting in the brand new replace, I beelined to Kame House, an iconic location from the franchise that has been added to the Fortnite map. Dressed as Goku, I floated right down to the home and watched as one other participant talked to Bulma. But the participant quickly noticed me and commenced charging up a Kamehameha, which I used to be certain would imply my demise.
In a valiant effort to guard myself, I ducked for canopy inside Kame House and grabbed a weapon, however the different participant’s beam began destroying the partitions round me. I fled and picked up one other Kamehameha merchandise I discovered on the bottom. Another participant had defeated my attacker, so I used to be protected for the second — however I noticed a unique opponent heading my approach.
I made a decision that it was time to make use of my very own Kamehameha for the very first time. As Goku, in his iconic yellow Super Saiyan hair, I charged up the power blast over an agonizing few seconds as Goku slowly shouted, “Kaa… may… haa… may… ha!!!” On the ultimate “ha,” I / Goku despatched an enormous blue power blast ahead and immediately eradicated the opposite participant.
I couldn’t have fun my victory for too lengthy, as but one other participant had began to assault me. I picked up a close-by Nimbus Cloud and hopped on it to fly away from hazard, and to my shock and delight, the Nimbus Cloud sounded exactly like it does in Dragon Ball.
That all kicked off an exciting match the place I flew from spot to identify throughout the map and launched Kamehamehas at my foes with reckless abandon. I wasn’t the one one; all around the Fortnite island, I noticed different gamers hovering by means of the sky on Nimbus Clouds and summoning Kamehameha beams to attempt to defeat their opponents. It was like everybody else was enjoying “Be Whoever You Want” alongside me — an phantasm that was helped by the many, many crossover characters you’ll be able to embody whereas enjoying Fortnite.
Unfortunately, I didn’t get the victory royale, however I already can’t wait to leap again in. I’ll be doing every thing I can to get right into a Kamehameha battle with another Super Saiyan, identical to I used to as a child.
