  • Though the official release date is fine, it's not the only tease in the tweet, which seems to include a mask appearing from one of the rifts that keep popping in-game up. While enthusiast speculation around the mask is already heating up online, fortnite traps seems most likely that this can be a reference to the Japanese kitsune, or fox. According to Western yokai folklore, the kitsune can shapeshift -- largely into human form -- and possesses various supernatural characteristics.

    As soon as it's difficult to say what this could mean for Fortnite Season 5, it will seem to be the first reference to Japan we've seen up to now. While other eras of history have emerged -- such as wooden carriages, pirate anchors or references to early Egypt -- this is actually the first time we have seen something that points to Historical Japan as a potential influence to this year's heavily theorized, but still unconfirmed, time-travel theme.

    More importantly, at least for most players, is the possibility that this could tease a kitsune skin unlocked through the Season 5 Fight Pass. The first teases for Season 4 showed skins that were accessible via its Battle Pass therefore it doesn't seem like much of a stretch.

    While we probably won't know anything for sure until the season actually buy fortnite items pc starts in 4 a.m. EDT on July 12, we will probably get a few more teasers in the forthcoming days.
