We’ve all heard famous YouTubers and streamers say they dream of having their own Fortnite skin. Well, for Ninja, that is becoming a reality, as it was announced today that he will be getting his own Fortnite skin tomorrow as part of the Icon Series.
“I’ve dreamt of having a skin in Fortnite since I started playing the game. Today, my dream becomes reality. Get the Ninja Fortnite Skin in the Epic store Thursday 6 p.m. CST-Sunday 7 p.m.”
This is huge news, and I can imagine we will see many more creators acknowledged over the coming months. This is a smart move by Epic, and it’s something I’m surprised has taken this long. This is a skin that a lot of Ninja fans (including myself) will be buying, so it will be a huge source of revenue, much like the collaboration skins in the past such as the recent Star Wars collaboration.
“Gaming, music, film, and fashion collide in Fortnite in the Icon Series. The Icon Series brings the artistic vision, personality, and attitude of top creators to Fortnite, building on previous collaborations with Marshmello and Major Lazer.”
“First up is Ninja. Visit the item shop starting January 16 at 7:00PM ET to get the Ninja Outfit, Ninja’s Edge Back Bling, Ninja Style Emote and Dual Katanas Pickaxe.”
“Stay tuned for future Icon Series collaborations, including Loserfruit, TheGrefg and more creators from games, music and entertainment.”
