Ninja gets his own Fortnite skin
The number-one Fortnite streamer is now literally in the game
For the last two years, the video game Fortnite has beaten any other game in popularity, and the game is so widely spread that several skilled Fortnite streamers have become celebrities. This is the case for Tyler “Ninja” Blevins, who, to date, is one of the most popular streamers in the world. His success comes mainly from playing Fortnite, and he became a phenomenon just as the video game did. With all kinds of perks to personalize the game experience, there is one now made especially for Ninja – his own Fortnite skin.
Ninja is the first player ever to receive this privilege. Ninja told his viewers during his Wednesday morning stream, “It happened. It’s official. We finally got a Ninja skin in the game. In Fortnite. We did it.”
The skin will be available for purchase as of today at 7 pm ET. Fans can also take a look at it right now before it is up for sale, as Ninja is currently using it to play. Ninja cannot be more thrilled about his gift and he claims that “looks just like me.” The skin comes with four variations along with the game, including one wielding two katanas. “I’ve dreamt of having a skin in Fortnite since I started playing the game. Today, my dream becomes a reality. Get the Ninja Fortnite Skin in the Epic store Thursday 6 p.m. CST-Sunday 7 p.m. Don’t forget to use code NINJA!,” published the popular gamer on his Twitter account.
Epic Games is committed to the intention of going big, not only with video games. This publisher wants to collaborate with stars and celebrities, including music artists like Marshmello and Major Lazer.
