Ninja Gets His Own Fortnite Skin, Available This Week Only
For three days, from Jan. 16-19, you'll be able to obtain a skin in Fortnite's new "Icon" series that will transform your character into a spiky blue-haired clone of Tyler "Ninja" Blevins, the de facto spokesgamer for Fortnite, who rocketed to streaming stardom two years ago.
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. Don't forget to use code NINJA! #NinjaSkin #EpicPartner pic.twitter.com/xTn9UlbkGI

Reports indicate that the skin will need to be "purchased," though no price has been officially provided, and it's unusual that a code would also be required. Perhaps you'll get a discount for applying it?
Epic Games said that the Icon series will be a chance to bring "the artistic vision, personality, and attitude of top creators to Fortnite." Future collaborations will be with streamer Loserfruit and YouTuber TheGrefg, as well as "more creators from games, music and entertainment." Hey, I played, like, three matches of Fortnite two years ago, so I should totally get my own skin, right?
