Playing Fortnite: Battle Royale dressed as a ninja is cool — but starting tomorrow, you’ll be able to play Fortnite: Battle Royale dressed as Ninja.

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.

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?

Jason Winter is a veteran gaming journalist, he brings a wide range of experience to MMOBomb, including two years with Beckett Media where he served as the editor of the leading gaming magazine Massive Online Gamer. He has also written professionally for several gaming websites.


  1. Code NINJA is his Epic Games creator affiliate code so he get’s a small % of all sales made with his code on Epic Games store and Fortnite. So he probably gets more on top of whatever he’s getting from them using his likeness.
