Famous Fortnite streamer, Ninja, is getting his own in-game skin!

Ninja, arguably the worlds most famous videogame streamer and the unofficial face of Fortnite has shared some big news today.

The streamer, whose real name is Tyler Blevins, is signed exclusively to Microsoft's Mixer platform having moved from Twitch late last year.

And today the famous stream announced that he will soon have his own skin in the game. Yet another bow to his string and sure to send his personal net-worth skyrocketing even higher.

This appears to be part of a new scheme by the game dubbed the 'Icon series'.

So we can probably expect developers Epic Games to add more well-known Fortnite personalities to the game at some point in the future.

The former Halo pro announced the news on January 15, 2020 with a heartfelt message sent to his fans on social media which read:

"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!"

Speaking on his stream, he also added:

“I’m just really excited about this, I’m excited to share this with you guys. If you put the time in, the effort in, anything is possible. That’s just facts.”

How to get the Fortnite Ninja skin?

As mentioned, the skin will not be available until Thursday 6 p.m. CST, which for those in the UK, is midnight.

You will have to buy it, likely with Fortnite V-Bucks, but at the time of writing neither Ninja or Epic Games has revealed how much it will cost.

For any parents reading this, there's more info on V-Bucks further down. However, to make you aware up front, the minimum spend for V-bucks is £7.99/$9.99 for 1,000 V-Bucks.

In exchange, players will get a rather unique skin that will come with four different variations and back bling options that include dual katanas.
