Epic has announced a new Icon Series for Fortnite that will bring celebrities from the gaming, music, film and fashion industries into the Fortnite world.
The first Icon to be featured is Tyler “Ninja” Blevins, who’s been asking for his own personal custom Ninja skin in Fortnite for years now.
The Ninja custom set will include: Ninja’s Ninja Outfit, Ninja’s Edge Back Bling, Ninja Style Emote, and Dual Katana Pickaxe.
The entire set will be available in the item shop on January 16 at 12:00 p.m. GMT +8 for 1,500 V-bucks (US$15).

“I’ve dreamt of having a skin in Fortnite since I started playing the game. Today, my dream becomes reality,” said Ninja on Twitter.
This is not the first time Epic has put a celebrity into the game. Last year, musicians, Marshmello and Major Lazer, both received custom in-game skins.
The next two celebrities to join the Icon Series will be popular Australian content creator, Kathleen “Loserfruit” Belsten, and Spanish streamer, David “TheGrefg” Martinez.
