This is the first time that Riot Games is bringing a League of Legends character to another game. It’s all part of a month-long promotion campaign for “Arcane,” which features Jinx as the main character.
The star of ‘Arcane’ is coming to Fortnite
“Fortnite has executed high profile collaborations and entertainment experiences while remaining committed to bringing players content that enriches their experience both in and out of game, a dedication we share and admire,” Brandon Miao, Riot Games cross-product experiences and partnerships lead, said. “We hope fans will enjoy seeing Jinx, one of our most iconic League of Legends champions, in Fortnite to celebrate the launch of Arcane.”
Fortnite has been completely transformed into a virtual version of “Ready Player One” over the last couple of years. Everyone from Sarah Connor to Lebron James to Morty Smith has made an appearance in the battle royale. It’s easy to see Ariana Grande, Master Chief and Ryu from Street Fighter in a single match.
The standalone Jinx skin will cost 1500 V-Bucks on its own while the bundle will cost 1800 V-Bucks.
Here is everything coming to Fortnite with the Jinx bundle:
- Pow Pow Crusher Pickaxe
- Jinxed Spray
- Jinx’s Dream Monkey Back Bling
- Playground (Instrumental) Lobby Track
- Wreaking Havoc Loading Screen
- Katchoo! Loading Screen
“Arcane” will be available to stream via Netflix, in every region in which the service is available, on Saturday, Nov. 6 at 10 p.m. Twitch streamers will be able to co-stream the first TV series based on the League of Legends universe on their own channels.
