Following swirling rumors, the Fortnite Jinx skin is official, and it's coming as one piece of a much bigger collaboration between Epic Games and Riot Games, creators of League of Legends. The collaboration will extend beyond Fortnite and into the Epic Games Store with several major Riot projects debuting on EGS today as well. But you're probably just here for the Fortnite Jinx skin. Here's what you need to know.

Fortnite Jinx Skin - League of Legends Crossover

League of Legends' Jinx, the de facto mascot for the popular MOBA, will become the first-ever League of Legends hero to appear in a game from outside of Riot Games. Her Fortnite skin, Arcane Jinx, is based on her look in the upcoming Netflix animated series, Arcane, which debuts on November 6.

  • Pow Pow Crusher pickaxe
  • Jinxed spray
  • Jinx’s Dream Monkey back bling
  • Playground (Instrumental) lobby track

The musical number is taken right out of the official Arcane soundtrack. Furthering the partnership, Epic and Riot have jointly revealed that several games from Riot's library are now available on the Epic Games Store, including League of Legends, Teamfight Tactics, Legends of Runeterra, and Valorant. This marks the first time ever that players will be able to access Riot's games outside of its own ecosystem. As for Jinx, you'll catch her in the Item Shop later today, before Arcane arrives on Netflix this weekend.

If that's not a big enough deal, you can also catch up with what we know about Epic's worst kept secret, the Fortnite Naruto skin too.
