Earlier this week, Epic Games and popular streamer Tyler "Ninja" Blevins announced that the latter was getting an official skin in Fortnite. Fast-forward to an hour ago, and now that skin is available to buy. So, if you want to run around the free-to-play PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and mobile battle royale game looking like Ninja, well now is finally the time to live out your dreams. Of course, the skin runs at a premium price, but it will be available until this Sunday.
That said, as you would expect, it appears everyone and their brother's pet cat's corgi has copped the skin. Literally. I turned on a game real quick to see how many people copped the skin and almost every other player was rocking a Ninja skin. Epic Games doesn't divulge this type of information, but I'm sure it will wind up being one of the best-selling skins to date.
