Tyler “Ninja” Blevins, a streamer who is synonymous with Fortnite: Battle Royale, is being honored with his own skin. The skin will be available tomorrow, Jan. 16, and you can purchase it if you wish to cosplay as the man himself. The skin will stay in the shop until Jan. 19.
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! #NinjaSkin #EpicPartner pic.twitter.com/xTn9UlbkGI

Ninja showed off the skin on his Mixer stream, and we must say, it really does look like him. His trademark blue hair is in full effect, and the skin is wearing a strange hooded jacket.
“It happened, it’s official, we finally got a Ninja skin. In the game. In Fortnite. We did it,” he said. The skin comes with four different styles, and Back Bling options, so you can look a little different to all the other Ninjas that will be in the game tomorrow.
It’s also a busy time in Fortnite right now. Update 11.40 has brought us the Rippley Vs. Sludge mission, the 8-Ball Vs. Scratch mission, and plenty more changes to the game. Probably the most significant change in the game is the return of the Heavy Assault Rifle, thanks to the new Sidegrading system.
This gives us plenty to do as the first season of Chapter 2 winds down and is expected to end sometime in the middle of February.
