A leak by a dataminer has revealed a new League of Legends crossover with Fortnite, bringing Arcane’s Vi to the battle royale along with Jinx.
Another League of Legends crossover might be imminent for Fortnite, as a new leak by a dataminer has revealed new character bundles for Arcane‘s fearsome Vi and the return of the pink-haired brawler Jinx. Jinx originally made her Fortnite debut in 2021 in celebration of Riot Games’ new League of Legends’ animated show, Arcane. In addition to the crossover character bundle, Epic Games also revealed their new partnership with Riot Games, bringing all of the studio’s titles including every League of Legends game and the tactical first-person shooter Valorant to the Epic Game Store.
Fortnite has been heavily defined by its crossovers, with some of its notable partnerships including Star Wars, DC’s Batman, Resident Evil, and an abundance of Marvel characters and events. With the game’s recently-introduced Chapter 3, Epic Games revealed one of its biggest crossovers to date, bringing everyone’s favorite web-head Spider-Man to Fortnite along with his web-shooters that allow players to easily traverse the map with a swinging ability. Many more characters from different popular media properties have made special appearances in Epic’s free-to-play battle royale, helping Fortnite stay profitable with accompanying virtual accessories, exclusive emotes, and new skins that are highly valued by players.
Shared on Twitter, via (Game Rant) dataminer iFireMonkey revealed new shop bundle leaks that confirm a second Arcane skin is being added to Fortnite, which features Vi and the return of Jinx. Inspired by Arcane, Vi’s bundle includes a Red Jacket skin, Jayce’s Hammer harvesting tool, a Toy Rabbit back bling, an unknown emote, and fresh new Arcane artwork for Fortnite‘s loading screen. Jinx is also back and her bundle includes an Arcane Jinx Outfit, Pow Pow Crusher harvesting tool, Dream Monkey back bling, and other goodies such as a music track, and two new Arcane and Fortnite splash art pieces. Both skins and cosmetics inspired by Arcane are in the game’s files and are expected to be released within the next two weeks.
The second League of Legends collaboration appears to be one of three crossovers coming in the following weeks to Fortnite. Recent leaks have revealed that Marvel’s Hawkeye is coming to Fortnite, with an exclusive bundle based on the show with Clint and Kate skins and cosmetics. Additionally, Spider-Man’s arch-nemesis The Green Goblin is expected to appear soon with another exclusive bundle and could bring about Chapter 3’s first crossover event.
Similar to previous recent leaks, Arcane’s Vi and Jinx being in the game’s files could mean that the crossover is imminent. Although Epic Games has yet to confirm if the collaboration rumor is true, Fortnite‘s new Chapter 3 appears to be the biggest one yet, and a host of even more crossovers and promotional tie-in content is expected during its upcoming seasons.
