Ninja has been a popular streamer for quite some time and while Fortnite was making waves, Ninja paired up with rapper Drake and a bunch of other celebrities to become of the most-watched streamers for Fortnite.
Ninja started out playing Halo and has now moved on to Fortnite, he is one of the best in the games and Epic Games has realized his dedication to the game with a skin that matches Ninja’s real-life persona.
Fortnite has been quick to pounce on pop culture and while they have had collaborations with movies and concerts in the game, this is the first time a streamer has gotten a skin about themselves.
Other popular streamers which should get a skin for themselves in the future include people like Dr. Disrespect, TimTheTatMan, Dr. Lupo, Tfue and Pokimane. It would be nice to have the option of playing as one of your favorite steamer in your favorite game.
Fortnite has been making a ton of changes and only time will tell if this is a one-off thing or will other streamers will get the chance or not to cement their name in the history of the game.
Fortnite is developed by Epic Games and is available for PC, Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch, iOS, and Android devices.
