Fortnite gets an epic collaboration with legendary artist Yoshitaka Amano of Final Fantasy fame.
The upcoming V24.40 update for Fortnite will include some unique cosmetic items designed by Amano himself. The main draw of this collaboration will be a character skin named “Crossheart”
Check out the official tweet below from the game, which showcases the new skin in a teaser video:

The collab is described as:
Never skip a beat.
Crossheart, in collaboration with @YoshitakaAmanoO lands in MEGA City!
In the latest version of Fortnite, a cyberpunk-themed location called MEGA City is the highlight of the island. As you would expect, the city is dressed up in neon lights with all the bells, whistles, and grind rails to mess around with!
True to the cosmetic formula of the game, aside from the skin you can expect other items like an appropriately-themed glider, pickaxe and weapon wrap. Probably my personal favorite coming from the bundle is of course Amano’s sweet, sweet art which you can check out below.
Fortnite is no stranger to huge collabs with artists and popular franchises. They are even known to branch out to other video game properties like Arcane: League of Legends and Horizon Zero Dawn’s Aloy – bridging the characters to other consoles where you don’t normally see them.
You can now get Crossheart in Fortnite Battle Royale now for 1,200 V-bucks, their in-game currency. The cosmetics are available right now to purchase as of this writing.
As with any unique skins on offer, you can expect this one to be limited-time as well.
