A crossover between two titans in the gaming industry, Fortnite and League of Legends, is coming to celebrate the release of Riot Games’ new animated series, Arcane. League champion Jinx will be dropping onto the Island as a new skin in Fortnite.

Epic Games have been spoiling Fortnite players with one impressive crossover after the other throughout Chapter 2 Season 8.

The much-anticipated Naruto crossover was expected to be the next one in line. However, leakers have discovered something equally impressive is on the cards: Fortnite will be crossing paths with League of Legends.

The crossover perfectly coincides with the launch of Riot Games’ new animated series, Arcane, featuring one of the show’s main characters in Jinx.
