Fortnite made headlines with its recent League of Legends crossover to celebrate the Netflix series Arcane, and now another one is on the way as Vi will be getting her own skin.

Epic Games’ hit battle royale, Fortnite, is known for its huge collaborations with pop culture icons, including beloved video game characters like God of War’s Kratos and Horizon Zero Dawn’s Aloy.

So it was no surprise when they collaborated with League of Legends to coincide with the franchise’s acclaimed Netflix show Arcane last year, bringing Jinx to the Island with her own skin and cosmetics.
