Leaked “K-Pop” skin appears in Fortnite data mine

A mysterious, unnamed skin in the Fortnite game files originally discovered in the 5.40 patch has been updated.

The skin received a name, K-Pop, and was shifted to the “Featured Items” folder.

The Featured Items folder is where skins going to appear in the Item Shop are located, meaning K-Pop can be expected to go on sale. This contradicts earlier speculation that the mystery skin was a platform exclusive.

Since the skin first appeared in the v5.40 patch, and 5.5 is expected to release by September 16, the K-Pop skin may be available in the Item Shop in the next few days.

The skin features a colorful hoodie with eyes and bat wings on the hood.

There are no other features available at this time, such as a potential Back Bling or pickaxe that may come with the skin.

K-Pop was originally discovered by the Twitter account Fortnitee_leaks.

The Fortnite Item shop updates around 6 PM EST and you can check out Dexerto’s hub for the latest on what is being sold.


Fortnite Galactus skin leaked ahead of Season 4 finale event

Just days ahead of Fortnite’s Galactus live event on December 1, data-miners have leaked a highly anticipated Galactus skin without spoiling event details. 

Galactus, the “Devourer of Worlds,” has been approaching Fortnite’s island and his unavoidable arrival is finally nigh. In a one-time-only, live Season 4 “Nexus War” finale on December 1, Marvel’s world-eater and Epic Games’ player base will collide. 

While fans currently know that the gigantic, cosmic entity is making his way to the Island and that something will be happening on the aforementioned date at 4 p.m. ET, few details are available.

Fortunately for impatient aficionados of the battle royale, dataminers have leaked a Galactus skin that should be coming to the game’s shop with a bundle at some point.

The Galactus skin doesn’t seem massive, but it’s definitely spooky.

While it’s unclear exactly how similar this skin will be to the teased images of a gargantuan, shadowy Galactus shared by Epic themselves, the skin most certainly presents an imposing figure. 

Dressed in glistening jet black and red, the skin features regal, villainous armor bookended by chunky boots and a massive helmet. Eagle-eyed fans might even notice a particularly smug smile sitting across the infamous villain’s purple face.

It remains uncertain if this skin will be available for purchase and, if so, when it will be. But leakers like ‘ximton’ have discovered files indicating it could be part of a bundle. Still, in order to save fans from leaks, dataminers have remained largely quiet about specific event details.

Fortnite Galactus event – what we know so far

A variety of leaks have already surfaced, showing a gigantic Galactus and teasing the possibilities of a major battle between Marvel’s heroes and the cosmic world-eater. But Epic Games have tried to keep things on the low, only confirming that “the fate of all Reality lies in the balance.”

As mentioned earlier, the finale event begins on Tuesday, December 1 at 4 p.m. ET (1 p.m. PT, 9 p.m. GMT) and its exact duration is unknown. Epic have advised players to download the latest update (14.60) and Houseparty (which is integrated with Fortnite to allow for live video chat).
