Fortnite streamer Ninja has just come to Epic Games’ battle royale Fortnite – actually, into it. Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, who last year left streaming platform Twitch to go over to Microsoft’s Mixer, has just got an official Fortnite skin as part of the game’s new Icon series – signature blue hair and headband included.

The Ninja Fortnite skin, which you can check out below, has been discovered and shared by various dataminers on Twitter, and it’s official – Ninja himself has now announced the skin. “I’ve dreamt of having a skin in Fortnite since I started playing the game. Today, my dream becomes reality,” the streamer tweets, adding a picture of the skin which you can check out further down.

In addition to the skin itself, the new Ninja addition to Fortnite also includes his now iconic victory dance – the ‘Pon Pon’ – as an emote. You can get a look at this via a tweet from user Hypex below. In the clip, you can also see he’s got back bling called ‘Ninja’s Edge’ and dual katanas as harvesting tools.
