Here’s LeBron James in Fortnite • Eurogamer.net

Basketball pro and Space Jam 2 star LeBron James is the next celebrity coming to Fortnite as themselves.

LeBron James’ appearance is timed alongside this week’s release of Space Jam: A New Legacy, the live action and animated Looney Tunes film sequel in which he stars.

The LeBron skin will have three styles: Tune Squad, Majesty and Casual, reflecting his Space Jam outfit, King nickname and… I guess how he hangs out at home in shorts.

As ever, there will be a competitive cup to win the skin for yourself before it goes on public sale.

Fortnite fans have been expecting LeBron James for a while now, after he appeared in planning documents for the game published during the Epic Games vs. Apple trial. Originally, the skin was due to arrive last year (alongside a bunch of other delayed content, and some things like a Lady Gaga concert which are still to be announced).

Fortnite previously added a bunch of generic NBA outfits to the game back in May, and hosted a Harry Kane skin in honour of the Euros.

Last week, a real-life mural teasing LeBron’s arrival was spotted on a street in Chicago, and quickly pounced on by Fortnite fans. It featured the game’s name, LeBron’s crown and the date: 14/7/2021. The mural was defaced to read “Fortnite is for kids”, though was later repaired.
