LeBron James & Fortnite : Limited Edition Character Available Soon

It’s LeBron James!  LeBron James in a Fortnite skin?  What could be better than that? LeBron James… as a basketball soldier… with jetpack… and some sort of antigravity device on his back.

LeBron James has joined the Fortnite metaverse. Starting on July 14th, players will be able to purchase two different versions of the NBA star: a regular LeBron with a handful of outfits, and another modeled after his role in the upcoming movie Space Jam: A New Legacy.

The player’s upcoming shoe, the Nike LeBron 19, will be offered as an accessory. Two new skins – one modeled after his role in the movie Space Jam: A New Legacy and another sporting a classic game day look from 2018 – are available through the purchase of limited-edition bundles.

Rumors have circulated about the release of a LeBron James skin since May when some of developer Epic’s plans were unearthed by an Epic v. Apple trial. One possible source for these rumors is Fortnite controller Tyler “Ninja” Blevins who teased on his Twitch channel back in April that there might be something coming soon with Nike’s Partnership with Fortnite which could center around Nike basketball and athletes like LeBron James or Kobe Bryant.

The same leak that revealed a LeBron skin in Fortnite also suggested a variation based on The Rock could be coming to the game, so it’s safe to say celebrities will become standard skins for the popular squirt-gunner.

LeBron James Comes to Fortnite

LeBron James is coming to Fortnite this week! LeBron will be available soon. LeBron James will come in two flavors: one that’s sporting a basketball game day look from 2018 and another modeled after his role in the upcoming movie Space Jam: A New Legacy.

The LeBron 19 shoe will also be available through limited-edition bundles. This LeBron skin was leaked back in May during Epic’s court battle with Apple where some documents were released showing LeBron as a character for Fortnite. One possible source of these rumors could be Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins who teased on his Twitch channel back in April that LeBron might be joining Fortnite wearing some of Nike’s gear or he could have been joking. LeBron James has been a big esports backer and Fortnite is the latest game to support some pro play. I’m sure LeBron will get involved with Fortnite streaming at some point and maybe even playing during an NBA offseason.
