Season 7 of Fortnite should end in a few weeks, so Epic Games has decided to celebrate in a big way with new collaborations that will arrive in the next few days.

The first of these has already happened with Morty's debut now available in the in-game store, and the next to arrive will be famed Colombian reggaeton singer and five-time Latin Grammy winner J Balvin, who after its first appearance at the end of 2020, will arrive with all its flow on the island.



J Balvin arrives on Fortnite: Skin and cosmetics

First revealed thanks to HYPEX, the J Balvin skin will be part of the Icon Series, joining superstars like Travis Scott, Ariana Grande and Marshmello as part of this exclusive collection.

The skin will come with three different styles, the main, the Balvin Energy look and the surreal Balvin Skeleton, which were used during the concert the reggaeton player gave last year within Fortnite during the campaign. Halloween "Fortnitemares".

Also available will be his "Real" back bling and his pickaxe, as well as the Balvin Cruiser glider which will leave a colorful trace in the sky of the island. Finally, the exclusive emote for this bundle will be inspired by "In Da Getto", a famous song by J Balvin and Skrillex that you can see below.
