This collaboration between League of Legends and Fortnite marks the first League of Legends champion featured in a non-Riot game. A multitude of Jinx items will be available in the Fortnite Item Shop starting today, November 4 at 8 p.m. ET.
The items include the Arcane Jinx Outfit; Pow Pow Crusher Pickaxe; Jinxed Spray; Jinx’s Dream Monkey Back Bling; Playground (Instrumental) Lobby Track; Wreaking Havoc Loading Screen; and Katchoo! Loading Screen.
To celebrate the entrance of Jinx into the world of Fortnite, Riot is also bringing a selection of the Riot Games product portfolio (League of Legends PC, Teamfight Tactics, Legends of Runeterra, Valorant) to the Epic Games Store.
“Fortnite has executed high profile collaborations and entertainment experiences while remaining committed to bringing players content that enriches their experience both in and out of game, a dedication we share and admire,” said Brandon Miao, Cross-Product Experiences and Partnerships Lead, Riot Experience (XP) at Riot Games.
“We hope fans will enjoy seeing Jinx, one of our most iconic League of Legends champions, in Fortnite to celebrate the launch of Arcane.”
“Riot Games is one of the world’s best developers and creators of groundbreaking entertainment franchises,” added Steve Allison, Vice President and General Manager of the Epic Games Store.
“We’re excited they’ve chosen to partner with us to bring their titles to millions of new players through the Epic Games Store.”
This partnership is the first collaboration between Epic Games and Riot Games, the latest activation in the recently-announced RiotX Arcane event, a month-long experience bringing all of its products together to celebrate the launch of Arcane, Riot’s first animated series.
Arcane premieres on Saturday, November 6 at 10PM ET on Netflix globally. It is the first Netflix series to debut with co-streaming exclusively on Twitch, allowing content creators on the service to broadcast themselves watching and reacting to episode one with their communities.
The Arcane series dives into the delicate balance between the rich city of Piltover and the seedy underbelly of Zaun. Tensions between these city-states boil over with the creation of hextech — a way for any person to control magical energy — in Piltover; and in Zaun, a new drug called shimmer transforms humans into monsters.
The rivalry between the cities splits families and friends as Arcane brings life to the relationships that shape some of League of Legends‘ famous champions including Vi, Jinx, Caitlyn, Jayce and Viktor. Based on the world behind the game League of Legends, the animated event series features a complex world filled with moral decisions, breathtaking animation and suspenseful storytelling.
Created by Christian Linke and Alex Yee, Arcane features the voices of Hailee Steinfeld (Vi), Ella Purnell (Jinx), Katie Leung (Caitlyn Kiramman), Kevin Alejandro (Jayce), Harry Lloyd (Viktor), Mick Wingert (Heimerdinger), Brett Tucker (Singed), JB Blanc (Vander), and Yuri Lowenthal (Mylo).
Also voicing characters are Roger Craig Smith (Claggor), Shohreh Aghdashloo (Grayson), Remy Hii (Marcus), Toks Olagundoye (Mel Medarda), Jason Spisak (Silco), and Mia Sinclair Jenness (Powder).
