Tyler "Ninja" Blevins has become an almost household name over the past few years as he has risen the ranks of Twitch streamer to internet celebrity to global icon. It's difficult to tell whether Fortnite or Blevins would be as popular as they are without one another so the former is thanking the latter in a way that many (including Blevins) have dreamed of for years.
On Wednesday morning, Blevins, streaming now on Microsoft's Mixer platform, revealed that he was getting his own personalized in-game skin, pickaxe, back bling and dance emote in his likeness. Grinning ear to ear, Blevin's could help but giggle and yell in excitement when he finally showed off the cosmetics to the thousands watching his stream.
The cosmetics, part of Fortnite's "Icon Series" will be live in the Epic Games store from January 16th until the 19th. The price has not been made public as of yet.
