In fact, Epic Games teams have just announced that as part of the Icon series, created in January 2020, Naomi Osaka will be the next well-known character on the list. In addition to being at the center of a Netflix documentary, being an activist, fashion designer and above all a tennis champion, the young Japanese player will have her avatar in Fortnite.
Thus, starting Thursday, March 3 at 7 p.m., Naomi Osaka’s clothing and accessories will be on sale in the store. Enough to spend more V-Bucks for the occasion, especially since they’ll have an alternate style.
Naomi Osaka is a multifaceted person. The game’s developer team explains that it refuses to be defined by one thing, which is that individual spirit that you bring to Fortnite.
Of course, two sets of skins will be offered. The first, Naomi Osaka’s costume, features a royal paddle axe, the charming Queen Nimbucarrier’s glider and also features an alternate court queen style. Regarding the second, it is the costume of the dark priestess Naomi. Players will be able to check out the included Poromancy Racket, as well as the Cerebrummist Cursed Cerebrummist glider, not to mention the alternative Neon Priestess style.
Note that the Royal Racket will create a pink royal effect when you hit it, while with the Poromancy Racket, the path will be a green spirit path.
