Fortnite players can get excited because Epic Games are introducing yet another member to the Icon Series. This time, it's Greek-Nigerian NBA superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo. As announced in a leak on 23 December 2022, the Milwaukee Bucks' two-time MVP will join the likes of LeBron James (and many others) as a playable character in Fortnite.
Moreover, the Giannis Fortnite skin comprises multiple art styles, including either athletic or regal designs. The bundle includes a Back Bling, Emote, Pickaxe, Spray, Wrap, and Winged Glider, each inspired by and celebrating the Milwaukee Bucks’ Greek and Nigerian dual heritage. So if you're looking to snag the Giannis Fortnite bundle for yourself, look no further.
