One of the most iconic Star Wars characters is making his way to Fortnite as Anakin Skywalker is finally getting a skin.
Players will be able to obtain this skin and a bunch of other Star Wars-themed content from the Item Shop.
Anakin Skywalker Fortnite Release Date
The Anakin Skywalker bundle and skin was released in Fortnite on May 2, 2023. Fortnite confirmed this in the official announcement.
Keen Star Wars fans will know this isn’t the first time Anakin has appeared in the game. His infamous alter ego was a Tier 100 skin in Chapter 3, Season 3.
Anakin Skywalker Fortnite Bundles & Prices
The Anakin Skywalker bundle is available for 2,100 V-Bucks in the Fortnite Item Shop. Purchasing the bundle will give you six items:
- Anakin Skywalker Outfit
- Jedi Holocron Back Bling
- Anakin’s Jedi Interceptor Glider
- Fusion Cutter Pickaxe
- Actis-Class Weapon Wrap
- Lightspeed Interceptor Emoticon
Additionally, you can purchase the Anakin skin separately for 1500 V-Bucks instead of buying the whole bundle.
Unfortunately, despite holding a lightsaber in the promotional image, the pickaxe is not the famous Star Wars weapon.
This is because no other Star Wars skin has ever had one in the game and they are also added as in-game Mythic weapons.
Fortnite is no stranger to collaborations with this next Star Wars crossover following on from Attack on Titan. Gamers can expect many more partnerships over the next year, and Doctor Who is reportedly one of them.
