According to Shiina, the exciting League of Legends x Fortnite crossover may happen as soon as November 7. This will be a day after the release of Arcane on Netflix and Twitch. However, there have also been reports of Fortnite and LoL announcing the collaboration within the next week.
So, there is no official release date for the Fortnite x LoL crossover or the launch of Jinx skin in Fortnite. But, the news is almost confirmed and may be announced officially any time soon.
How to get Jinx Skin in Fortnite x League of Legends Crossover?
As of now, there is no official information on how Jinx will look in Fortnite. And, it isn’t also clear that how you’ll be able to get it. However, there have been a lot of speculations and expectations ever since the news got out.
Hopefully, Jinx will be available in the classic form holding her iconic shark gun as back-bling along with a melee weapon or a glider. It is also possible that Epic even introduces a separate Arcane look for Jinx.

The outfit could be available as an NPC or a simple reward. It can also be available as a regular outfit in the shop that you can buy with V-Bucks. If it is available for V-Bucks, then the price can be somewhere between 1500 V-Bucks to 2100 V-Bucks or more.
The method to claim Jinx, or maybe Vi as well, will depend on how big the collaboration is. We will have to wait for the official confirmation from either Epic or Riot to know that. Both Fortnite and LoL fans are eagerly waiting for the announcement. Could be here any moment!
