Fortnite: Tennis star Naomi Osaka is coming to the game– Recently, Fortnite has just added the two-time U.S. Open and Australian Open champion Naomi Osaka as its latest celebrity crossover. On March 3, Osaka’s two outfits will be available along with a one-day tournament that will award her looks and bling to tournament participants.
Osaka’s appearances will be the 23rd and 24th outfits in Fortnite’s Icon Series (formerly known as the Creator Collab Series), where real-life celebrities, esports stars, and others have been featured since the fall of 2019. Other athletes who have appeared in the Icon Series include the English footballer Harry Kane, German football star Marco Reus, and the American basketball great LeBron James.
Her fashion sense and athletic prowess can both be seen in the two skins she has chosen; the Naomi Osaka Outfit features a tennis-themed outfit paired with the Royale Racket Pickaxe. It has an alt style called the Court Queen.
Outfits and accessories
As for the Dark Priestess Naomi Outfit, it pays homage to Osaka’s Haitian heritage and the syncretic religions of the island. Osaka, who was born in Japan and raised on Long Island and in Florida, competes as a Japanese citizen. Her father, Leonard François, is from Haiti. Dark Priestess Naomi comes with the Neon Priestess alt.
Naomi Osaka’s full set includes both outfits and their alts, two pickaxes, and gliders. The pickaxes may be worn as a back bling. The pack also includes her Serve Stance Emote, as performed by the freestyle tennis player and “Man of 100 Serves,” Stefan Bojic.
Epic Games has not given an official price for the bundle, but it should cost between 1,800 and 2,400 V-Bucks (roughly $16 to $20). Still, players can get a shot at unlocking both of Osaka’s outfits and her rackets, as well as the “Forbidden Ace” Spray, in the Solo-mode Naomi Osaka Cup on Wednesday, March 2. Epic Games’ announcement page has more on how that event will be scored and how prizes will be awarded.
