Details about LeBron James' Fortnite skin have fallen, courtesy of data miners HYPEXIC delving into the next Fortnite update. So now we have our first real look at the look of the basketball legend in the real battle multiverse. As you can imagine, Epic Games has been thorough, giving LeBron several clothing styles, including a very obvious marketing link to Space Jam 2.
We’ve poured all the leaks to complete things for you, including the LeBron skin release date, price, and additional cosmetics.
In addition to the leaks, LeBron himself has released a fun trailer, showing an IRL version of his Fortnite skin. Take a look below.

Credit where it is due, this is absolutely an aspect I would give myself if I had even an ounce of talent on the track. I’d like to find a custom tailor who would be willing to put golden lion heads on my shoulders.
Lebron Fortnite leather: first appearance
The first of LeBron's Fortnite skins makes him wear a black jacket (he looks like he's wearing a collared shirt underneath), a lion's head hood, a golden crown hovering over his head, and a pair of wings. black and gold that would allow someone to sink into their hands. happy heart. It also includes different pairs of its own line of shoes, the Nike Lebron 19.
The basic style of this dress also allows LeBron to abandon gold if he feels more neutral. Turns the gold pavilions into black and gives their crown a pinker hue.
It wouldn’t be Fortnite without a marketing tie, and of course LeBron is the star of the launch of Space Long: A New Legacy. LeBron has a Tune Squad t-shirt and shorts with the iconic blue and orange colors.
Finally, LeBron refers to his own family life with the inclusion of a Taco Tuesday-themed dress. LeBron frequently celebrates Taco Tuesdays at home and has become something like his meme for your fans. Fortunately, the alternate suit doesn’t make it a nightmare-sensitive walking block, as could another Fortnite skin. You also get a nice little backpack.
LeBron James at Fortnite: Other Cosmetics
LeBron James receives several cosmetics to complete his repertoire. The first is his emotional “Silencer,” based on his celebrating on the track.

Of course, I wouldn't be a sports star without a number. LeBron's "6" back bling adds a large number of neon yellow or yellow / pink to any character's back.
As seen in the first image, LeBron has a cosmetic glider that provides him with giant black and gold wings. His picket takes the form of a giant lion's head with a spiky mane of hair that has a positive Super Saiyan look.
These additional cosmetics can be obtained by completing various challenges. HYPEX seems to have a reading of what to expect when the skin comes into effect.

Note that LeBron’s gold and black dresses and cosmetics include a slider on the Fortnite wardrobe that allows you to adjust the color balance of each item.
Finally, we have a LeBron-themed loading screen that shows him submerged in the gods.
LeBron Fortnite skin release date
Okay, so when can we expect LeBron James to come to Fortnite? Epic has announced that LeBron will arrive in the item store on July 14 at 8pm ET.
We still don’t know how much LeBron’s Fortnite skin will cost. That said, given the multiple styles of clothing, cosmetics and more, I wish it was a premium item. According to HYPEXIC, there will be different purchase options.
"For those wondering, yes, you can buy LeBron's Peak, Emote and Glider separately or all 3 at once as a package, but you can't buy the Backbling, you should get the original LeBron James skin or the Pack of 2 skins! ”HYPEX said.
