Fortnite Anakin Skywalker Skin: Pricing, Release Date & What You Should Know
Are you an Fortnite enthusiast who prefers their heroes in space over sandy shores? Well this month will bring something extra special with the arrival of Anakin Skywalker for Star Wars Celebration 4 on May 4.
Anakin Skywalker of Star Wars can already been found within Fortnite as Darth Vader as part of his Battle Pass skin, however this marks his debut unhelmeted appearance alongside Obi-Wan Kenobi Rey and even Mandalorians from other franchises such as Obi-Wan Kenobi or even Mandalorians in Fortnite! Anakin used to be unpopular among fans due to reactions against prequel movies; but nostalgia, the Clone Wars cartoon series and lackluster sequel films has transformed him into one of Star Wars most beloved characters within Star Wars canon – now joining Obi-Wan’s ranks and Obi-Wan’s battle pass skin! And now he will grace Fortnite!
Are You Wondering When the Fun Begins in Fortnite? Here is all of the information regarding Anakin Skywalker in Fortnite including when his release and cost occurs.
So far, all we know for certain about Anakin is his Episode 3-era design; an all black outfit and long hair with some cosmetic touches from Episode 2. Whether or not we see his appearance from Episode 2 as its own style remains to be seen; other cosmetic additions for Anakin would likely include Back Bling and Pickaxe items as part of his set; we would welcome having lightsaber twirling be an emote feature!
As part of their collaboration, there will also be other skins. While details remain vague as to their existence and appearance are yet unclear, one likely option could include Padme as female counterpart skin; and other Star Wars skins released through Item Shop may return for this event.
Based on previous Star War skin prices (such as Obi-Wan’s), Anakin should set you back 1600 V-Bucks when entering the Fortnite Item Shop.
Epic and Lucasfilm are unlikely to just release one skin of Anakin Skywalker and call it quits; rather, expect an attractive bundle with all his accessories for around 2500 V-Bucks.
Fortnite Anakin Skin Release Date
This year’s Fortnite x Star Wars event is set to kickoff on May 2, 2023; that could be when we see Anakin hit the Item Shop!
As with previous Fortnite crossovers, expect him to appear in the Item Shop for at least one season before departing; probably by May 4th next year.
Fortnite can be downloaded for free through PC’s Epic Games Store, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and Android platforms.
