League of Legends' Jinx is officially joining Fortnite as a new skin, courtesy of a new partnership between Riot and Epic Games. This would mark the first time a LoL character found their way into another game universe if not for a PUBG Mobile crossover announced on Tuesday. The bigger story is that Riot is also bringing its whole library to the Epic Games Store, marking the first time they've been available on a platform other than Riot's own launcher.

You can watch the official trailer above for a first look at Jinx in Fortnite. This is all part of a big marketing push for Arcane, the new League of Legends Netflix show, which tells the origin story of Jinx and her sister Vi as they grow up on the mean streets of Piltover and Zaun, twin cities that illustrate the disparities between utopia and dystopia.

Below, we've got a full guide for how to get the Jinx skin in Fortnite and a list of other bonus items you can get.
