Fornite introduces a brand new skin pack designed by one of the most influential video game artists of all time
Legendary battle royale shooter Fortnite has teamed up with an equally legendary artist to release a limited-time skin that’s up in the item shop right now! While the current hype may be around the recently released Spiderverse collaboration skins, it is worthwhile to take a peek at this one for reasons I’ll explain below!
Fortnite has become a household name at this point, and it is no stranger to basically any collaboration under the sun. Whether it be Attack on Titan or Marvel properties or even the staple FPS series Halo, Fortnite has teamed up with basically every franchise under the sun since it launched way back when. If you can think of it, it’s likely there’s a skin within the game for it by now.
However, this specific new skin caters to such a select few people that I am frankly astounded it even exists. The Amano’s Heart bundle is the package of cosmetics in question here, and if the name didn’t spoil it for you, this is a pack of skins that are designed by one of the most influential video game artists out there; Yoshitaka Amano.
If you aren’t familiar, well, you are. Amano is the artist behind nearly all of the early mainline Final Fantasy series art and character renditions, as well as the other most notable work of his on Metal Gear Solid 2. This Japanese artist has had a hand in more games than you think and is easily recognizable by his watercolour style alongside some frankly astounding linework.
And now, even Fortnite will allow fellow appreciators of this legend to use his custom designs in-game. Much like other cosmetic packages, the Amano’s Heart bundle comes with a new character skin, glider skin, a new pickaxe, and a weapon wrap as well. All of these are enhanced with that specific Amano flair, so to be blunt, they’re astoundingly gorgeous and well worth the money.
