Fortnite: Neymar Jr Skin Leaks Ahead Of April 27 Release Date

Leakers reveal their Neymar Jr set ahead of today’s worldwide trailer.

The Fortnite x Neymar Jr collaboration became a focal point of the Chapter 2 – Season 6 Battle Pass on top of other characters like Lara Croft and Raven. Unfortunately, Epic Games was not quite ready to reveal the Brazilian footballer’s in-game appearance until much later in the season.

That time has officially arrived. Yesterday began the teaser train toward the eventual unveiling of Neymar Jr in Fortnite Battle Royale. While the teasers got fans a glimpse at what to expect, the game’s many data miners got their hands on the skin early, which was released to the Twitter world earlier today.

Neymar Jr Skin Leaked

Twitter account ESFortniteBR first tweeted the Neymar Jr cosmetics, which included the base skin and alternate versions. The Paris Saint-Germain player appears in Brazilian colors and black-on-black for the styles closely resembling him. Neymar Jr’s two alternate versions look like something out of a comic book, with a character fully suited in armor still representing Brazil’s color scheme.

Neymar Jr’s other cosmetics include two gliders, two pickaxes, gold football back bling, football trophy back bling and a loading screen background. The items all leaked ahead of today’s noon EST worldwide reveal.

When Will Neymar’s Cosmetics be Available In-Game?

Fortnite’s Twitter account announced April 27 as Neymar Jr’s release date. It’s not clear at this point if all Season 6 Battle Pass owners will receive the entire set for free or if some will require players to complete quests. Whatever the case may be, Fortnite fans can expect to see a lot of Neymar Jr running rampant across the Battle Royale landscape beginning Tuesday.
