UPDATED - First In-Game Tease For LeBron James Fortnite Skin Appear

The first in-game teases for the LeBron James Fortnite skin have shown up. They were expected this week with the release of the skin due by the 14 July.

The tease appears exactly where leaker @HYPEX predicted, the Basketball court west of Believer Beach.

Fortnite LeBron Tease Coming Soon

Thanks to Fortnite leaker @HYPEX on Twitter, we now have a better idea of where the in-game LeBron tease will take place.

Artwork is set to appear on the walls of the basketball court just West of Believer Beach. This should happen at some point prior to the release of the Fortnite LeBron James skin around the 14 July.

LeBron James IS Coming At Some Point

We don't know for certain whether this is the cause of the mystery Fortnite mural, but Shiina has stated that LeBron James is coming to Fortnite as the next Icon Series skin.

They have offered us this information with "100% confirmation" too, which should be quite convincing given their usual accuracy.

Space Jam 2 is right around the corner and this could be the perfect way to introduce one of the NBA's greatest players into Fortnite, right? Only time will tell, but we can imagine Epic Games will share something soon.

Fortnite Space Jam Collab

The most common theory that's being shared around is that this could be hinting at some Space Jam content coming to Fortnite. Space Jam: A New Legacy is starting to ramp up it's marketing given the box office numbers it needs to hit to recoup it's $150M budget.

Space Jam: A New Legacy is set to release in cinemas on 16 July. The date on the mural reads 7/14/2021. Of course, this date is written as Americans would so translates to 14 July 2021.

This means any content could be live just before the movie is released. We imagine any event would last at least 7 days to allow players to access the content

The Space Jam movie has already done some promotional work with Xbox Game Pass. They are offering their arcade style beat 'em up game for free to subscribers. This Fortnite collab could act as more marketing for the film.

Fortnite King's Bling Quest

Fortnite leaker @HYPEX on Twitter added that they has discovered a painting that will appear in-game soon titled Majesty/Grandeur along with an upcoming skin which contains the following text;

'Earn rewards by completing the King's Bling quests'

This, of course, lends more credibility to the Space Jam possibility given the star of the movie, LeBron James, is commonly referred to as 'King James'. We could be set to receive a Space Jam themed LeBron James outfit upon completion of this quest.
