League of Legends is getting a new crossover event with Fortnite. The League champion Jinx is coming to Fortnite just in time for Riot and Netflix’s upcoming animated series, Arcane, which will feature Jinx as one of its main characters. This will be the first time that a League of Legends character has been featured in a non-Riot game.

Like so many characters from other games and movies, the Jinx skin will be purchasable from Fortnite’s in-game store. Players can also buy a bundle that includes Jinx’s Pow Pow Crusher Pickaxe, along with other Jinx-themed items, like a spray, back bling, music track, and two loading screens.

Riot Games is partnering with Epic for more than just character crossovers, though. The League of Legends developer is bringing many of its games to the Epic Games Store as well. Valorant, League of Legends, Teamfight Tactics, and Legends of Runeterra will all be available on the Epic Games Store in the near future, Riot and Epic announced on Thursday. Downloading any of Riot’s games from the Epic Games Store will also install Riot’s launcher, which will allow you to access all of the games directly.

Jinx will arrive in Fortnite on Nov. 4 at 8 p.m. ET, and the Arcane animated series will premiere on Netflix at 10 p.m. ET on Nov. 6.
