A brand new Star Wars skin is coming to Fortnite this month and it’s one a lot of players have been waiting for. Yes, it’s finally time to say that Obi-Wan Kenobi is coming to Fortnite and we know everything from what’s coming in the bundle, how you can get your hands on it early, and the Fortnite Obi-Wan Kenobi skin release date. So, keep reading and we’ll fill you in with all the information you need to know.
The Fortnite Obi-Wan Kenobi skin release date is going to coincide with the Disney Plus series of the same name – a show that follows Obi-Wan on Tatooine around ten years after the events of Episode III. This means the skin’s appearance is going to be based off of Obi-Wan’s appearance in this show, and not Episode III or the Clone Wars. There’s nothing stopping Epic Games from releasing alternate styles in the future, but for now, we’re getting an older Kenobi.
However, that’s still hardly a bad thing. If you want to know when you can get your hands on this cosmetic, we have all the information below.

We don’t know how long these will be available for in the in-game Item Shop, but it’s worth picking them up as soon as you can if you want to make sure you get them. Sometimes, cosmetics are only around for a week – if not less.
