An Original Spirit: Tennis Champion Naomi Osaka Serves Two Sides of Herself in the Fortnite Icon Series
An inspiration to many, Naomi Osaka — tennis champion, activist, fashion designer, and entrepreneur — is soon taking on her next challenge. And you get to join her on the adventure! Noami Osaka’s dropping onto the Fortnite Island as the latest member of the Icon Series, with her Outfits and accessories becoming available Thursday, March 3, 2022, at 7 PM ET.
Eager to serve an ace even before owning the Naomi Osaka Outfits? Compete in the Naomi Osaka Cup happening March 2! The top-performing players in each region will unlock both Outfits and both Pickaxes/Back Blings of the Naomi Osaka Set, as well as a Spray.
The Naomi Osaka Set: Playing Doubles
There are many sides to Naomi Osaka. Refusing to be defined by any one thing, Naomi brings this spirit of individuality with her to Fortnite. Display some of her influences with the fantastical designs of two Naomi Outfits! Also, polish your forehand and approach with matching accessories for each of them.
Matching the Naomi Osaka Outfit, the Royale Racket Pickaxe (included with the Outfit) creates a royal pink trail when you swing it. Wear the Pickaxe as a Back Bling when back on the pursuit of Victory Crowns. And before even landing on the Island, enter battle with the enchanted The Queen's Cloudcarriage Glider. The Naomi Osaka Outfit comes with the Court Queen alt Style.
Matching the Dark Priestess Naomi Outfit, the Portalforger Paddle Pickaxe (included with the Outfit) creates a green trail from unknown spirit realms when swung. Put on the Pickaxe as a Back Bling when you’re haunting opponents. Additionally, when you’re descending on the Island, ride the fog of unseen dimensions with the Cursed Hazeboard Glider. The Dark Priestess Naomi Outfit comes with the Neon Priestess alt Style.
Also in the Naomi Osaka Set, get ready to rally with the Serve Stance Emote 🎾 (Moves by Stefan Bojic.)
