With the release of Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings just around the corner, it looks like the main character from the movie will soon be coming into the popular battle royale game Fortnite. Although it hasn’t been announced by Epic Games that Shang-chi will be released in the game, the developer of the game essentially confirmed that he will be released in the near future.
The reason for this Shang-Chi skin for Fornite occurred is thanks to Twitter user @thebritenite. Apparently, Epic Games gave early access to the Shang-Chi skin to this play when he logged into Fortnite. While visiting their in-game locker, they found the Shang-Chi skin waiting to be obtained. Additionally to getting this Marvel character skin, a new piece of Back Bling and a new pickaxe that is associated with the Marvel icon were also included.

As a lot of fans were quick to realize after seeing the skin, the version of the Shang-Chi skin that is coming to the game does not really resemble the Marvel character that is being played by Simu Liu in the coming film. Instead, Epic Games seems to have modeled the skin after the comic book iteration of the Marvel character.
At this moment, Epic Games still hasn’t released any announcement when Shang-Chi skin will be coming to Fortnite, but it shouldn’t be a long time until we hear more. With the new leak now proving his existence in the game and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings will be released soon, we should hear an announcement in the next couple of days or weeks.
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings will be released on September 3, 2021
