Elly Fortnite emote has now hit stores allowing fans to support their favorite J-pop star.
As Fortnite continues to carve itself into the annals of pop-culture-crossover immortality, the battle royale phenomenon this time goes east as they announce a brand new limited-time collaboration with J-pop phenom Elly. Also known as Crazyboy from J-pop supergroup J Soul Brothers III, his love for the game of Fortnite is well documented. He has even placed in the top 10 at the Australia Summer Smash Fortnite Pro-Am Tournament in February 2020 - a side event that sees pop-culture and celebrities are teamed up with pros to form squads and battle it out alongside accompanying major tournaments. As a major fan of the game, Elly spoke on his recent collaboration with Fortnite:
“I’m really honored and excited to be able to have something that I do on a regular basis with music and dance to be put into the game that I love, “Fortnite. I’m happy that the dance to my solo track PINK DIAMOND was selected! I look forward to help drive excitement around the official Fortnite tournaments in Japan! Certainly, give the emote a try! Love”
Elly also has a substantial solo career under the moniker Crazyboy - focusing more on hip-hop than his counterparts at the J-pop J Soul Brothers III are typically known for. His incorporation of unique, smooth, and invigorating dance moves in his performances and videos is one of the reasons for this collaboration with Epic Games.
Elly Fortnite Emote: How Much Does it Cost?
First reported as a rumor by various Twitter users and hinted at by the Japanese Nintendo Switch News Feed, the Elly emote will reportedly cost 500 Fortnite V-Bucks ($5.99). As this is a limited time run, the promotion will end April 20, 11:00 a.m. ET. Currently there are no plans in place yet to resell the emote outside of the limited-time run.
An avid Fortnite player, Elly also maintains a rather impressive YouTube account for live-streaming and Twitter account dedicated strictly for his gaming exploits, where you can catch him putting those very real Fortnite skills into practice.
