Chinese New Year cosmetics will be arriving in the Fortnite Item Shop, according to well-known data miner ShiinaBR.

With rumors hinting toward an in-game event to celebrate the Chinese New Year starting on Jan. 25, data miners were able to uncover skins, back bling, pickaxes, and more designed around Chinese samurai culture.

Epic Games hasn’t confirmed that these cosmetics exist since the company doesn’t comment on leaks or rumors.
