iKON x Ninja Fortnite Event Details Released by Samsung

Samsung have released details for the upcoming tournament which will feature Fortnite streamer Ninja and k-pop group iKON. It will be taking place on Saturday, March 16th, 2019.

The news comes after Ninja teased that Epic Games would be making a “custom map” for the event, and more details have arised from that:

The details are as follows:

“Guests will compete in a mobile Fortnite tournament on the Galaxy S10+ throughout the day for a chance to play on stage with Twitch streamer Ninja and members of iKON. The top 12 players from the day will be announced at 5 pm and a live leaderboard will be displayed to track real-time results. The finals match will be played on a first-of-its-kind Creative island.”

It seems that Ninja and iKON will be battling on a new Creative Island made custom by Epic Games for the event rather than an actual “map” as Ninja previously teased.
