Legendary Final Fantasy artist Yoshitaka Amano has teamed up with Epic Games for a Fortnight skin we don't think anyone had on their bingo cards. Called Crossheart, the design even got its own debut trailer, which you can see above.
While certainly cool, the Fortnite-ness of it all is quite overpowering. Amano's intricate brushwork and expressive composition are kind of lost in the translation to 3D and Fortnite's already distinct (if safe) art style. We wouldn't begrudge the legend a thing, of course, but we can't help but prefer the earlier hits.
Crossheart is a Rare Outfit, and part of the Amano's Heart set, which is available now in the Fortnite Store.

Yoshitaka Amano's anime film collab with Mamoru Oshii, Angel's Egg, is also great if you like Amano's artwork.
It's a very surreal film and you certainly won't get it the first time, but even if just to look at Amano's artwork come to life, it's beautiful.
Yeah if you didn't tell me it was Amano.. his magic gets lost there sadly but still seems to be quite a nice skin? I am not familiar with the game but the dragon ball ones looked great
Not great, is it
@Mitsui the loading screen that comes with the skin is a dead giveaway. Also the set is called “Amano’s Heart”.
But yeah wish they stylized it a bit more.
Have to get it. Amano is everything.
@Hydra_Spectre Angels Egg is incredible.
