The digital version of basketball star LeBron James will not be limited to the cartoon world of Looney Tunes, since as of this Wednesday, the 14th, players from Fortnite can get the athlete’s costume and other in-game items.

The ‘O Rei backpack’, the ‘Wingspan hang glider’, the ‘Picareta Leão’ and the ‘Silencer gesture’, the famous celebration of the NBA player on the courts, come with the novelty.

In addition to the aforementioned package of items, it is possible to unlock the outfit that will be seen in the Warner Bros movie, which opens on Thursday.

The virtual LeBron will also feature Nike’s “LeBron 19” shoes, which will be released alongside the film as part of the publicity campaign. The sneaker has an eye-catching color that matches the orange, yellow and blue scheme of the new Tune Squad T-shirts, featuring an Air Max heel and a Zoom Air forefoot.
