More and more characters from series, movies, or other games appear as skins in Fortnite. So that you don't lose track and especially don't miss the story behind the characters, we'll keep you up to date here in our weekly Fortnite skin series. This week, we have Harry Kane, a footballer!

The Harry Kane skin is an epic Fortnite outfit from Fortnite's iconic series. The skin is part of the HurriKane set (yes, amusing pun). The Icons series combines gaming, music, sports, film, and fashion. With it, Fortnite celebrates the artistic visions, traits, and lifestyles of the world's best creators and stars.

Harry Kane was first added to the game on June 12, 2021, in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7.

Who is Harry Kane?

As a soccer fan, you probably know Kane. But if you are not one of them, we would like to introduce him to you! Harry Kane is an English professional footballer who plays as a striker for the Premier League club, Tottenham Hotspur, and is captain of the English national team. Kane is considered one of the best strikers in the world and is known for his goal-scoring abilities and combination play skills. That means he is excellent at kicking the ball into the net! (Editor: if you didn't know that, you probably never visited our FIFA site.)

He was called up to the senior national team at the age of 16. In his first full season at the club, Kane scored 31 goals in all competitions, was the second-highest scorer in the Premier League, and was named PFA Young Player of the Year.

In May 2018, ahead of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, he was named captain of the national team. At that World Cup, Kane was the top scorer, won the Golden Boot, and led England to a fourth-place finish, their best finish since 1990. He also led England to a second-place finish at UEFA Euro 2020, their first final appearance at the tournament, and first major final since 1966. So who, if not him, deserves his own skin in Fortnite?
