Epic Games and TikTok are partnering together to create the next big emote for Fortnite Battle Royale. Over the weekend, both entities announced an in-game prize and merch for whoever can produce an original dance and submit it to TikTok with the “#EmoteRoyaleContest” hashtag.

The videos would have to be used with the approved tunes found on Epic Games’ blog post, and if the dance is chosen, it will live in the game forever. The strategy to align with the ever-popular TikTok is a means to keep the game itself within the scope of popularity. It is also a way to not get into any more hot water over using dances from artists and actors alike without paying the respective creators. Two more creator tie-ins similar to Ninja’s new skin were also announced for eSports host Jordan Fisher and Pokimane, the 10th-most-followed streamer on Twitch. Fisher’s new emote can be found demonstrated in the Twitter video below.

Find out more details, such as age requirements on Epic Games’ blog post, with the contest itself lasting until January 24, 2020, at 11:59 PM PT.
