Despite being a Battle Royale title, Fortnite has maintained a very complex storyline over the years. Every new skin, weapon, and POI released in the game caters to this storyline, and further adds to the curiosity of the players.

Up till now, Fortnite’s plot has primarily revolved around the Zero Point. Ever since Chapter 1, several entities like the Devourer and the Visitor have tried to harness its energy, but have failed to do so.

One such important part of Fortnite’s storyline is Kevin the Cube. The mysterious item first appeared in 2018 and boasted storm-related abilities. Even though players assumed it to be a stationery item at first, Kevin moved to seven locations on the map and corrupted them. Soon after, it settled in Loot Lake and transformed it into a colossal bounce pad.

Kevin the Cube had also played a major role in initiating the Butterfly event. It had exploded itself and teleported everyone to a dimension called the “In-Between”.

It seems like players will finally get a chance to solve the mystery behind Kevin the Cube in Chapter 2 Season 6. As per leaks, the item will return to Fortnite as a skin this season.

Fortnite might release Fancy Kevin and Cube Ninja skins in Chapter 2 Season 6

The rumors of Kevin the Cube-themed skins have been floating around for a long time. These included a Fancy Kevin outfit and KevinCouture. Files for these skins have been in the game since the 15.20 update, but we haven’t witnessed their official release yet.

It is worth noting that the developers include the files for upcoming items months before actually releasing them. For instance, leaks had suggested a brand-new jetpack skin months before it released in Chapter 2 Season 5 for The Mandalorian.

Similarly, CubeNinja was the codename in the game files for Raz. Even though data miners had discovered CubeNinja in January 2021, Raz arrived in the game in March.

With the latest 16.20 update, Epic Games has updated KevinCouture with AirGlow material.

Hence, it is safe to assume that the leaks related to Kevin the Cube skins will finally become true in Chapter 2 Season 6.

The in-game files aren’t the only thing that hints towards the return of Kevin the Cube. Interestingly, the NPC named Raz has body tattoos that emit purple radiations. In addition to that, the map currently has several spires, that are located exactly in the places visited by the cube in Chapter 1.
