NPC 43 and 44 in Fortnite
Epic Games will most likely release the Cuddle King and Lovely skin in the Item Shop before the characters appear on the map in Fortnite as NPCs. Additionally, it is also expected that these NPCs could offer bounties for players to complete and earn additional XP and Gold Bars.
However, there has been no official word from Epic Games regarding the release of these NPCs. Given that both these characters were introduced as part of the Valentine's Week celebrations, it would come as no surprise if both these NPCs make their way into the game on February 14th.
As far as the exclusive Cuddle King and the Lovely skin are concerned, Epic Games hasn't revealed how much V-Bucks these skins will cost after their release. Fortunately for Nintendo Switch owners, they can earn the Lovely skin via the Fortnite Nintendo Switch Cup.
However, until the skins and NPCs make their way into Fortnite, what bounties or weapons these new additions might have to offer remains a mystery. With that said, the entire community is eagerly waiting for these Valentines-themed NPCs to make their way into Fortnite.
