Guess who’s back?

The Eminem Fortnite skin has been absent from the Item Shop for nearly 30 days and is back. In addition to the Eminem skins and cosmetics, Epic Games rolled out a new Emote themed to the artist's latest hit, "Houdini." This article explains everything you need to know about this new Emote and Eminem's return to the Fortnite Item Shop.

How to get the Houdini Emote in Fortnite

The new Houdini Emote marks Eminem's second in Fortnite, following the "Real Slim Shady" Emote. To unlock it, head into Fortnite and navigate to the Item Shop. Once there, you will see the Houdini Emote front and center. This Emote will cost you 500 V-Bucks and is an easy addition to your rotation.

If you're wondering about the origins of this Emote, Eminem released his newest single, "Houdini," on May 31. It has since garnered plenty of attention ahead of the artist's upcoming album "The Death of Slim Shady (Coup de Grâce)," set to release later this year. Following Eminem's debut in Fortnite earlier in the year, adding another Emote to capitalize on the new track only made sense.

Guess who's back? Eminem returns to players' Fortnite lockers

On June 22, Fortnite investigated the inexplicable disappearance of the Rap Boy Eminem Outfit from players' lockers. Three days later, Epic Games re-enabled the skin as the rap artist returned to the Fortnite Item Shop. Although the developers provided no explanation, players used it as an opportunity to meme the moment.

It's challenging to say whether this was an intended joke by Epic Games, but probably not. More likely, this is a hilarious coincidence that plays right into the theme of "Houdini." The Emote is available for an unknown period, so if it interests you, you better grab it before it's too late.
