Aya Nakamura Closes Fortnite's 2022 Soundwave Series

Epic Games revealed that Aya Nakamura will be closing out The 2022 Soundwave Series in Fortnite next weekend. The record-breaking French-Malian singer will be taking the last stage of the event starting on October 6th with a weekend's worth of performances on a special island dedicated to her. We have the full rundown of how you can take part in the concert below, as this will be the last hurrah for the year in the series. 2022 was a pretty good year for this set, and we'll see how this momentum carries over into 2023 if they bring it back. We're pretty sure they will based on its popularity.
