Nintendo Confirms ‘Fortnite’ for Nintendo Switch

Save the World is a co-op sandbox survival game that is available now in paid early access on console and PC. And the game held a 16.3 percent market share among its competitors in the widely-popular battle royale game genre, more than Battlegrounds or H1Z1, according to data aggregated by Newzoo in March. Sure, I was hoping for some Nintendo-related goodies, but there's plenty of time for Ninty to add some of their trademark flourishes.

Epic Games has yet to officially confirm the existence of Fortnite on Switch, but at this point, it would be shocking not to see the game tomorrow. Don't worry, it's still free as only Save the World requires you to pay - that is if you don't purchase the completely optional seasonal Battle Pass.

One hundred celebrities and pro-Fortnite players will descend upon Los Angeles and the LA Convention Center at E3 today for the massive Fortnite Pro-Am tournament, with $1 million in winnings going to charity.

Set in a huge map this version of the game puts 100 players against each other. Of course, whether those games can pull off the same addicting gameplay as Fortnite remains to be seen. You don't want your account locked to a PC and PlayStation when you have so much more abilities to play with a lot more people by keeping it connected to literally any of your other platforms. The portable capabilities of the console might make Fortnite even better than ever, so we expect the sales of the Nintendo device to spike in the coming months.

Within minutes, people across the world had tweeted more than 100,000 times about James and what would happen to him next. "The one thing I've always done is considered my family - especially where my boys are at this point in their age".

When booting into the game on Switch with a PS4 account, you'll receive the error message, "This Fortnite account is associated with a platform which does not allow it to operate on Switch".

Revealed during Nintendo's E3 2018 livestream, the hugely popular online multiplayer game should be available to download for free.

On the Nintendo Switch, Fortnite players can have the complete Battle Royale experience. Other items of note are that the game will of course support add-on content, with V-Bucks and the Wingman Starter Pack being prominently listed.
