A recent leak suggested that Fortnite Nintendo Switch would be revealed during Nintendo's E3 Direct presentation. What this means is, if you've been playing Fortnite on the Xbox One, PC, or iOS, you can carry over and sync your progress with the Switch version of the game.
For those who want to be first to download the new game, you'll need to log into the Switch store at the time mentioned above. You can just plug your headphones into the jack like God intended, according to developers from Epic Games on today's Nintendo Treehouse Live stream from the E3 show floor.
It's important to note that the Switch version of Fortnite only features the free Battle Royale mode and not the PvE-centric Save the World campaign. However, the gravity of the situation came to the forefront when the father found her sitting on an urine-soaked cushion while playing the game.
Though the error message only refers to an unspecified "platform", it would appear the culprit is the PlayStation 4. Of course, whether those games can pull off the same addicting gameplay as Fortnite remains to be seen.
In addition to the game's availability on Nintendo Switch, a brand new starter pack was also made available today on all platforms. One hundred people jump out of Fortnite's battle bus and parachute down to an island, search for assault rifles and gear, then battle it out until only one person is left standing, resulting in a victory royale.
Despite being free, there are 100 tiers of weapons, outfits and gear that can be purchased using the in-game currency called V-Bucks.
