Fortnite Switch has cross-play with PC

While this is great news, it just makes me wonder why this wasn't the default for Splatoon 2, the Switch's other game that uses voice chat. Now you can take the game with you on-the-go on a device more capable than a smartphone.

If you needed any further proof that Fortnite is coming to the Nintendo Switch, then here you go.

Nintendo, in its pre-E3 press conference, announced Tuesday that players can download Fortnite free of charge and begin playing immediately, starting at 1 p.m. ET Tuesday. That is the only option available to you if you've ever played Fortnite on PS4.

The game will not have any Switch-specific features at launch, though developers are looking at items, such as touch screen support, for future updates.

Set in a huge map this version of the game puts 100 players against each other.




There's a bit of a disconnect between the PlayStation 4 and the Nintendo Switch when it comes to Fortnite.

It's also unclear if Fortnite Save the World will be ported alongside Battle Royale in 2018. Previously leaked specifically on the Nintendo eShop, the Wingman Starter Pack looks to be purchasable on every platform that Fortnite is available for.

Notably, you can only link an existing Epic account to Fortnite Switch if that account had been tied to PC, Xbox, or mobile before.

Sony's stubborn isolationism could ironically have the effect of convincing Fortnite fans to make the Switch (or Xbox) their primary Battle Royale console, since it allows them to play against a larger group of opponents without restrictions.

So it may well cost you V-Bucks to send items to your buddies.
