Released at 1pm Eastern (10am Pacific), Fortnite is now available for download in the Nintendo Switch eShop online store. If you try and login to Fortnite on Switch, you'll receive an error message and there is no way to log out and try another account.

At present, Epic says there are no plans to bring the original "Save the World" PvE component of "Fortnite" to Switch.

The Verge noted that the same appears to be the case with the Nintendo Switch version, a fact that TechCrunch has since verified with an Epic spokesperson. They have nothing to gain by supporting Fortnite cross-play, whereas Xbox and Nintendo have everything to gain from it. 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. Fortunately, the question of whether or not Fortnite on the Switch supports cross platform play is easy to answer.




Nintendo said the game can be played on-the-go or at home, per the Switch's main functionality as a portaable or a TV-based game console. Provided Sony is responsible, it's effectively dictating where you're allowed to play using your main account (assuming the iPhone version won't cut it), not just your choice of device. You can download it from the Microsoft Store here.

In addition to the game's availability on Nintendo Switch, a brand new starter pack was also made available today on all platforms. According to this leak, it will be available on June 12, 2018, the same day as the E3 2018 Nintendo Direct.

The format and prize pool breakdown for the $3 million Fortnite: Battle Royale Pro-AM Tournament have been revealed. Specifically, it includes 600 V-Bucks (in-game currency used to purchase cosmetics and emotes in battle royale), the fighter pilot-looking Wingman Outfit and the Bogey Bag Back Bling.
