  • Fortnite Launching on the Nintendo Switch Today

Fortnite's move to Switch will be the game's second jump to a new platform this year. Like the other versions, you only have to spend money if you want the game's premium features, which are very much optional. In this Reddit thread (and elsewhere on social media), players are claiming that even if they unlink their PS4 account from their Epic Games account, they still can't bring their progress over to Switch.

Fortnite for Nintendo Switch, one of the worst-kept secrets heading into E3, was officially confirmed today during the Nintendo E3 2018 showcase. What isn't obvious is whether or not Nintendo Switch Fortnite players can game with their friends playing Fortnite on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, or various mobile platforms. It's also a great move for Nintendo to embrace such a huge 3rd party phenomenon, as their strategy of filling the Switch with tons of games continues.

At present, Epic says there are no plans to bring the original "Save the World" PvE component of "Fortnite" to Switch. Then, sign into your PS4 Epic Games account on the official site, head into the account section, and change your username to anything. The 2019 Fortnite World Cup and its accompanying $100 million prize pool is open to anyone who plays the game. It's a complex, silly, and - most importantly - free game that's available on almost every platform: PC, Mac, iPhone/iPad, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. Unlike Sony, Nintendo has shown a willingness to allow cross-platform play with Xbox, so we'll have to see if that's something that will be available.

Using the Shotgun Tool, Aarons was able to see plenty of details for the free-to-play game, including the fact that it will be released tomorrow, June 12. Each tier costs 150 V-Bucks.
