Fortnite (probably) coming to Switch

Nintendo E3 2018 Good news for Switch means is bad reading for 3DS

It made its debut back in 2014 on the Sony PS4, PC and the Microsoft Xbox One.

There's now no word yet on when exactly the new GameCube controllers for the Nintendo Switch will be released. Fortnite on Switch has been hinted at for quite some time now, so further evidence to confirm this "pretty-much-confirmed" game coming to Switch is always welcome.

Let's start off with the obvious; a new Super Smash Bros. game will be the focus of Nintendo at E3 2018.

This will commemorate the tournament that will be held next week and will be distributed in a Nintendo Switch News article on the Splatoon 2 channel on Thursday 7th June.

SciresM on Twitter, well known in the Switch community for his work on a custom firmware for the console, found a listing on the eShop store that mentions Fortnite.

Nintendo has had one of the most incredible years in video game history. The Android version has not been released but that is said to be coming soon.

We should hear more information about Fortnite's future during Nintendo's E3 livestream on Tuesday, June 12th, at 9:00 AM PT.

Fortnite is free on all platforms but it offers a variety of cosmetics that the players can buy to make their character look different. At this point, the real question is whether or not the game will launch during E3 2018, or if it won't be ready until later this year.

"In the 2018 - 2019 season, Epic Games will provide $100,000,000 (R1 254 965 000.00) to fund prize pools for Fortnite competitions", reads a blog post on the developer's website.

Nintendo is now only a week away from showing off their plans for E3 but it seems GameStop has nearly jumped the gun adding 10 full price Switch titles to their online inventory.
