Fortnite Nintendo Switch eShop Information Suggests A June 12, 2018 Debut

Fortnite Launching on the Nintendo Switch Today

Nintendo Switch Hackers Being Banned From Online Services: Reports

The Daily Mail reports that one school in Bristol said in a statement: 'We've heard some of our children, including in Year 3, are playing a game online called Fortnite ... if your child is playing this game talk to them and make sure you know what they are doing'. The game's battle royale mode, which has taken the world by storm, will now be playable on the Nintendo hybrid console.

The Fortnite on Switch announcement was "leaked" and rumored previously, and many fans did expect an announcement at E3, and Nintendo did not disappoint. A new entry in the popular Mario Party series, which blends video game and board game together, will be released on 5 October.

The multiplayer shooting game's most popular format sees 100 people jump out of a plane to land on an island and fight until only one is left. Of course, whether those games can pull off the same addicting gameplay as Fortnite remains to be seen.

In addition to the release date, the leaked listing also reveals that the file size will come in at 2044MB (almost exactly 2GB). And it's coming out immediately, at 10 a.m. PT on Tuesday morning. The Switch's online services are now free, but starting in September Nintendo will begin to charge for online multiplayer.

"We had no idea, when we let her play the game, of the addictive nature or the impact it could have on her mental health".

In addition to the game itself (which will likely be free to download like it is on every other platform), Nintendo will sell the V-Bucks premium currency and a Wingman Starter Pack, which will presumably include some cosmetic upgrades for players who want to bring a bit of extra flavor to character customization. This comes a day prior to Nintendo's E3 2018 event that should have officially announced the game.

For those keeping score, Fortnite is now available for the PC, macOS, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and iOS.
