There have been plenty of rumors swirling lately that Nintendo would feature a Fortnite Switch reveal within its Nintendo Direct presentation. The game’s rating applicant is listed as “Epic Games Korea”, and Nintendo Switch is the only platform it’s being rated on.
Made popular as a free version of a battle royale game, that, at the time, was dominated by the likes of PUBG, the unique style and building aspects quickly shot the game to stardom. Among the announced games were Fortnite, Dragon Ball FighterZ, Paladins, and Overcooked 2 among other previously announced titles, Mario Tennis Aces and Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate.
The games will likely be featured during a Nintendo pre-E3 2018 Direct livestream and will definitely shore up the Switch’s gaming library significantly. We can all dream.
In the meantime, you can play Fortnite on a variety of other platforms until E3 2018 begins on June 12th. But according to a recent leak, we might be finally getting a Fortnite port for Nintendo Switch. It’s now available to play on Windows, Mac, PS4, and Xbox One. And, also given that Epic seems to want its Battle Royale game on everything including phones, it’s not much of a stretch to imagine we’ll see Fortnite on Nintendo’s hybrid handheld.
The pre-E3 floodgates have officially opened as leaks are starting to spring up at a furious pace. Following rumors that this may be happening in the future, both Epic Games and Nintendo have been very tight-lipped about it.
Fortnite generated 6 million for its parent company Epic Games in April, more than double the amount it brought in February. And with E3 less than two weeks away, I think we can safely bet on where that “when” will be.
