Fortnite now available for Nintendo Switch, and it’s completely free

By reviews / 12. June 2018

Nintendo Switch fans will rejoice at this news, the portable console will very soon get its own version of Fortnite. And it’s free.

You will be able to download it today from 10pm BST from the Nintendo eShop and it’ll have both local and online multiplayer.

The enormously popular shooter has already been a smash success on PC, PS4, Xbox One and mobile platforms, but the Switch release is playable both in portable and docked mode, so offers the best of both worlds.

The news of the game’s Switch release was originally leaked prior to E3 2018, in a document posted by an anonymous 4Chan user. Now we not only know it’s real, it’s available almost instantly.
