Fortnite is now available for Nintendo Switch

Nintendo announced via livestream at E3 in California that Fortnite – which has more than 40 million players on PC, Xbox One, Playstation 4 and mobile phones – arrives on Nintendo Switch today.

Starting today at 10AM Pacific Time, Fortnite will be available for free from the Nintendo eshop and will contain support for multiple controller configurations and free online play.

Unlike other online games such as Rocket League that have been ported to the platform, it doesn’t appear that Fortnite on the Switch will include any Nintendo-specific content, so you can keep dreaming about a Metroid skin or Wario emote. There is also no cross-play with Fortnite players on the PS4.

Check out the Trailer:

In Fortnite Battle Royale, you’re transported to large, colorful world with 99 other online players by way of a floating “battle bus” powered by hot air balloon. The bus slowly makes its way across the map from above, and you must skydive from the bus to the ground below within a set amount of time, deploying a parachute to bring you safely down to the location of your choice. Keep in mind 99 other players are doing the exact same thing and will try to kill you as soon as you’re on the ground, so choosing where you land is key.

Upon landing, the game is basically The Hunger Games, minus Jennifer Lawrence and her love triangle. Your goal is to be the last one standing. Everyone lands with only a pickaxe, which can be used to whack at literally anything (trees, buildings, cars) in exchange for wood, brick, or stone. Those resources can then be used to build walls, floors, roofs, and stairs. Players will often create floors and stairs to walk across thin air, or to erect towers from which they can snipe other unsuspecting players. You’ll find guns, ammunition, grenades, bandages, and other useful supplies in abandoned houses around the map, and it’s imperative to stock up on these items — everyone else will be.
