Rumor: Fortnite Could be Headed to Switch with Exclusive Features and Content
Twitter user @LeakyPandy revealed today in a twitter post, that players could soon see the hugely popular game, Fortnite, on the Nintendo Switch, with an official reveal expected to be shown at the Nintendo Spotlight: E3 2018 presentation in June.
@LeakyPandy, under the name Vandal_Leaks, correctly leaked information before, surrounding the Nintendo Direct presentation in March. LeakyPandy said that Fortnite’s Battle Royale mode will come with “no substantial differences” and will support cross-platform play.
One of the most interesting part of this rumor is the following statement that @LeakyPandy made:
“Save the World, on the other hand, apparently got Nintendo’s interest. One of our most trusted sources pointed to us that this game’s version local Switch-to-Switch Save the World. Exclusive Nintendo IP related content is also being worked on exclusively for StW.”
On other platforms, this mode allows up to four players to team up online, but according to the rumor, the Switch version is slated to support local play between four consoles (which will could play as a large part of the port’s selling point in promotional material).
The leak also says that “exclusive Nintendo IP related content is also being worked on exclusively for Save The World”. This wouldn’t be too much of a surprise given that games such as Rocket League and Skyrim have done this already, and all users can already imagine themselves running around in Mario costumes, or with a The Legend of Zelda-themed attire or weapons.
It’s worth noting the following statement that @LeakyPandy made in his Twitter post:
“First of all, please consider this a rumor and take it with a grain of salt. We have been exposed to a lot of contradicting information about specifics, but after looking at it with perspective we think you deserve to know the predominating general gossip. YES, GOSSIP.”
This is telling the readers to take the information with a pinch of salt in case the information turn out to be false. We only need to wait and see what announcements are made in the E3 2018.
