E3 2018: Fortnite confirmed for Nintendo Switch

The worst kept secret of E3 2018 bar none is that Fortnite is coming to Nintendo Switch. We knew that already, but here’s the thing: you can play it right now.

The game looks and runs exactly as it does in its PC, Xbox and PlayStation iterations and offers the same complete battle royale experience as other iterations.

What isn’t clear at this stage is if the game has voice communications, which as players already know, are crucial to success when playing in squads. You may need to fire up the old Discord on another device if you want to be able to chat.

Fortnite drops on Nintendo Switch today, and should be live on the Nintendo e-Shop by the time you read this.
