Although Epic is currently embroiled in a public spit with Apple, the publisher has still found the time to partner with Nintendo to produce a Fortnite-themed Nintendo Switch that will sell gangbusters.
The Nintendo Switch is already one of the most sought after consoles, and Fortnite continues to be one of the most played games in the world. Combine the two and you have an idea that basically sells itself.
The limited bundle offers an exclusive and surprisingly tasteful design. You get an exclusive pair of yellow and blue Joy-Con with the home button looking like the game’s battle bus. The Nintendo Switch Dock and the console itself are covered in portraits of the game̵
Since Fortnite is free to play, players will receive additional loot and a download code for the Wildcat bundle as part of the deal, which will allow them to choose from different skins. 2,000 V-Dollars, Fortnite’s in-game currency, are also included, so you can treat yourself to something nice in the store.
Fortnite has been a huge hit on Nintendo Switch – and pretty much every platform it appears on – so it’s no surprise that both Nintendo and Epic are keen to capitalize on the game’s popularity while it’s doing well. The game is not currently available on the App Store and Google Play Store as the game was retrieved by Apple and Google after Epic violated each platform’s guidelines.
The Nintendo Switch Fortnite Special Edition will be available in Europe on October 30, 2020 and will be available in Australia and New Zealand a week later. There’s no word of a US release right now, though we’d be surprised if Nintendo or Epic didn’t release the limited edition console in North America in the near future.
