Nintendo has announced a special Fortnite Nintendo Switch console bundle will be out shortly next month that comes with some bonus content. This is a great way to introduce gamers to the popular free to play game that is currently taking the world by storm.
Nintendo and Epic Games made the announcement for the Fortnite Nintendo Switch bundle via a press release that was issued out earlier today. You can read the full details of the bundle posted below.
“Fans of the hit game Fortnite who are looking to play the game anytime and anywhere are in for a treat. On 5th October, a new Nintendo Switch bundle featuring special items from the game will rocket into stores. The set includes a Nintendo Switch console, 1,000 V-Bucks (in-game Fortnite currency) and the Double Helix Bundle – consisting of a unique Character Outfit, Back Bling, Glider and Pickaxe. The included V-Bucks can be used to purchase a Battle Pass, which unlocks additional in-game content for the free-to-play game, or can be used to purchase other in-game items.
In Fortnite on Nintendo Switch, jump in to be the last one standing in a high-stakes game of 100-player Battle Royale. Build huge forts. Outwit your opponents. Earn your Victory Royale. Squad up together online with friends in the same room or around the world. Regular updates to the game add fresh gameplay modes, outfits, weapons and items to Fortnite, such as the upcoming Season 6 content.”
Fortnite is of course a Battle Royale video game where 100 players are deployed on a single map in a fight to the finish. Aside from solo matches, you can also take part in pairs and squads to make survival to the finish slightly easier than going alone. Fortnite is available to download for free on Nintendo Switch via the official eShop.
