During the Nintendo E3 direct, the rumored Fortnite Switch edition was officially revealed by Epic Games. This is a smart move with the popularity of Nintendo’s hybrid.
The best part? It’s available now! Fortnite for the Nintendo Switch is available as a free download right now on the eShop, and jumping from the Battle Bus is just as easy on the go as it is on home consoles. We’ve already played a couple rounds, and despite taking a slight resolution cut due to hardware limitations, Fortnite plays really well. Connecting with other players was smooth, and I didn’t experience any lag while playing over WiFi. It may not look as pretty as its console brethren, but controls are tight and responsive, and playing on the go outweighs the slight graphical degradation. We haven’t had a chance to play docked yet though, so we will update you as soon as we get the chance. Check out the announcement trailer below, and stick to Electric Bento for continuing E3 coverage.
Fortnite is available now from the Nintendo eShop. A download link can be found here.
