This makes Fortnite available on every major platform.
A nine-year-old girl was reportedly placed in a rehab due to her addiction to an online video game, Fortnite. In Fortnite's case, trying to link the Epic Games account you have on the PS4 with the Nintendo Switch version results in an error saying this is not allowed.
At present, Epic says there are no plans to bring the original "Save the World" PvE component of "Fortnite" to Switch. We assume that cross-play with all of these other platforms will be supported on the Nintendo Switch. Hopefully if they figured it out for Fortnite, that means I will soon no longer be in danger of strangling myself in several wires if I want to play Splatoon 2 with my friends. It turns out, the girl had been secretly spending up to 10 hours a night playing the game and was using the card to purchase in-game extras. It's also a great move for Nintendo to embrace such a huge 3rd party phenomenon, as their strategy of filling the Switch with tons of games continues. The Battle Royale mode will be free to download for the Nintendo Switch from 6pm BST, as it is on other consoles.
