Fortnite releases on Nintendo Switch today

On Tuesday, Epic Games will host an 50-team, 100-person invitational event during the Electronics Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles for its popular game Fortnite.

Fortnite Switch will be playable with other gamers on Xbox One, PC, Mac, and mobile.

A clip of the Spectator Mode can be found below, plus more images. In a bulleted list of the infractions said to have been committed by the girl, the usual suspects like staying up in secret to play Fortnite and having problems in school because of it were there. Now you can take the game with you on-the-go on a device more capable than a smartphone.

The report says that the girl's parents bought her an Xbox One in January and she downloaded Fortnite right away.

"Fortnite" combines the building mechanics of "Minecraft" with the shooter aesthetics of the game "Overwatch".

We've also reached out to both Nintendo and Sony on the matter, to see what the hang up is here.

The game hit mobile platforms some time ago, and since the Switch is built using a number of mobile-oriented components, porting Fortnite to the Switch seemed like an obvious win.

Fortnite on the PlayStation 4 does not allow cross-console play, this much we know. Fortnite will be free to download and play, and though there hasn't been official confirmation just yet, players will likely link their Epic Games accounts to buy skins and other cosmetics in-game. "With Switch, you can squad up with your friends in the same room or around the world, and even play on the go".
